The Crimea branch of Radio Free Europe at July 14 2016 published an online article with some statements of Igor Romanenko, an Ukrainian military expert, deputy chief of the General Staff of the ex-VSU General.
The same story was published at July 14 at this website.
The statements made are not new. At September 2015 the exact same story was published here.
- MH17 was shot down by a BUK-M1 using a missile which belongs to a BUK-M1-2. This type of missile is not in use by Ukraine
- residue of the BUK-M1-2 missile chemicals were found at the crashsite
- The Joint Investigation Team obtained a warhead. The chemicals of the explosives matches those found at the crashsite.
- the alleged launch location south of Snizhne is indeed the location were the BUK missile was launched from. Soil samples confirmed that.
- MH17 was shot down by mistake. A spy working at an airport informed the separatists that an Antonov 26 was scheduled to fly towards the Ukraine-Russian border. The intention was to shot down the Antonov. Ukraine secret service intercepted the message of the spy and cancelled the Antonov flight. However the separatists were not aware of the cancellation.
Radio Free Europe is a US-state funded broadcasting organization that provides news, information, and analysis to countries in Eastern Europe, Central Asia and the Middle East “where the free flow of information is either banned by government authorities or not fully developed”. RFE/RL is a 501(c) corporation that receives U.S. government funding and is supervised by the Broadcasting Board of Governors, an agency overseeing all U.S. federal government international broadcasting services.
It is remarkable the same story as published in 2015 is now recycled by a US sponsored media organization.by
