BBC Claims MH17 Was Shot Down By Ukrainian Fighter Jet

BBC says MH17 was shot down by Ukrainian fighter jet in new documentary

A new BBC documentary has claimed that Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 may have been shot down by a Ukrainian fighter jet -and not as a result of a Russian missile as claimed by the mainstream media. 

On BBC Two show, ‘The Conspiracy Files: Who Shot Down MH17?‘, witnesses discuss seeing the aircraft being shot down by a fighter jet which subsequently led to 298 passengers and crew losing their lives as they travelled from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. reports:

The web page for the documentary states: “There are eyewitness accounts of other aircraft seen flying next to MH17 close to impact.

“To further fuel the conspiracies, Russia and Ukraine blame each other but both countries are unable to provide all the critical radar data from that day.

“Family members do not trust the official explanations and there is a long way to go to bring about justice for the victims. This programme tracks down eye witnesses, and speaks with secret intelligence sources to try to sort fact from fiction.”

According to the Daily Express, Natasha Beronina said: “It was summer, harvest time. We heard a bang. At first we saw black smoke and two planes, little ones like silver toys.

“One flew straight on and the other one turned round when the bang happened and flew back from where it had come.”

The documentary also explores the possibility that the downing of the jet was a CIA plot to pin the blame on Russia.

Earlier this month police arrested a man on suspicion of trying to assassinate the chief forensics officer in the probe into the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17.

Ukraine’s most senior forensic scientists Oleksandr Ruvin was shot late last year and authorities believe the shooting was related to his role in the investigation.

In statement, the Ukrainian prosecutor’s office said it would hold a briefing later today “regarding the arrest of the killer who attempted to murder the chief expert on the case of the downed Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777”.

Mr Ruvin was shot in the leg but recovered in hospital.

The October report raised questions about a Russian cover-up in which fragments of shrapnel were deliberately removed from the body of the pilot.

By the time Dutch investigators – who were handling the investigation as 189 of the victims were Dutch – were granted access to the body of the pilot, the body had already “undergone an external and internal examination to remove foreign objects”.

In the month leading up to the tragedy, 16 military helicopters and aeroplanes were shot down as the conflict between separatists and Ukrainian authorities itensified.

At the time, Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov claimed the Dutch Safety Board’s report is biased.

It is believed further evidence about the location the missile was fired from is being prepared for publication later this year.

    Of course it was shot down by UA fighter jets. All evidence are in that direction but Western MSM propaganda paid by Washington would not allow this to happen. But John Kerry NEVER came up with US evidence to the version that ‘Russian’ shot down MH 17 with surface-to-air-missiles (BUK). On top of that NOBODY had seen ANY oxygen stream -associated with missiles – on this clear afternoon. So slowly we come to the conclusion that 298 innocent people were shot down by US ally Ukraine and NOT Russia = US conspiracy AGAIN to DEMONIZE Russia and its President Putin. And then the logic WHAT benefit would Russia and/or Donbass freedom fighters have to shoot down a commercial airliner? It is just another US conspiracy to isolate Russia and to drive a wedge between Europe and Russia. Cooperation between Europe and Russia is what Washington fears the most since it would isolate USA even more. Another US approach to prevent US isolation are Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) while US also has a similar agreement in the Pacific Region called Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). USA want to keep its imperialistic dreams alive through open military actions (bombing sovereign nations like Iraq, Syria, Libya) and CIA cover-ups to destabilize nations like Egypt, Hong Kong, Ukraine and so on. The danger for Europe is NOT from the East but from the USA with 900 foreign military bases and having f.e. 67.000 US troops and 220 nuclear bombs in Europe alone of which people living there don’t know. All of this is managed from Washington WITHOUT European governments have ANY influence on the use of this destructive military power.
