At July 17, 2019 it has been five years ago MH17 was shot down by a BUK missile. The Joint Investigation Team concluded the BUK TELAR anti-aircraft system which launched the missile belonged to the Russian armed forces.

For many media the 5th anniversary is a good moment to bring stories about MH17.

Also alternative media will present stories. Yana Yerlashova, a former RT (funded by Kremlin) journalist found in  Dutch blogger Max van der Werff (aka “Kremlin troll”) a usefull help to make a documentary on MH17. Based on their reputation and the promotional video they published the documentary will be full of disinformation. See my previous blogs on this notorious couple here.

To get an impression of the intentions of the couple, the table below shows an overview of the nonsense, lies, disinformation spread by Van der Werff and Yerlashova.

This table will be updated frequently and is not even complete.
