Russian Brass Sez the Ukraine Received No New Buk Missiles Since 1991

Note well that Russia, a legitimate state actor, wasn’t part of this “investigation”. On the other hand, the illegitimate and illegal American-installed Ukrainian junta was part of it. That means that the “findings” were American-manufactured rubbish. After all, the Yanks do like sabotaging airliners, don’t they?

On Friday, the Minoborony Rossii said in an official statement:

Since the moment the USSR ceased to exist in 1991 and the split of the military equipment that followed, the Ukraine, which then obtained about 20 Buk SAM battalions, hasn’t received a single new air defence missile.

On 24 May, the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) formed by Australia, Belgium, Malaysia, the Netherlands, and the Ukraine published an interim report of its probe into the MH17 disaster over Ukraine in 2014. The investigators claimed that the launcher that fired the missile might have been from Russia’s 53 Air Defence Brigade stationed near Kursk. The Minoborony Rossii dismissed all JIT charges to this effect, saying that not a single air defence system of the Russian forces ever crossed the Russian-Ukrainian border. It also stated that it provided exhaustive evidence to the Dutch authorities concerned to prove unequivocally that Ukrainian Buk crews were responsible for shooting down the passenger plane.
