Bellingcat обвинил Россию в распространении фейков относительно МН17

Founder of the international expert and the journalistic group Bellingcat Eliot Higgins said that the findings of the Russian Ministry of defense regarding the crash of a passenger Boeing of flight MH17 absurd.

The Russian defense Ministry on 17 September stated that the video used the Joint investigation team as evidence of the involvement of Russian air defense missile system Buk to the destruction of MH17, rigged. In Russia said that the video movement SAM Beech on the territory of Ukraine is "animation, made on the basis of a single photograph."

According to the representative of Bellingcat, the Russian military did not realize that the movement of Beech, caught on video, was also captured by satellite.

"The best part of the press conference at the Ministry of defense of Russia on the MH17 was that they introduced this really badly done video as evidence of how easy it is to fake videos with Beech", – said Higgins.

In addition, according to him, the Russian Ministry used the error in photography JIT to falsely accuse them of falsifying the frame.

Higgins added that the Bellingcat team intends to publish a new report on the MH17 until the end of September.

We will remind that on September 17, Russia announced another fake, according to which the Buk SAM missile that brought down MH17, allegedly belonged to Ukraine, and an international investigation was "fake". In the defense Ministry claim that he learned about it "on the basis of the side rooms of the missile."

The defense Ministers of Ukraine and the UK have already called the fake statements of Russia about Ukraine's involvement in the destruction of MH17 and another example of Russian disinformation.

As you know, the Boeing 777 Malaysia Airlines flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur that crashed on 17 July 2014 in Donetsk region after it was hit by a missile "earth-air". All 298 people on Board were killed.

At the end of December last year, British intelligence directly stated that Russia was responsible for the collapse of the "Boeing" as the summer of 2014 the Russian military has delivered to the Donbass SAM "Buk", from which the plane was shot down.
