Valentyn Nalyvaichenko, former head of Ukraine’s Security Service (SBU), at the PutinCon conference told that the BUK TELAR which downed MH17, killing 298 people, was operated by a Russian crew.
In September 2016, the Joint Investigation Team which is responsible for the criminal investigation, made public it has strong evidence the BUK TELAR was brought in from Russia, and transported back to Russia after the downing.
Nalyvaichenko also mentioned two names of persons identified by SBU as responsible for the downing; Russian national Igor Girkin and Ukraine national Igor Plotnitsky. Dutch TV program ZEMBLA earlier in March showed footage of an interview with Nalyvaichenko. In this interview four names of suspects were mentioned.
At 5:44 in the video recording of the speech by Nalyvaichenko, he tells that suspects should be prosecuted in an Ukrainian court. That is a remarkable statement as the countries part of the Joint Investigation Team agreed on a court case in The Hague, the Netherlands. He repeats ‘Ukrainian court’ at 6:34 into the video.
Nalyvaichenko in the end of the presentation states Ukraine should be member of NATO.
