The Fingerpointing Begins: Ukraine Accuses Rebels Of Shooting Down Airplane, Rebels Deny

Tyler Durden's picture


That didn't take long for the Ukrainian government to know exactly what happened:


All 280 passengers and 15 crew were killed in the crash. The Malaysian Airlines jet was shot down by the BUK Missile System according to Interfax.


The BUK Missile system:


Curiously, Anton Gerashchenko, advisor to Ukraine ministry of internal affairs, had a prepared explanation for everything that happened half an hour ago, long before Ukraine even announced it would begin a probe into the flight crash:

Kiev needs to call Bush and Cheney in order to get some advice on how to handle a false flag once it has been pulled off. I mean seriuosly, it's been about 20 minutes since the crash and they are already blaming Russia? WTF?!

ABC News reporting that flight disappears.  Shows smoke on video from crash.  Says nobody knows what the fuck is happening.  Retired NTSB goof droning upon flight recorders, etc.  Malfunctions.  B777 technology.  Etc., etc., etc.  Accidentally targeted commercial airliner?  What?  Over restricted airspace?  No... take a look at FlightAware screens... lots of commercials flying over there.. same as Iraq, Iran, etc., designated flyways....

RT says Putins plane was close by to that flight plane and that it was the UKES via NATO

I think this was a setup by the USA trying to kill Putin and the Russians played them for fools

Putin is too smart for them.  First I would not be surprised if instead he flies in a fighter escort plane instead where he has the option to eject.

USA is up to something very fishy here.  I think Putin just did check mate on the USA and he will let them make total fools of themselves before he buries them.   This may be the last nail in the coffin.

I hate to say it, but at first blush it would make sense that some Eastern Ukrainian found a SAM system under a rock somewhere and could have ignorantly shot at whatever was over his territory.

On the other hand, I would not put it past the Kiev Nazis to do this; after all look what they are doing everywhere else in the east.

as I'm quite fond of "the Legarde thing with the 7's" - I'll post the text here for reference. . .

Published on May 24, 2014

“7? references:
1:22 – “Now I’m going to test your numerology skills by asking you to think about the magic seven”
1:34 – “Most of you will know that seven is quite a number
2:24 – “2014, you drop the zero, fourteen, two times, seven”
4:08 – “It will mark the 70th anniversary, 70th anniversary, drop the zero, seven, of the Bretton Woods Conference that actually gave birth to the IMF” (7 + 0 = 7)
4:22 – “And it will be the 25th anniversary of the fall of the berlin wall, 25th..” (2 + 5 = 7)
4:38 – “It will also mark the 7th anniversary of the financial market jietters”
5:08 – “After those seven miserable years, weak and fragile”
5:14 – “We have seven strong years”
5:43 – “Now I don’t know if the G7 will have anything to do with it” (G is also the 7th letter of the alphabet)

“2014? references:
1:18 – “The global economy and what we should expect for 2014?
2:19 – “So if we think about 2014?

3:54 – “So 2014 will be a milestone and hopefully a magic year in may respects”
5:05 – “So my hope and my wish for 2014?

The point for posting this here is, why is Lagarde bringing numerology up here? Is this a message? Is numerology real? Nonsense?


I know it's repetitive posting - think of it as an antidote to everything the mainstream will be pre-scribing. . .

Tell that to families of the 295 passengers that just "bought it" in that airplane Kiev just shot down along with the 500 and counting dead, thounsands wounded and hundreds of thousands fleeing to safety in Russia that that U.S. funded government is 'cleansing'...

Ironic when you think that less than 70 years ago and just 20 in (Serbia and Croatia) cleansing was a term only used by Western governments that designated anyone that violated the rule of law... 

We've always lied, but now the powers that be aren't even trying to conceal it in their desperation.

Ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffalse flag.

But for whom, for what.

I called my Congresspuke yesterday to carp about the border crisis and criminal aliens.  Said...'Look - all we need to do is impose economic sanctions on Mexico and the flood would stop instantly.  How could that be a problem - we slapped them on Russia post haste - you know - no environmental impact statement, no hearings on whether Vladimir was surrounded by too many women as a youth the way Hillary apologized for Bubbas bad behavior.  Boom.  Done.'

Soooooooo we did more sanctions and a jet goes down in flames.  (Prayers for the deceased and their families.)  Did Putin do it to retaliate?  Very bad play if he did.  Did the Ukraineians do it to make like Putin did it in retailiation?  Understandable motive but hardly credible.  Either way Jogn McCain will be demanding a new sop - that would be shovel ready jobs - for the military industrial complex.

Hamas?  Iran?

To your first point, I suspect the real reason for this false flag is that the flood of illegals is gaining traction and starting to piss off a lot of real citizens worried about how this is going to affect crime, disease, welfare, education, and wages. Have to get THAT off the front pages and off the TV. Nothing better then shooting down an airliner with Cold War / Hot War repurcussions to distract the sheeple.

SDShack, you may be right, but I've been looking at the border issue as a 2-fold issue, primarily as a distraction to cover a loss of control on Reserve Currency/Petro Dollar status. Followed by the general speedballing tear-down of our System/Nation/ Rule of Law, Etc... that continues by BOTH parties, both domestically and globally.

IMHO, most likely WHOEVER did it.... they just saw a plane going over and shot it the fuck down.... probably didn't have any idea what the plane was or who was on it.

The rebels ( good guys ) supposedly had the equipment to do it... I don't know what Ukraine has.... Of course, not sure I can believe anything at all in the reporting.........  We may never know what happened but, I do know how it will be reported over here.

