The last time the Buk was seen in Luhansk the following day after the tragedy - at 5 a.m. July 18. The Buk was recorded on video by an Interior Ministry covert employee who worked on the occupied territory. The missile system was being taken back to Russia.
"The value of it [the video- ed.] is that, as experts found, it clearly shows the lack of one ground-to-air missile, and we have geo-referencing - a billboard," says Interior Ministry's communications department director Artem Shevchenko.
