Many competing and contradictory stories promulgated by Russian state-controlled media on MH17. 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.
