January 10 – The Boeing passanger plane of Malaysian Airlines, was shot down by pro-Russian fighters in summer 2014; the shot which led to the catastrophe was fired by a zenith-rocket complex of BUK M1, which was brought from Russian Kursk. This is verified by the results of the investigation carried out by the organization of journalistic investigations CORRECT! V.
According to the data of the journalists, the position from which the Boeing was being fired upon, was delivered by the members of the 53rd zenith-rocket brigade, with the goal of providing protection to the Russian tank divisions, who were fighting on Ukrainian territory without their codes of identification.
The data of the British reconnaissance team Bellingcat.com indicate that on the day of of the Boeing catastrophe – July 17th – the artillery BUK traveled on the Donetsk Route No. 21, leaving Donetsk around 11 in the morning: “It is being transported on a tractor platform with a white cabin – it was reported in the investigation. The Bellingcat reserchers reached the conclusion that the самохідна self-propelling fire addition with the identification numbers 3 * 2, photographed in June amid the armed convoy, heading from Kursk in the direction of the Ukrainian border, was the same BUK which was photographed by Paris Match in Eastern Ukraine.
The photographer of the French magazine Paris Match took pictures of the moving automobile. He was close and caught the side part of the BUK – its identification number and other identity signs carelessly painted over. On the truck platform company with the BUK, there was a telephone number. It belongs to a company in Donetsk which leases automobiles. The owner of the company later informed that his machine was stolen in June by pro-Russian separatists,” – it was reported in the investigation.
In answer to the question of who could have launched the rocket of BUK, all the experts, including among them former soldiers of the 53-rd brigade PPO in Kursk, agree that the seperatists were not able to use the BUK. “There is no doubt that the order to shoot at MN 17 was given by a Russian officer,” summarize the authors of the investigation.
He casts a long shadow over globe. Russian leader Vladimir Putin has outlasted three American presidents and is on track to stay in power until 2024. His incursions in Georgia, the Crimea and Ukraine have rattled the West, while his crackdowns inside Russia have riled his democratic opponents.
But a joint investigation by the fifth estate and PBS’ Frontline reveals an even darker side to one of the most powerful leaders in the world: Allegations of criminal activity dating as far back as his early days as a top official in St. Petersburg; ties to organized crime and money-laundering activities; and a secret personal fortune said to be in the billions.
“Putin’s Long Shadow” also raises disturbing questions about the role the Russian security services played in four apartment building bombings in Moscow and other cities in 1999 that killed nearly 300 people – a tragedy Putin blamed on terrorists and used to cement his power.
Host Gillian Findlay talks to a senior police officer who tried to arrest Putin on corruption charges; an investigator who was jailed for asking too many questions about the apartment bombings; and Russian businessmen who detail the levels of corruption and collusion.
