An article slipped through onto ABC online on Christmas day while everyone was busy with festivities. It reads: MH17: Russian investigators claim proof from witness that Ukrainian pilot involved in downing of flight.
Russian investigators say they have new proof from a witness that a Ukrainian pilot fired a missile on the day of the Malaysia Airlines crash which killed 298 people, including 38 Australians. The witness, who was not named, worked at an airfield in the Ukrainian city of Dnipropetrovsk where he claimed to have seen a warplane – a Sukhoi-25 jet take off on July 17 armed with air-to-air rockets and return to the base without them.
As reported in Prison Planet, the investigators used a polygraph during the interview, which showed no evidence of the witness lying.
“The facts were reported by the witness clearly and with no inconsistencies. The investigators lean towards considering them truthful. A polygraph examination confirmed them too,” the official said.
According to his account, the witness personally saw the plane piloted by [Ukrainian military pilot with surname] Voloshin armed with R-60 air-to-air missiles, and added there was no need for such weapons during regular air missions of the Ukrainian Air Forces because the rebel forces had no military aircraft.
This version is consistent with witness accounts on the ground. (Past MH17 posts)
Maybe the Australian government, along with the media, will begin to tweak the official ‘Putin is to blame’ narrative. As the investigation is under an agreement of secrecy, we can only wonder what they have so far discovered.
