Disinfo: MH17 was a false flag attack, planned by British and Ukrainian security agencies

Summary

MH17’s downing was a meticulously preplanned plot by the Ukrainian and British security agencies to pin the blame for this false flag attack on the Donbas rebels, all with the intent of portraying them as “terrorists”.

Disproof

An unfounded conspiracy theory, attempting to undermining the Joint International Investigation of the downing of the flight  MH17.

A special team, known as the Joint Investigation Team (JIT), was established to conduct the criminal investigation of the downing of the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17. The JIT comprises officials from the Dutch Public Prosecution Service and the Dutch police, along with police and criminal justice authorities from Australia, Belgium, Malaysia and Ukraine.

The JIT has concluded that flight MH17 was shot down on 17 July 2014 by a missile of the 9M38 series, launched by a BUK-TELAR, from farmland in the vicinity of Pervomaiskiy (or: Pervomaiskyi). At that time, the area was controlled by pro-Russian fighters. The BUK-TELAR was brought in from the territory of the Russian Federation and subsequently, after having shot down flight MH17, was taken back to the Russian Federation. The Dutch-led Joint Investigation Team (JIT), has concluded that the BUK-TELAR used to down MH17, originates from the 53rd Anti Aircraft Missile brigade, a unit of the Russian army from Kursk in the Russian Federation.

The European Union and NATO have called on the Russian Federation to accept its responsibility and to fully cooperate with all efforts to establish accountability. On the basis of the JIT’s conclusions, the Netherlands and Australia are convinced that Russia is responsible for the deployment of the Buk installation that was used to down MH17. The two governments are formally holding Russia accountable. The US has supported the decisions by the Netherlands and Australia.

The US contributed to the creation of ISIS

The United States once contributed to the creation of “ISIS” in order for it to act as a force against Bashar al-Assad in Syria, and to balance the Shiite presence in Iraq.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives that the US and other Western countries are supporting and using jihadist groups to advance geopolitical goals.

There is no evidence that the US has supported radical Islamist terrorist groups in Syria or in Iraq. The US-led military campaign in Syria has been fighting ISIS and Islamic terrorists along with the Global Coalition Against Daesh. See here for similar cases on the United States using ISIS for guerrilla and subversive activities and how the US and Europe supported Jihadists in Syria to topple the Assad regime.

The US is ready to transfer 50 atomic bombs from Turkey to the Aviano base in Italy

Within NATO, Turkey is increasingly seen as an unreliable member of the Alliance. This is why the US is ready to transfer 50 atomic bombs from Turkey to the Aviano base in Italy. It looks increasingly likely that NATO will transfer 50 nuclear warheads from the Incirlik military base in Turkey to the US Armed Forces base in Aviano. As a result, Aviano would become the biggest deposit of nuclear weapons in Europe.

Disproof

No evidence. The information has been denied by Italy’s Ministry of Defence.

The Italian Ministry of Defence issued a statement that the news that has been circulating for several days regarding the transfer of nuclear weapons from Turkey to Italy is “totally baseless” and underlined that every aspect related to nuclear posture within NATO is discussed collectively among all member countries.

British curators are behind the persecution of Sputnik in Estonia

There are British curators behind the persecution of Sputnik [Estonia] by the Estonian authorities.

Disproof

This conspiracy theory is based on the concept that countries or organisations are not independent but under the control of other countries or organisations. Examples of such disinformation narratives include NATO's Eastern European members are under Washington’s political and military control or The Economist is a mouthpiece of the Rothschilds and Europe is a puppet of Washington.

As for persecution by the Estonian authorities, it should be noted that the Article 2 of the Council Regulation (EU) No 269/2014, on the territorial integrity of Ukraine, foresees freezing the assets of Dmitry Kiselyov, the Director General of Rossiya Segodnya. As a result, Estonian banks froze accounts of Rossiya Segodnya and the Financial Intelligence Unit informed persons employed or contracted by Rossiya Segodnya that knowing performance of work or services to a sanctioned person was forbidden.
