Ukrainian secret service manipulated a sound recording in the MH17 investigation

Summary

The Ukrainian secret service manipulated a sound recording in the MH17 investigation.

As an indication of the manipulation, the Malaysian expert mentions the noise level in the sound recording: “That is manipulated. The noise level differs from this audio track. See this soundtrack, the noise level differs in this part. It is lower here and higher here”.

Audio parts had been cut together. There are also many sections that have been cut out. “That is clear, you can see that, the lack of parts of the audio recording,” the analyst added.

Disproof

No evidence presented. A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative on Flight MH17.

The Dutch-led Joint Investigation Team 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 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 MH17, was taken back to the Russian Federation.

In 2018, Bellingcat confirmed that the BUK missile launcher which hit the airline near Donetsk was brought from Russia. On the basis of the investigation conducted by the JIT, the Dutch Public Persecution service will prosecute Igor Vsevolodovich Girkin, Sergey Nikolayevich Dubinskiy, Oleg Yuldashevich Pulatov, and Leonid Volodymyrovych Kharchenko for causing the crash of the MH17 and murdering the 289 persons on board. The public hearing is scheduled for March 9, 2020 in the Netherlands.

Since July 2014, Russian authorities have been conducting a disinformation campaign, in which, together with the media they directly and indirectly control with the aim of covering up the truth about who shot down Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 over Eastern Ukraine.

All high-ranking politicians in the Baltic states are likely implicated in paedophilia

One can assume that in the Baltic States politicians are not given access to big politics unless they have some involvement in paedophilia, because this is a method of control. No one needs people who are not easy to control there.

Disproof

The disinformation message consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about lost sovereignty of the Baltic States and Western moral decay.

See earlier disinformation cases alleging that necrophilia and bestiality are accepted norms in Sweden, Germany and Denmark and that Europe is close to legalising paedophilia. A collection of earlier paedophilia-related disinformation cases can be seen here.

Skripal case was invented to cover up paedophilia scandals in the UK

The Skripal scandal began when it became known that Theresa May, the former prime minister of the UK, covered up paedophilia scandals back when she was a Home Secretary.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, repeating one of the many pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the Skripal poisoning.

The disinformation message implicitly refers to the so called Westminster paedophile dossier which was assembled by the British Member of Parliament Geoffrey Dickens. It was suggested that some of the files concerning paedophiles allegedly associated with the British government were deliberately destroyed or disregarded by the Home Office. It is groundless to allege that Theresa May attempted to cover the paedophile claims because it was she as Home Secretary who in 2014 triggered further inquiries on whether the Home Office failed to act on allegations made by MP Dickens in 1980s.

NATO will use Georgia and Ukraine for provocations against Russia, without giving them full membership

NATO will not give full membership to Ukraine, or Georgia, nor other countries participating in various programmes of interaction with the alliance. NATO will use their territories for various provocations against Russia.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about NATO encircling Russia and NATO belligerence, as well as about Ukraine and Georgia and cooperation with NATO.

NATO’s essential and enduring purpose is to safeguard the freedom and security of all its members by political and military means.
