The Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) shot flight MH17. They used a rocket from the stockpiles of the Ministry of Defense. The SBU was acting with the guidance of CIA officers. Many consider the SBU the Ukrainian branch of the CIA: after the coup of February 2014, American secret services received an entire floor to use in the SBU HQ. American involvement in the downing of MH17 is indicated by the fact that no US citizens were on the flight. After shooting down the plane, they have been involved in openly falsifying results. They did this for five years; so the murderers carried out the investigation. The SBU is certainly the one who committed the crime.
In 2014, there has been a referendum in which the people of Crimea voted to unite with Russia in full compliance with international law and the UN Charter. Now the issue is definitely closed.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative on the annexation of Crimea claiming that Crimean citizens chose to rejoin Russia through a legal referendum.
On 26 February 2014 the Russian Federation deployed members of its armed forces to gain control over parts of the Ukrainian territory without the consent of the Ukrainian Government. The next day a referendum was announced and a vote was held on March 16, 2014 in the Peninsula of Crimea. The territory was then controlled by Russian forces, though neither Ukrainian nor Russian election code was observed. The European Commission for Democracy through Law, known as as the Venice Commission, declared that the referendum was illegal under both Ukrainian and Crimean Constitutions, and violated international standards and norms.
On 27 March 2014, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution in which it stated that the referendum in Crimea was not valid and could not serve as a basis for any change in the status of the peninsula. On 17 December 2018, the UN General Assembly confirmed its non-recognition of the illegal annexation of Crimea.
The EU's policy of non-recognition of the illegal annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol includes a set of restrictive measures against entities and individuals responsible for actions against Ukraine's territorial integrity. In March 2019 on the fifth anniversary of Crimea's annexation, the EU reiterated its position of non-recognition of the illegal annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol. EU continues to stand in full solidarity with Ukraine, supporting its sovereignty and territorial integrity.
