The Netherlands decided to hide the reason for the MH-17 tragedy

Summary of Disinformation

The Council of State in the Netherlands violated the law allowing to keep in secret the information concerning the MH-17 tragedy. The Netherlands military interests may be the reason for this. The Dutch investigators got the Buk missile from Georgia. And now they are busy not so much with the investigation of the tragedy, but trying to find out how this BUK can be used to shoot down “other aircrafts”.

Disproof

Reccuring MH17-related disinformation. According to the Council of State, it is necessary that the information remains confidential, as it is likely that disclosure thereof could jeopardize the proper functioning of the committee. The Council found this more important than the interest of disclosure. "The interest of disclosure does not outweigh the interest protected by the refusal, such as the relations of the Netherlands with other states and international organizations, respect for the privacy of the parties involved and the protection of personal policy views", the Council ruled.

The information that the Dutch militants are looking into how to use a BUK-missile to hit other military aircraft is a pure conspiracy.

Joint Investigative Team (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 MH-17, was taken back to the Russian Federation.