Both sides will attempt to blame the other and, John McCain surely has blown several nuts by now.... Maybe we'll get lucky one of these days and it will be a vein in his forehead instead....

10k altitude? Do the rebels have fighter aircrafts or air defense missiles? Highly unlikely. BUK air defense systems are operated by Ukrainian as well as Russian army. Operating range of most sophisticated BUK is 50km. If the aircraft was really downed 60km from the Russian border that would mean blame the Ukrainian airforce.

According to Wikipedia, BUK missiles have been around since 1980, most recently updated in 2007, and both Russia and Ukraine used them.

So who was the butterfingers in control of that missile?

Presumably that airplane was in cruise at 35,000 feet. 

Sophisticated radar controlled ground to air missiles can certainly get up that high, but it takes time to train people to use that equipment. 

Even if the Russians supplied it, hard to see how the rebels got trained that fast to use it.

Oil north of $102 and the 10 year well south of 2.5.  Of course, I think that was true before the airliner news.

Is America governed by mad men? With everything pointing to an Israeli occupation of Washington, as Obama pushes ahead with his support for Israeli leaders threatening a full scale ground invasion of Gaza and as US-backed Yats/Poroshenko atrocities pile up in Eastern Ukraine, where is the US brokerage for peace, for saving lives?

Fascist Atrocities Mount as US-backed Regime Assaults Eastern Ukraine | Global Research | July 17, 2014

By Alex Lantier

As the Western-backed regime in Kiev assaults pro-Russian militias in the major cities of eastern Ukraine, mass graves are coming to light in Slavyansk, the former opposition stronghold recently captured by Kiev. The government offensive is unfolding with the support of Washington and the European Union (EU), which yesterday imposed more sanctions to compel Moscow to abandon any support for opposition militias in Ukraine.

Andriy Lysenko, the spokesman for the Kiev regime’s Defense and Security Council, said yesterday that “hundreds of bodies of rebel fighters” had been found in shallow graves. Lysenko claimed some of the graves “have been mined by the terrorists”—apparently implying that some of the dead were killed during the siege of Slavyansk and buried by fellow opposition fighters before Kiev’s forces captured the town. Lysenko refused to give further details.

While the Kiev regime’s bombardment of Slavyansk doubtless caused hundreds of casualties, its own accounts show that the far-right Ukrainian nationalist militias it has mobilized are carrying out a campaign of political terror and murder in Slavyansk. Upon capturing the city, they detained all men between the ages of 25 and 35 on suspicion of supporting or giving aid, including medical aid, to the opposition militias.

On Tuesday, Interior Ministry official Anton Gerashchenko confirmed that two Slavyansk priests had been murdered for supporting opposition forces. “We found a grave of two priests from Slavyansk, who were tortured and killed by the Ukrainian nationalists,” Gerashchenko said. The bodies of two sons of one of the priests were discovered in the same grave as the priests’ mutilated remains.

The Odessa diocese confirmed that Ukrainian nationalists have threatened, beaten or kidnapped several Orthodox priests, many of whom they consider too close to Moscow. The Odessa diocese secretary, Archpriest Andrei Novikov, who has fled to Moscow fearing arrest by Ukrainian nationalist groups, said, “I’m sure if the government keeps its position, it will handle the physical liquidation of the Moscow Patriarchate in Ukraine.”

Statements by top Kiev officials during the siege of Slavyansk amounted to a blank check for its far-right forces—including fascist militias such as the Right Sector and Azov Battalion and the newly formed National Guard—to murder civilians.

President Petro Poroshenko pledged that his forces would “liquidate” opposition fighters…. Poroshenko called for disproportionate killings in retaliation for losses suffered by his regime, saying: “For every soldier’s life, the militants will pay with dozens and hundreds of their own.” …

If you want a death wish, drive as a passenger with Mrs Atomizer. She is a brilliant business person. Has no common sense. For example, she was watering the plants and garden this morning. Took out her two mobile phones on water intake. As I type, she is replacing them. 

Nevertheless, I love her. 

Little humor to share with the community.

I am trying to imagine what those helpless and blameless passengers and crew endured before they died and what their loved ones will endure for the rest of their lives.

I guess Ukraine has just become a no-fly zone.

May the innocent rest in peace and may the guilty never enjoy peace in any sense of the word.

There's this Ukie plane or bomber that was just shot down over the Ukranian city of Torez.  I don't rule out the possibility the militias shot down the Malaysian plane by accident, the militias captured some Ukranian anti-aircraft BUK missiles recently.  Or it could be a false flag by the Ukranians, they're suffering huge losses and want a scapegoat, and to draw in more Western support.

Over Thorez was hit by the plane, more details (video)

"Today, the area Thorez (DND) plane fell Ukrainian air force. There is a version, according to which over Thorez shot down an-26. But probably it was the bomber, because according to the information of eye-witnesses, the plane has released several missiles before the fall..."

map of where Thorez is located, it's east of Donetsk:

Three most likely happenings:

1.  The airplane 'lost contact' somehow and deviated from the flight path - causing it to be treated as hostile by the Ukraine missile batteries

2.  Something inside the plane went 'BOOM'

3.  Something mechanical went wrong, and Gravity won the battle.

There should be a fair amount of signal intelligence available here, as Ukraine, Russia, and the CIA have to be monitoring everything going on.  The only question is whether the true sig-int will be released.

The Russians could spin this to their favor. The big headline before this happened was that Ukraine blamed Russia for downing a Su-25. Ukraine brings in the sophisticated anti-aircraft to prevent this. Paranoid Ukraine shoots down the airliner.
