The Dutch proved that the missile that shot down the MH17 had been manufactured in Ukraine

Summary of Disinformation

The Dutch proved that the missile that shot down the MH17 had been manufactured in Ukraine. The year of manufacturing stated in the missile was published by the Dutch.

Disproof

Many competing and contradictory stories promulgated by Russian state-controlled media on MH17. https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=mh17&disinfo_issue=&date=

The Dutch-led Joint Investigation Team (JIT), which investigates the MH17 crash on 17 July 2014, 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.

In September 2016, the JIT disclosed that MH17 was downed with a BUK missile of the 9M38 series. In Eastern Ukraine, two parts of such a missile were found. These parts are the so-called ‘venturi’ and the ‘casing’. This regards on the one hand the exhaust of the missile (venturi) and on the other hand the casing of the missile engine (casing).

The missile engine’s casing shows the number 9 д 1318869032. The JIT-investigation up to now has found that 9д 131 relates to the number of the missile engine of the 9M38 type and/or 9M38M1 type. The number 8 is the manufacturer’s code, namely: the Dolgoprudny Research and Manufacturing Enterprise in Moscow. The number 86 indicates the year of production, namely 1986. And the number 9032 is the unique identification number of this specific missile engine.

The JIT has established that this involves a missile of the 9M38 Buk-series. To what extent both parts belong to the missile that was launched by the BUK TELAR of the 53rd brigade can, as yet, not be said with certainty. www.om.nl/onderwerpen/mh17-crash/@103196/update-criminal-0/,

Background

The Joint Investigation Team investigation has meticulously traced the BUK that shot down MH17 on its way from Russia and back.  For a full explanation of the findings from the JIT, watch their video where they conclude that the BUK that shot down MH17 came from the Russian Armed Forces. It was transported into pro-Russian separatist controlled area by a Russian convoy. There is forensic and visual evidence, and three independent investigations have all come to the same conclusion. Meanwhile, Russia used its veto to block a draft resolution to set up an international tribunal into the MH17 air disaster.
