Russian anti-aircraft missile systems “Buk”, contrary to the main version of Western experts, simply could not hit a Malaysian airliner in the sky over the Donbass.
Journalist Max Van der Verff said this in his blog, referring to the legal department of the Netherlands Military Intelligence and Security Service.
According to a letter addressed to the country’s prosecutor’s office, the MH17 flight was flying outside the reach of the Buk SAM system, which was in the region at the time, both Russian and Ukrainian. The document contains a table showing the coordinates of eleven missile systems of the two States. The distance from all the missile systems to the place where the plane crash occurred varies from 66 to 515 kilometers, while the range of these air defence systems is about 42 kilometers.
“It becomes clear from the table that the MH17 flight was flying outside the range of all installed and operating Ukrainian and Russian locations where the 9K37M1 Buk-M1 systems were deployed”. – the letter says.
It is also noteworthy that the letter is dated 21 September 2016. Thus, we can say that just a week before the press conference of the so-called investigation group, which took place on 28 September, the experts did not even have real confirmation that the Russian Buk SAM system allegedly crossed the border.
In turn, the author of the publication called “amazing” the way Western experts manipulated the information, claiming that they allegedly had information about the location of Russian air defense systems, but did not say a word about the Ukrainian ones, assuming in absentia that all of them did not leave military bases.
“Can we say that Ukraine has kept almost all of its Buk systems on its bases and never during the ‘anti-terrorist operation’ has it moved its air defense assets outside its bases?”, – Van der Werff asks.
