Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta at June 5, 2019 published an article about the route of the Russian Army convoy that took BUK 332 (MH17 murder weapon)  from its base in Kursk to Millerovo (June 23-25) close to the Russian/Ukraine border. The newspaper acquired official documents which confirm the route which was reported by JIT and Bellingcat. One of the documents states 170+ soldiers (including 53rd Brigade commander Sergei Muchkaev) were on the Millerovo base. And on July 15, two days before the Boeing tragedy, they received dry rations for 5 days.

Ukraine Union has an english summary of the article.

Below a video

 

The map shown below has an interesting detail. It suggests the Buk left Eastern Ukraine via the southern border towards the Russian village Matveyev Kurgan.

This is contrary to what JIT presented in its 2016 pressconference.  Also Ukraine always suggested the Buk after shooting down MH17 left towards to north direction Luhansk. The famous photo showing the Buk Telar missing a missile was made near Luhansk.

The text in the red box is:

“Place of alleged border crossing by the Buk on the way back from Snezhnoye to Russia via Matveyev Kurgan”

This is the video by JIT showing the route of the Buk back to Russia.

    Translation of the selected “Place of alleged border crossing by the Buk on the way back from Snezhnoye to Russia via Matveyev Kurgan”

    • It is from their old unreliable source. Actually it might be seen moving in the opposite direction, or it was another hardware.

      “Around 20.00. July 17, after the crash of “Boeing”, “Buk” was seen on the highway leading from Snizhne in the direction of Matveyev Kurgan, Rostov region. On the night of 17th to 18th, the unit was transferred across the border.”

      • Indeed. JIT showed in the pressconference the route to Russia via Debaltseve and Luhansk. One of the sources was a separatist the JIT video showed.

      • I have nothing to comment. Publication of old, unverified materials at the time, as there is data from the official investigation already over 2.5 years, for me is an indicator of the level of professionalism of the authors of the article.

  2. Routes “Buk” in the reports of JIT and in the claim of Ukraine to the international court of the United Nations differ
