Summary

Leaked internal documents from the Ukrainian Secret Service (SBU) show that SBU tried to cover up the MH17 tragedy and destroyed documents proving that Ukraine was responsible for the crash.

Disproof

The alleged documents were not reported by any credible media; they contain linguistic errors; they call the so-called Donetsk people's republic a "state" – whereas Ukrainian authorities use for it the term "terrorist organisation"; and they are addressed to a department that was disbanded in 2005. The whole process of planting the story, echoing it and multiplying it by state-owned media shows typical signs of a pro-Kremlin disinformation campaign: bit.ly/2rG9YtX,
