Nikolai Parshin, chief of the Russian Defense Ministry Main Rocket and Artillery Directorate said that a surface-to-air missile launched from a Buk air defense system that downed the Malaysia Airline flight MH17 in 2014 was manufactured in Dolgoprudny outside Moscow in 1986 and sent to Ukraine, from where it has never returned to Russia. [Meaning the MH17 flight could not have been shot down by the BUK missile system that arrived from Russia just before the tragedy and returned to Russia right after the tragedy, as the JIT investigation shows.] “The missile with the side number 886847379 designed for the Buk air defense missile system was transported by rail to military unit 20152 on December 29, 1986. The actual name of this military unit is the 223rd Air Defense Missile Brigade of the Carpathian Military District, stationed in the Ternopil region. After the Soviet Union’s breakup, it was not transferred outside Ukraine”, said Parshin.
“We are unfortunately living in a propaganda era, when media and the Western establishment are trying to discredit any information coming from Russia. The team that investigates the plane’s downing will be obliged to take into account this new information released by the Russian authorities but the international community will remain silent. They prefer not to speak on a topic where they were wrong. They are and will remain totally silent on a subject. Their silence proves that this information is true and credible.”
On Monday 17 September, the JIT, tasked with probing the case, issued a statement saying it had “taken note of the information that has been publicly presented by the authorities of the Russian Federation for the first time today.” The JIT went on to say that it had asked for the Russian Federation to provide “all relevant information” as early as 2014, specifically requesting in May of this year “information concerning numbers found on several recovered missile parts.” The JIT said it would “meticulously study” the new material once the new documents are made available, adding that information previously provided by Russia “had proven to be “factually inaccurate,” citing the “alleged presence of a fighter plane in the vicinity of MH17 on radar imagery presented to the public on (at) a press conference in July 2014.” Read the full debunk by Polygraph.: https://www.polygraph.info/a/fact-check-mh17-russia-missile-claim/29501085.html?ltflags=mailer
