Content: Vladimir Putin claimed that Ukraine was guilty. Vesti.ru and other Russian sites still claim that the MH17 was a crash and it is unclear who is guilty.


Fact Title: The Only Credible Candidate for the Missile Launcher That Downed MH17 is Russian Buk 332

Fact Content: Between June 23-25, 2014, Russia’s 53rd Anti-Aircraft Missile Brigade transported vehicles within Russia to positions close to the Russian border with Ukraine. This includes Buk 332, later photographed and filmed in Ukraine on July 17 and 18, 2014. On July 17, 2014, Buk 332 was in Ukraine, and arrived in Donetsk in the morning. From there, while loaded onto red low-loader, it traveled eastwards through separatist-held territory, and eventually reached the town of Snizhne in the early afternoon. After arriving in Snizhne, Buk 332 was unloaded and drove under its own power southward, out of town. Buk 332 arrived at a field south of Snizhne and fired a missile that resulted in the destruction of flight MH17. The only credible candidate for the missile launcher that downed MH17 is Russian Buk 332, of the 53rd Anti-Aircraft Missile Brigade.
