The BBC’s documentary presents new evidence suggesting MH17 was downed by Ukrainian jet

The BBC’s documentary presents new evidence suggesting that the downing of the Malaysian Airlines plane MH17 was caused by a shot from a Ukrainian fighter jet rather than a ground-to-air missile.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about the downing of MH17. 

The BBC documentary entitled "The Conspiracy Files: Who Shot Down MH17?" does not claim that Ukraine downed MH17. "Experts in fact tell the programme it was unlikely a Ukrainian fighter jet could have shot down MH17, as they cannot fly at such high altitudes", the BBC's press service confirmed.
