Kremlin made another lie about its military presence in Eastern Ukraine. This lie is one in an extreme long list of lies by Kremlin on MH17. See my posts herehere,  here,  herehere here and here.

This lie was done by the Russian Mission to the United Nations. In a Tweet dated July 17, 2018 the Russian mission stated that “not a single anti-aircraft missile system of Russian Armed Forces has ever crossed the Russia-Ukraine border.

A clear lie!

First of all the BUK that shot down MH17 belonged to the Russia’s  53rd Anti-aircraft Missile Brigade, based in the southern city of Kursk. Joint Investigation Team reported this in May 24, 2018.

Russia denies and states only Ukraine used to type of BUK-missile which downed MH17.

But there can be no doubt about the SA-22 Pantsir system.

At February 2015 the UK Delegation to NATO send a Tweet showing several photos of a Russian Panstir-S1 (SA-22) which locations were geolocated to Eastern Ukraine. The SA-22 is not in use by Ukraine Armed Forces. So it  100% belongs to the  Russian Armed Forces. The SA-22 is “a combined short to medium range surface-to-air missile and anti-aircraft artillery weapon system produced by KBP of Tula, Russia”

In May 2015 Bellingcat published an article which geolocated the various videos of a Pantsir.

  • In early 2015 a Pantsir was driving in separatist controlled Luhansk
  • Also early 2015 a Pantsir was driving in separatist controlled Makeevka.
