Almaz-Antey claims that the missile that downed the civilian plane was fired from Ukraine-controlled territory
As the court continues to look into the case of MH17 disaster in Donbas, the jury will hear the conclusions of Russian defense concern Almaz-Antey. DW reported that on June 9.
The Russian company’s experts claim that the missile that downed the civilian aircraft was fired from Zaroshchenske village in Ukraine-controlled territory.
The jury will also take a look on the materials of the case that disclose the part of the convicts in the downing of the Malaysian Airlines aircraft, as well as the ways of how the Buk missile system could reach Ukraine.
There are four defendats in this case: Igor Girkin, former Russian military officer and ex-Defense Minister of the self-styled “Donetsk People’s Republic”; Major General Sergei Dubinsky; Colonel Oleg Pulatov, and Ukrainian citizen Leonid Kharchenko. Pulatov is the only one who cooperates with the court; a group of lawyers represents his interests.
The Dutch court have interviewed 20 eyewitnesses who saw where the Russian Buk was launched from, and it wasn’t Ukrainian controlled territory. So who will the court believe, 20 eyewitnesses, or a Russian state owned military organisation responsible for supplying the Buk?
Muscovy must be getting worried, they wheeled out the horse today, to regurgitate some long since debunked lies. He says Washington continues to refuse to provide satellite images taken in July 2014, when the Malaysia Airlines Boeing airliner disaster happened. We saw the Russian satellite images made on Photoshop, but the real satellite images are safely in the hands of the JIT, supplied by the US in 2014.
The head of the Joint Investigative Team (JIT) Fred Westerbeke confirmed in the interview with the Russian independent newspaper Novaya Gazeta, that the United States provided the investigation with the highly classified satellite images from the time and place of the MH17 downing.
“Yes, we have them. My officer who has access to the intelligence materials marked “top secret” and “national secret” saw and analyzed the United States’ satellite data,” Westerbeke said.
