 BBC refutes Russia's lies about MH17 film: "There is compelling evidence plane was brought down by powerful ground-to-air missile"

The British Broadcasting Corporation refutes false information regarding its documentary about the downed Malaysian Airlines MH17 flight, which has been spread by the Russian media.

As reported by Censor.NET, in response to the false information, disseminated by the media, in particular the Russian ones, about the documentary "The Conspiracy Files: Who Shot Down MH17?", which BBC2 plans to air on May 3, the BBC press office stated:

"The Sunday Express has misrepresented this programme. Contrary to their headline experts in fact tell the programme it was unlikely a Ukrainian fighter jet could have shot down MH17, as they cannot fly at such high altitudes. This impartial documentary takes a balanced viewpoint in reporting the competing theories surrounding the fate of MH17, including the evidence for and against those involving Russia, Ukraine and the CIA. It also examines in detail the findings of the official Dutch inquiry into the incident, which provide compelling evidence that the plane was brought down by a powerful ground-to-air missile."

As previously reported, the Russian media claimed that the new BBC documentary would confirm Moscow's statements on Ukraine's alleged involvement in shooting down MH17.

Earlier, Alexey Pushkov, the head of the foreign affairs committee of Russia's State Duma, stated the film would finally reveal the truth. On Sunday, he wrote on Twitter that the film "could bring the truth about the downed Boeing."
