24 Comments on News on MH17 in 2016

    • [Their findings, especially at parts 5.2 and 5.3 of Appendix T, say that there was no evidence that the separatists had possession of powerful anti-aircraft systems such as BUK missiles. Neither was there any evidence that they had the training necessary to fire such systems. Nor was there any evidence that the separatists had any intention of shooting down a civilian airliner. The weaponry they did have at their disposal was incapable of operating at the altitude that MH17 was flying.]

      Elena Kolenkina:

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gENJhZwfEfc&list=LLZ3GTMiT5A5cyMntaf6Nh6w&index=4

      – Elena says SU-25’s under the cover of civilian aircraft dived down, dropped their bombs and rose again in hiding, so they could not be touched by the separatists:

      [(1:32/2:14) This means it was a provocation; they wanted the self-defense force to shoot down an airliner so that the militias can be declared to be terrorists who shoot down airlines. Hundreds of passengers would have died; it would have been a huge catastrophy.]

      – But suppose the separatists only had Manpads to 3.5 km at their disposal while airliners flew about 10 km altitude. Then they had no story and no reason to put this video on YouTube. This means separatists already on June 18th IMPLICITLY ADMITTED the possession of Pantsirs, the little brother of the BUK with an altitude range of 15 km.

      [The interim findings of the DSB report pointed to a BUK missile with a 9N314M warhead being the cause of the aircraft’s high altitude disintegration. As noted, there is significant doubt as to the accuracy of the DSB’s conclusion. Mr Donoghoe’s evidence makes it clear that in order to obtain conclusive criminal evidence, to a standard that would support a criminal prosecution, the Dutch criminal investigation needed to exclude other possible scenarios. These other scenarios necessarily includes investigating exactly what type of BUK missile was used (if that is proven), as well as air-to-air missiles.]

      The Dutch criminal investigation needs to include proof of (the two) bowties as a conditional probability. Without proof bowties came through the cockpit hull or the windshields they will have no case.

      [He also said, without elaboration, that certain ‘persons of interest’ had been identified. Cross-examination may have been able to provide some elaboration on that enigmatic Police-speak, without jeopardizing the integrity of the criminal investigation and the rights of the suspects.]

      Witnesses deliver facts from second hand. Especially, when Internet intelligence comes from the SBU or Bellingcat. Indeed delaying the process as long as possible is the only option where time heals all wounds.

      [As the Americans refused to release that data to the DSB inquiry, the criminal investigation is likely to be the same sorry farce as the Melbourne Coronial Inquiry. A golden opportunity go inform the public and bring closure to the victim’s families has been sacrificed, yet again, on the altar of political expediency.]

      Not quite, DSB has seen the American results and concluded these correspond to their own opinion. But now we do not know to what extent the DSB report has been affected by American information. And because DSB is not allowed to answer this questions, this led to demise of the freedom of expression of DSB in its own report. This is one of the reasons why results cannot be trusted.

    Where did they say this? And what “conclusion” did it correspond to?
    That all sounds a bit vague to me

    • After the presentation there has been an interview with Mr. Tjibbe Joustra in which he told to be informed about classified information about the downing of MH17. But this confession is not written into the report:

      R: This also? (Allegations of Secretary of State John Kerry about the downing of MH17)

      J: De beelden die wij gezien hebben en staatsgeheim zijn daar ben ik ook aan gebonden en daarvan ga ik niet zeggen wat daar precies op te zien was.
      J: The images we have seen and are classified; since I am bound to them I’m not going to say what was there to see exactly.

      R: De leider van het DSB onderzoek zei vorig jaar dat het een fabeltje was, dat het een misverstand was dat die beelden er zouden zijn.
      R: The leader of the DSB study said last year that it was a myth, that it was a misconception that those images would exist.

      J: Wij hebben qua beelden gezien wat wij nodig hadden, dat hebben we gedaan via de inlichtingendiensten, daarbij is de afspraak geweest dat ikzelf en een ander lid van de Raad (OVV; DSB) die beelden zagen, dat we de resultaten kunnen verwerken in onze rapporten, maar dat wij niet ingaan op wat wij precies hebben gezien.
      J: We have seen pictures in terms of what we needed, by the intelligence services (USA), here the deal was that myself and another member of the Board (OVV; DSB) who saw images, that we can process the results in our reports, but we will not go into what we have seen exactly.

