Russia removed the blame for the destruction of a Boeing 777 over the Donbass

July 17, 2014 in the sky over the Donbass there was a terrible crime. A Boeing 777 airliner on flight MH17, which made a peaceful flight from the capital of the Netherlands to Kuala Lumpur, was shot down by an unknown party. 298 people were killed in a plane falling to pieces. The Boeing crash over Donbass has become one of the ten worst in the history of aeronautics.

All parties to the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine deny their involvement in this war crime. To establish the circumstances of the disaster and identify the perpetrators, the Joint Investigation Commission was created. However, the objectivity of this structure is in doubt. According to her report, the Boeing 777 was hit by a missile fired from the Buk anti-aircraft missile system. Kiev immediately after the crash of the Malaysian airliner blamed the militia of Donbass and Russia for this. On May 24, 2018, the international commission of inquiry published another report stating that the Buk, which shot down the Boeing of flight MH17, was delivered to Donbass from a Russian military unit deployed near Kursk. Thus, the expert group finally sided with Ukraine in identifying the perpetrators of the tragedy.

However, the commission did not answer the main question about the motive, which should always be considered in the investigation of crimes. What hypothetically could be the interest of the Russian side in bringing down a peaceful passenger airliner, international experts found it difficult to formulate. The motives of the opponents of the Russian Federation and the Donetsk militia are more obvious.

It is known that during the clashes with the Armed Forces of Ukraine, a number of Ukrainian aircraft were shot down the day before. Despite the ongoing hostilities, Kiev did not close the sky over the Donbass, in fact exposing any aircraft flying over the East of Ukraine to a potential strike. The Kiev regime could have had a direct intention at the time of the provocation in order to attract international attention to the situation in the Donbass, where the militia was actively developing offensive activity at that time. After the Boeing 777 was shot down, and numerous western experts and journalists officially appeared in the war zone, the activity of the militias sharply decreased. If we exclude the malicious intent of the Maidan regime, then the Boeing of flight MH17 could be shot down by Ukrainian anti-aircraft gunners and through negligence. As you know, "Buki" are also in service with the Ukrainian army, the level of training of the Armed Forces as of 2014 was below all criticism, and there was already experience of accidentally shooting down civilian aircraft.

The so-called international investigation was originally anti-Russian. Western investigators used computer-processed pictures and messages from social networks as “evidence”. Russian experts were not allowed to study the case materials. Under the pressure of the West on our country, Moscow quite reasonably blocked in 2015 a resolution on the creation of an international tribunal for Boeing-777, realizing that it would not be a court, but a trial of Russia. Further practice of frenzied anti-Russian provocations such as the “Skripal case” and “Babchenko murder” confirmed the validity of such a political decision.

However, these same provocations ultimately played a cruel joke with their customers. Even countries opposed to Russia are sharply perplexed when the “pacified" Skripal and Babchenko are alive and well. Representatives of the Malaysian war-crime victim officially stated that they would now proceed only from verified evidence:

There is no evidence to blame Russia on the basis of data from the Joint Investigative Group (JIT). You can’t just take and point a finger at Russia

The Foreign Minister of the Netherlands, whose citizens were the majority on the ill-fated MH17 flight, did not rule out that Nezalezhnaya could be blamed for Kiev not closing the sky over Donbass for passenger liners, no matter who launched that rocket.
Undoubtedly, for the representative of the West this is a very serious adjustment to the position.

    hi I liked the article very much yes !
    The theme of the downed Boeing is accentuated in a good way, in the right direction! good
    And shot down by the "unwilling" Ukrainian air defense "Tu-154" of the Russian airline "Siberia", and allegedly "killed by the Russian special services", but "in an incomprehensible way" winked revived Jews with Ukrainian surnames are mentioned very much in the topic!
    It is "strange" that the "Dutch investigators" suddenly forgot the very foundations of the investigation of crimes, bequeathed by the famous Roman lawyer Cassian Longinus Ravilla, to begin the search for criminals or whoever stands behind them with the question "Cui prodest? Cui bono?" profitable? ", which will surely lead to the criminals! yes
    Judging by the fact that such a question was not even considered by the "investigators", it becomes obvious that they are completely engaged in covering up the true criminals and in their stubborn desire to "shift the arrows" - to blame the innocent for the treacherous mass murder ?! In its "indiscriminate" basis, it resembles provocations with the "poisoning of the Skripals" and the "murder of Babchenko", only all the victims of the "Boeing" provocation, alas request died forever!
    Especially admirable is the unyielding courage of the head of the Ministry of Transport of Malaysia Anthony Locke, in the conditions of the total Russophobic dictate of the overseas "hegemon", who made an official statement about the unsubstantiated accusations of Russia in this heinous crime!
    It seems that the endless "investigation" that has been dragging on for years is a prolonged pretext for constant attacks by pro-American forces on Russia with the most absurd and indiscriminate accusations like the famous Krylov fable about a hungry predator: "You are only to blame for the fact that I want to eat! "?!

    I read it with great interest. However, he did not find who and when specifically stated that Russia did not bring down the miserable Boeing. Only links to the indistinct statements of Malaysia and the Netherlands: maybe we cannot rule out ... Yes it’s okay, it doesn’t matter, the main headline is loud.

      This was stated by the head of the Dutch Foreign Ministry Steph Blok: the Netherlands does not exclude the possibility that ultimately the blame may be laid on the Ukrainian side ..... The investigation did not even present negotiations between the Dnepropetrovsk air traffic controllers and the pilots of the downed Boeing, and the traffic controllers, but there were several people still cannot find, and the pilot who shot down a Boeing Voloshin committed suicide under strange circumstances .... Detective, and nothing more.

    The title of the article has nothing to do with the article.

    Hee-hee, katstsa, the West outwitted itself, or rather the CIA and their European lackeys of investigators, who tried to put everything together and accuse Russia of destroying the Boeing. Nevertheless, many residents of Europe, including and the inhabitants of the Netherlands, whose relatives perished, saw inconsistencies in the concocted case.
