MH17 Crash that Killed 298 Civilians Most Likely Due to Putin

An International team of investigators announced Wednesday that there are “strong indications” Russian president Putin was the person who approved the supply of anti-aircraft weaponry (Buk missile system) to Ukrainian separatists who shot down Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 in 2014, killing all 298 onboard. A Buk missile system from the Russian military’s 53rd Anti-Aircraft Missile Brigade, based in the city of Kursk, was used to bring down MH17, according to FoxNews.

Four suspects were involved in the case but one was acquitted due to a lack of evidence, and three men: Two Russians and one pro-Russian-Ukrainian who didn’t present at the trial. The three men are charged with multiple murder charges.

The clearest evidence of Russian involvement presented for the MH17 downing was the Buk missile which came from a Russian military base indicating Moscow had a role in this case. Russia has always denied involvement.