      R: Maar u hebt materiaal gezien?
      R: But you’ve seen material?

      J: Wij hebben materiaal gezien wat voor ons voldoende bevestigde wat er aan de hand was.
      J: We have seen material which confirmed for us sufficiently what was going on.

      R: Was daar ook te zien de locatie van de lancering?
      R: Was there to see the location of the launch too?

      J: Dat is geheime informatie dus ik ga ook niet in op de inhoud van die informatie in.
      J: That’s classified information so I will not go into the content of that information.

  2. Denis Cashcov // January 8, 2016 at 12:27 am // Reply

    So they can’t tell us the launch location even though they say they know where it is. This is all very strange. The launch location would tell the world what it is waiting to hear, but they will keep that a secret?

    Thank you very much for that translation.

      They did not tell they know the launch location. But if they know they will have informed JIT, definitely, so we can expect something from JIT. Then JIT must come with some form of proof at the trial.

      Hundreds of people are killed and it looks like DSB plays hide and seek. It is my opinion this kind of investigation morally never can accept classified information. This is my conclusion:

    The ongoing investigation into the knock down of an IL-76 on June 14/2014 is very telling about the ATO structure.
    There were so many false or unconfirmed information inside the SBU that they could not separate the wheat from the chaff.

    The shooting down of the IL-76 led to the dismissal of SBU-chief Valentyn Nalyvaichenko.

    The aircraft was reported to have been carrying 40 paratroopers of the 25th Separate Dnipropetrovsk Airborne Brigade in addition to its crew. They may have thoughts of revenge.

    Here are three links :
    http://www.unian.info/society/1239567-media-muzhenko-ignored-info-on-militants-plans-to-shoot-down-il-76.html

    http://uatoday.tv/society/ukrainian-army-chief-ignored-warnings-before-militants-downed-military-transport-plane-il-76-media-573547.html

    And the main source (including pictures of documents) :
    http://vlada.io/muzhenko-znal-o-tom-chto-boeviki-sobirayutsya-sbivat-il-76-no-vse-ravno-otpravil-ego-v-lugansk/

    Quotations (some by google translation russian-english) :

    Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Viktor Muzhenko was provided information that the militants were preparing to shoot down Ukrainian military transport planes taking off in Luhansk on June 13, 2014, but still ordered their deployment by air to Luhansk airport…

    … the ATO headquarters at the SBU sent two reports to Muzhenko, stating that two groups of militants armed with MANPADs were moving from the city of Luhansk for Luhansk airport to shoot down all the planes landing and taking off.

    … he received reports on the operational situation in the Donbas conflict zone three times a day. However, according to the chief of staff, the information they contained was often false or unverified…

    “I note that the information contained in these reports, containing 90% of statements that do not correspond to reality, they were misinformation. As a rule, this information could not be used during the anti-terrorist operation, as it did not contain any specifics, there was no information about the source of this information, which did not allow to draw a conclusion about its authenticity. Relevant reports were sent to me immediately after receipt, but I did not always have the opportunity to handle such reference at the time of “, said Muzhenko.

    “There is no clear algorithm of actions in the preparation of such information, and the regulations do not specify what measures had to be taken by Nazarov VM upon receipt of such information. Not a single document was defined when it has to check out the FAQ, which contained this information,” – said Muzhenko.

    “Possession of such information had no reason to cancel the flight of aircraft, if the presence of such information would have canceled all scheduled operations and movements of troops, our troops will not be moved from the place, because such information came very much”, the general added.
    If all what Muzhenko says really is true, it is evident that for the deaths of paratroopers under the Lugansk no one will be punished as formal, because neighter Muzhenko nor Nazarov did violate any laws and regulations, in the absence thereof. As quoted above the command was well aware of the plans of militants, but no document obliged him to respond to the information.

    The documents were made public by defense ministry employees to journalists, on condition of anonymity. They say Muzhenko should be held accountable for the neglect of duty, which resulted in the death of 40 paratroopers and nine flight crew.

    • Liane thanks for the information.

      If they already lost the city of Luhansk and only were still in power in Luhansk airport, knowing ‘militants’ generally are armed with MANPADs and (at least) Pantsirs (Elena Kolinkina at YouTube, June 18, 2014), then the risk for Ukrainian military planes landing at the airport, to be shot down was very obvious.

