On Sept. 26, prior to publication of JIT findings, Russian media published a press release by Russian Defense Ministry which stated there were no military jets in Donbas skies at the moment of the MH17 crash.
This official statement of Russia's MoD is extremely important, Kazanskyi believes, as with it, Russia has officially debunked an entire layer of self-produced lies that the Boeing was shot down by a Ukrainian war plane, which lies had been distributed by numerous Russian and several Ukrainian media since the tragedy.
Kazanskyi posted a set of print screens of fake 'news stories' from Russian media about the MH17 having been shot by a Ukrainian jet (with 'interviews' of 'witnesses' and 'images' from 'radars'). The journalist calls to create an 'online museum' of Russian MH17 fakes before they are taken down from the websites.
As reported earlier, findings of JIT investigating the MH17 Boeing downing above separatist-controlled areas on July 17, 2014, were presented to the public Sept. 28.
The JIT said the plane was shot down with a Buk missile from a separatist-controlled area. The missile launcher arrived there from Russia, investigators say. They have identified about 100 people involved in the transportation and shooting.
exclusive photos of the hangar and the submunitions of Russian missile Buk-M1-2, featured in the criminal investigation. Prosecutor's Offices of the Netherlands and Australia have prepared convincing evidence. It was established that submunitions that hit the Boeing exactly match those from the warhead of the latest Russian anti-aircraft missile Buk-M1-2. The system was developed in 1997, put into service of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in 1998, and was never delivered to Ukraine. In addition, independent experts from Germany, England and Poland studied the fragments of the debris and concluded they were part of a Russian Buk missile. Modern chemical analysis has identified the composition of the metal and found parts of the glass and skin of the same downed Boeing that had been cut by these elements prior to hitting the people.
In November 2015, President Poroshenko visited the Netherlands and said that Ukraine was employing its membership in the UN Security Council for investigation of the MH17 tragedy.
In May 2016, Australian law firm LHD filed a lawsuit against Russia and Russian President Vladimir Putin to the European Court for Human Rights on behalf of relatives of those killed in the Malaysian Boeing MH17. The lawsuit names Putin as accused defendant and demands $10 million for each killed passenger.
On July 17, 2016 President Poroshenko said that Russia was the only country inhibiting the investigation into the MH-17 crash.
"Russia, abusing the right of veto, blocked the decision of the UN Security Council to establish the International Tribunal to investigate the downing of MH17, which is an indirect and logical proof of its involvement in the crime. In spite of this, we and our partners are working and doing everything necessary to ensure accountability of all those behind this tragedy," the head of state remarked.
