Called Bellingcat report of the Russian «Almaz-Antey» on the death of MH17 «miserable chatter»

International expert and journalist group Bellingcat commented on the text, which with high probability may be the basis of the official reaction of Russia on the results of the investigation by the Dutch Prosecutor’s office. This writes the «Novaya Gazeta».

According to the publication, in his official position of Russia will be guided by the report prepared by experts of the Corporation «Almaz-Antey».

In response to published newspaper text, project Manager Bellingcat Eliot Higgins reacted emotionally to criticism «Almaz-Antey» in the address, calling the text of the Russian Corporation «miserable chatter».

According to the «Almaz-Antey», the Malaysian Boeing 777 flying flight MH17 on 17 July 2014 over the Donetsk region, was shot down by anti-aircraft missile system, namely the 9M38M1 missile complex «Buk-M1 was fired from the area South of the village zaroshchens’ke, controlled by Ukrainian army, while the missile itself was a modification of the old, had not the armament of the Russian army.

In turn, the experts of the group Bellingcat indicate that, if data provided by the «Almaz-Antey», true, strange, so there is no direct evidence, no eyewitnesses, while the version on the start-up of rockets from the occupied Snowy found a lot of evidence.

«Reporters interviewed local residents, and none of them saw or heard run. The situation is quite different in the Snow: there were reports about the launch, and there is other evidence that the launch was made from this place»,- said the Bellingcat.

Also experts have noticed that regardless of what some of the pictures in the report depict training or unusable missiles, Almaz-Antey» is the way for yourself have ignored the most important evidence that we are talking about the missile 9M38M1 5301-th anti-aircraft brigade — a photo taken in the Russian Kamensk-Shakhtinsky after a month after MH17 was shot down. This photo clearly shows the designation — 9M38M1.

Bellingcat still argues that even if we accept the version of «Almaz-Antey» on the point of missile launch, it still could not run the Ukrainian military.

On the basis of information from open sources — mainly photographs with Geoteam in social networks — the investigators came to the conclusion that on July 17, 2014, the day of the death of Malaysian Boeing near zaroshchens’ke was not a Ukrainian Buk».