      [- But suppose the separatists only had Manpads to 3.5 km at their disposal while airliners flew about 10 km altitude. Then they had no story and no reason to put this video on YouTube. Which means separatists already on June 18th IMPLICITLY ADMITTED the possession of Pantsirs, the little brother of the BUK with an altitude range of 15 km.]

      That’s why Viktor Mushenko needed ‘no clear algorithm of actions in the preparation of such information, and regulations which specify what measures have to be taken upon receipt of such information.’ He also needed no briefings for clarification.

      This kind of reasoning is too simple as even a child will understand the clue. This means it is all lies and it will not help us to find the perpetrators of MH17.

      What we learn the Ukrainian army is not a sharp defined entity, but a constellation of different groups fighting each other with silly arguments. This only increases the number of degrees of freedom to develop scenarios for the shooting down of MH17 starting on the Ukrainian side.

  4. Robert Parry
    “One of the mysteries of the MH-17 case has become why the United States – after asserting that it possessed information implicating ethnic Russian rebels and the Russian government – has failed to make the data public or apparently even share it with Dutch investigators who are leading the inquiry into how the plane was shot down and who was responsible.”

    STRANGE COINCIDENCES:
    1. How was it possible that Geen Peil, Geen Stijl got that far to force referendum. (Rumours are that Russia financed this operation) Articles about this in Dutch Newspapers.
    2. MH-17 (shot down by Russians). Still discussions about it, who did it where are radar images.
    3. Paintings robbed in Dutch Westfries Museum 10 years ago suddenly appear in Ukraine.
    CONCLUSION:
    All above points are just political attacks against Ukraine by Russia to discredit Ukraine and convince people in Europe not to support Ukraine.

    Don´t miss this :
    “Netherlands to host hearings on MH17 investigation, Russian troops in Donbas
    The session will be held at the Dutch Parliament on March 31
    The parliamentary website reported this on Wednesday. In particular, the audience will listen to the report by Elliott Higgins, representative of Bellingcat, an independent agency focusing on investigations. As is known, it was the Bellingcat that conducted large-scale investigation of the MH17 tragedy. Another report will be presented by Maksymilian Czuperski, member of the Atlantic Council; he will focus on Russia’s military presence in Donbas.
    The reports will be delivered shortly before the nationwide plebiscite, scheduled in the Netherlands for April 6. During the poll, the Dutch are to either support or decline the idea to ratify the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement. If they vote “no”, the Dutch Government will respect their decision and it will not ratify the document, local MPs noted. For months, Ukraine and some of Dutch NGOs have been leading a large-scale campaign to promote Ukraine in the Netherlands.”

    The battle is not to establish the truth but to control public perception. The facts about MH17 are caught in the crossfire.

  8. Mr.Bushkin // June 7, 2016 at 11:32 am // Reply

    Well, even if it did not make it into western news, the manufacturer of the Buk system has concluded that MH17 has probably been hit by a 9M38 missile (without bowties) fired from Zaroshenske and not by a 9M38M1 (with bowties) fired from Snizhne after conducting field experiments a while ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rG0Bi_wf7JM

  9. http://johnhelmer.net/?p=15859

    “President Barack Obama (lead image, left) and his advisors (right) spent at least a week, and as much as three weeks, planning to send up to 9,000 combat troops into eastern Ukraine, on the border with Russia, following the shoot-down of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 two years ago. The scheme, which was to have involved Dutch and Australian army units, with German ground and US air support, plus NATO direction, has inadvertently leaked from the publication of a report this week by a former Australian Army captain.

    The military plan, according to James Brown, now head of research at the US Studies Centre of the University of Sydney, “would have consumed the bulk of the Australian Army.” Captain Brown also claims “planning for these military options consumed Australia’s intelligence agencies. The National Security Committee of [the Australian ministerial] Cabinet met every day for more than three weeks , and staff and agencies produced a frenzied stream of briefings on Ukraine, Russia and the intentions of [President] Vladimir Putin.”

    According to Dutch sources, the military plan of attack was aborted when Germany refused to participate directly, or allow its bases and airspace to be used.”

    • Johnhelmer is a propaganda dude, so most likely he again wrote bulls*t.
      During the weeks after MH17 crash & observed how crash site was tampered day after day and felt bad for the victims. I wished someone had sent there strong military force to secure the site.

      In future there should be some international way to handle these kind of crisis better.
