Dutch investigative program ZEMBLA at March 7 2018 announced the Joint Investigation Team knows the names of 7 suspects of the downing of MH17.
At March 7 ZEMBLA broadcasts a tv program about the criminal investigation into the downing of MH17 and the legal ways to get justice for the next of kin. The names of the suspects are identified by the Ukraine Secret Service SBU.
Names of suspects are Igor Girkin, Sergey Dubinsky and Nikolai Tkachev. Zembla talked to the head of the SBU at the time MH17 was downed, Valentyn Nalyvaichenko. Zembla also talked to the head of the Ukraine team investigating MH17, Vasyl Vovk.
The website of ZEMBLA reports.
They say that during a videoconference in June 2015 at the Dutch embassy in Kiev, a proposal was made to the JIT to prosecute a group of seven people, who played a leading role in the downing of MH17. It is not about the crew of the BUK rocket installation, but about those who commanded the armed uprising and played a logistical role in bringing in the BUK installation from Russia.
Valentyn Nalyvaichenko says in ZEMBLA:
“We have conducted criminal investigations into war crimes committed by, among others, Girkin, Plotnitsky, Dubinsky, Tkachev and the head of the Russian border guard, as well as MH17.We have identified the perpetrators, we know who they are and the JIT knows all the names.”
Igor Girkin was the leader of Russian separatist forces in eastern Ukraine. A total of 25 surviving relatives, including 10 Dutch, took part in a lawsuit filed against Igor Girkin. The American court ruled that each surviving relative in the lawsuit is entitled to 20 million dollars in compensation.
Igor Plotnitsky (Igor Venediktovich) is the former leader of the self-proclaimed “Luhansk People’s Republic” (“LPR”) . Ukraine media Union reports he was detained by Russian security forces and is not allowed to leave Moscow.
Sergey “Khmuryi” Dubinsky is likely a key–or perhaps even the key–figure in organizing the transport of Buk 332 from Donetsk to a field south of Snizhne on the day of the tragedy, Bellingcat reports.
Russian Colonel General Nikolai Fedorovich Tkachev, codename Delfin, was likely also involved in the transport of the BUK TELAR surface to air missile system which downed MH17.
