Wow. It really IS Christmas.
Russia’s Investigative Committee has confirmed the claims by a Ukrainian airbase worker, who said he witnessed the deployment of a Ukrainian warplane armed with air-to-air missiles on the day the Malaysian Airlines flight MH-17 was shot down. He reports that the pilot, Captain Vladislav Voloshin returned from his sortie very frightened, saying, “the plane was in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
These revelations would confirm why the US and NATO satellite images were withheld, and why Kiev has refused to cooperate with the investigation, why Malaysia was barred from the investigation – and also why the crash site was so hastily and obviously tampered with, as confirmed by German investigators.
According to VT Editor, Jim W. Dean, it will be a credibility disaster for Kiev [to say nothing of US and NATO], if they continue to frame the Separatists for the downing of the airliner – and to continue to blame Russia for indirectly supplying the ground-to-air missile which was NOT involved in this incident.
Dean says, “The incident investigators, especially the Dutch and the airline associations failed horribly in their duties, obviously standing down due to orders from top political authorities. It is time to begin a formal investigation of the investigation to put the heat on whoever obstructed justice.
“This case should be the watershed for a complete makeover on how future investigations can be done, with firewalls put in place to block political interference and punishments for violations including flight sanctions for any country involved in suppressing an air accident investigation.
“Blocking a proper investigation recreates a 9/11 type event, where the guilty still walk among us knowing they got away scot free on 9/11, and instigates criminal negligence from those sworn to protect us…”
As reported by Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper on December 23, a Ukrainian airbase employee’s has come forward as a witness to the Ukrainian air force Su-25 combat jet, which took off from an airbase in eastern Dnipropetrovsk carrying air-to-air missiles – and returned without them on the day a Malaysia Airlines plane crashed in eastern Ukraine in July.
The airbase worker interviewed did not exclude the possibility that an Su-25 pilot could confuse a Boeing passenger airliner with a military jet. “This could be. There was quite a long distance, he could have failed to see what exactly that plane was.”
The missiles carried by the Su-25 are capable of targeting an object at a 3-5-kilometer (1-3 mile) distance, and to an altitude of 7,000 meters (23,000 feet), the source stressed. “With jet’s raised nose, it is not a problem to fix a target and launch a missile. The flying range of this missile is over 10 kilometers,” according to the airbase worker.
He further said that the missile is capable of hitting a plane fuselage, whether directly or from a distance of 500 meters. The density of the objects which hit the MH17 was very high, and these findings did not exclude the downing of the plane by a missile. He says there was such a missile: It explodes and its shrapnel punctures the plane, and after that, the missile warhead strikes it.
The Malaysian Airlines Flight MH-17 crashed on July 17 in the Donetsk region, as it was flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. All 298 people on board were killed. Two Kiev air traffic controllers responsible for diverting the plane into the war zone have allegedly fled Ukraine and they remain in hiding.
