Flight MH17 - The Hunt for the Truth
Correct!v has released an in-depth investigation into the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over Eastern Ukraine on July 17th 2014. Flight MH17 - Searching for the Truth provides detailed evidence suggesting that MH17 was downed by a ground-launched BUK missile which was fired by a unit of the 53rd Russian Air Defense Brigade.
The report includes eye-witness accounts from the missile launch site, rebuttals of Russian counter-claims and interviews with Ukrainian separatists. However while Correct!v clearly blames Russia for bringing down flight MH17 they also say that the Ukrainian government are not entirely blameless. They claim that the government were deliberately using civilian flights as cover for air attacks on Russian tanks.
The report includes an animated map showing air traffic over the site of the downed MH17 on July 17th. The map also includes flight data for July 18th showing the immediate reduction in flight traffic over the area as airlines realized that these flight paths were no longer safe.
