The MH17 was shot down by a Ukrainian fighter. Talking about the Joint Investigation Team, as the most victims of the catastrophe were the citizens of Australia and the Netherlands, the participation of these two countries in JIT is legitimate, while the participation of Belgium and Ukraine is “suspicious”. There was absolutely no ground to involve Belgium in the investigation. One should take into account though, that the country is the brain centre (sic!) of both the EU and the NATO. Also, Kyiv’s participation is questionable, as it is the main suspect in shooting down the flight.
Now the West is under a shock. It is investing substantial money in the change of power in Russia, in the change of policy. And they were sure that it happens amid the fact that in 2024, Putin would certainly not be in the presidential chair anymore. Now, this means that they are forced to start the war earlier. With all the insects [Russian opposition] that they have, with the options of imposing sanctions, with twitching of neighbours along the borders. We are wrestling for life or death for many years, they want to destroy us.
Recurrent conspiracy narrative on the absence of grass-roots protests in Russian and any reasons for such protest, when the civic activists are labelled «foreign agents», and the West is blamed for any domestic problems. No evidence is given to prove that Western countries together or any of them alone are plotting to dismiss Vladimir Putin, planning the "war".
