Video by Nemtsov and Martynyuk: Who Shot Down MH17 (As Revealed by Pro-Kremlin Sources)?

More

9 August 2014 – As Russian media continues to spew propaganda putting the blame for the MH17 tragedy on Ukraine, dissenting voices within Russia still can be heard. In this video Russian opposition activists Boris Nemtsov and Leonid Martynyuk dissect various pro-Kremlin media reports and show how they reveal the real culprits behind the deaths of almost 300 innocent civilians.

This is not their first contribution to the anti-propaganda effort. In July Nemtsov and Martynyuk produced a short film “The Warmonger,” collecting proof of Putin’s direct involvement in the Ukrainian conflict. Nemtsov, who had served a vice-prime minister and a governor in the 90’s, has been an outspoken critic of Putin’s policies, preparing, publishing and distributing reports on the regime’s corruption, Putin’s lavish lifestyle and, most recently, theft and embezzling rampant within Sochi’s 2014 Winter Olympics construction projects.
