At September 28 the Joint Investigation Team made public the first results of the criminal investigation into the downing of MH17. JIT made clear a BUK TELAR crossed the border in the early morning of July 17 and went via Donetsk to Pervomaiske.
Bellingcat reported that based on different characteristics of the BUK like leftovers of removed white paint and connection of cables, the BUK must be number 332 of Russia’s 53rd Anti-Aircraft Missile Brigade of Kursk.
A new photo made public at September 28 by JIT shows the righthand side of the BUK in much more detail than previous public photos. There are very clear similarities between the BUK seen on a video while inside Russia being transported to the Ukraine border, and this new photo. The new photo was made in Torez and handed over to JIT.
This is a still of the JIT video showing the new photos of the righthand side.
At September 30 JIT also published the video.
Left the photo made of BUK 332 in Torez. Right a photo made of a video while BUK 332 was enroute in Russia.
There can be no doubt Russia provided BUK TELAR 332 to the separatists to enable the separatists to destroy fighter aircraft and transport aircraft flying at altitudes above the maximum reach of MANPADS.by
