Fake: Ukrainian Plane Shot Down in Iran Because Iranian Nuclear Physicists Were on Board

Russian media have come up with many versions as to why a Ukrainian passenger jet was brought down by missiles in Iran earlier this month. Aside from blaming the United States directly for the crash, other versions include American spies and American drones, secret use of electronic jamming in order to set up Iran, and even arms smuggling through Ukraine. A most recent version of why the plane was shot down is that it was carrying secret nuclear physicists who under no circumstances should enter Canada. The sources of this latest theory, the channels used to disseminate it and the complete lack of any evidence to support it confirm that this is simply the latest such fake that will be used to further spread conspiracy theories.

    Interesting theory from the state sponsor of terrorism. The plane was flying to Ukraine, not to Canada, and if the Canadians deemed them undesireable, they would not have been allowed in the country. What next, a Yarosh business card was found at the site?
