Ukraine journalists of the program ‘Donbass Realities’ (Донбасc.Реалии) did an investigation into Sergey Nikolaevich Dubinsky, a Russian national who is a suspect of transporting the Russian armed forces BUK TELAR into Easter Ukraine. This BUK TELAR according the Joint Investigation Team shot a surface to air missile at flight MH17, killing all 298 people on board the aircraft.
Novaya Gazeta found out the voice of a tapped telephone conversation about the transport of the BUK matches the voice of a Russian veteran named Sergey Dubinsky. Dubinsky now lives in Russia near the city of Rostov, close to Ukraine.
Journalists of ‘Donbass Realities’ found out Dubinsky lived in a village called Velyka Novosilka in Eastern Ukraine before the war stated. Earlier Dutch journalist Gert-Jan Dennekamp visited this village. The mother of Dubinsky lived here. After his active military carreer Dubinsky returned to live in this village. This was around 2010.

Roman confirms his brother served the Russian army and helped the separatists in Eastern Ukraine. Roman called his brother after the MH17 shotdown. Sergey Dubinsky stated Ukraine was responsible for the downing. “It was a provocation by Kiev”.
Roman Dubinsky was asked by the journalists to listen to the tapped telephone conversation. He was very sure the voice belongs to his brother.
