Rebels Shoot Down Two Ukraine Fighter Jets, Defense Ministry Reports - Video Coverage

Tyler Durden's picture


At this point it is beyond any one (or countless number of) human beings to distinguish truth from lies from epic propaganda, so we won't even try. Here is the latest relevant news that just crossed the stream from Ukraine's defense ministry. From Bloomberg:


More from Reuters: Pro-Russian rebels have shot down two Ukrainian fighter jets, a spokesman for Ukraine's military operations said on Wednesday. The spokesman said the two were downed near Savur Mogila in eastern Ukraine. No details were known about the pilots.

And from the WSJ:

Pro-Russian separatists shot down two Ukrainian fighter jets Wednesday over a town close to where Malaysia Airlines 3786.KU -2.17% Flight 17 crashed last week, a Ukrainian defense ministry spokesman said.


Two SU-25 planes were brought down near the town of Saur-Mogila, which sits close to the Russian border and is 20 kilometers (12 miles) from Torez, where the civilian jet was brought down last Thursday, the spokesman said.


The alleged shoot-down of the jets would mark the first time a plane has been brought down over Ukraine since the crash.


The spokesman said the army dispatched a team to the scene to establish the exact circumstances of the downing of the jets. Rebels didn't immediately comment

As a reminder, it was the same Ukraine which hours before the MH17 crash insisted that a Russian fighter jet had downed a Ukraine warplane, a story which promptly disappeared once Russia rejected it as idiotic and once the much more severe fallout from the MH17 disaster hit.

Somehow we have a feeling this is merely yet another attempt by Ukraine to keep the pressure on the rebels now that the international response to MH17 has been muted by nearly 100% following Europe's complete inability to agree on what if any sanctions should be imposed on Putin, and the US state department presenting evidence of Russian involvement that can best be described as laughable.

Well it's quite obvious now the the US will do everything and anything in order to start a full-scale war in Ukraine. I couldn't possibly imagine that it would have something to do with 1) the coming stock-market crash and 2) Germany not willing to take side with the US and put sanctions against Russia (which in turn puts even more pressure on the US Dollar)... Right?

The SU-25's are low flying air to ground attack aircraft.  They were almost certainly downed by MANPADS.  Those two facts do not matter to the zombies though.  They will process the new information as follows:

They just shot down two more jets just like MH17.  OMFG, let's go in there and kill them all!!!

While I agree on the USSA blowing dough like it's going out of style (because it is), I wouldn't under estimate the Deep State and it's top secret aircraft. The mere fact that the development of the F-35 is so public should have inquiring minds wanting to know "Why?" While I don't claim to know, I wouldn't be surprised if all those billions weren't really being spent on another aircraft entirely, one that is not a highly public boondoggle, one that can probably exit the atmosphere.

So..........   what are the chances that these are the same two jets that were tailing MH-17.  

And is it possible that they shot an air to air form their operating ceiling limit (which wikipedia says is 23-25,000 ft) to 33,000 ft where the airliner was?  

Anyone have any knowledge of air to air missile ranges for the type of air to air missile the SU-25 would likely be carrying?  Could it have made it up to 33,000 ft from 23,000 ft?


Would fit in to why Kiev repeatedly ordered the plane to go to a lower altitude.  Perhaps they couldn't reach it if it was higher.  


Then in order to clean up loose ends (to a fabricated story that is falling apart) they send the pilots up and shoot them down, blaming the seperatists.

If any of those planes had a payload, no way they are hitting their ceiling limit. 

Range of those missles, the kh-29 is 5-16 miles while the later version can travel up 16 miles.

MH17 Chameleon: Operation Rapid Trident II




The announcement of U.S. BREEZE and RAPID TRIDENT II military maneuvers came on May 21, 2014 by Vice President Joe Biden’s office. Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, is a newly-named director of the Ukrainian natural gas and oil company Burisma Holdings, Ltd., owned by Ihor Kolomoisky, the Ukrainian-Israeli mafia oligarch, who is known as the «Chameleon». Kolomoisky has raised his own mercenary army, complete with the BUK missiles allegedly used in the shootdown of MH-17. Kolomoisky, the Governor of Dnipropetrovsk oblast in eastern Ukraine, has threatened terrorist attacks against Russian-speaking officials in eastern Ukraine, including assassinations.

While we are still waiting for the publication of the Ukranian ATC communication, I have the following questions for Kiev:

In the background article from Reuters dated 17th July 2014 it says:

"In a previous attack on a military transporter, which it said was launched from Russia, Kiev was unable to specify whether it came from landbased missiles or airborne."

While the headline stated clearly: "Russian jets shoot down Ukrainian warplane over Ukraine - Kiev military"

The actual text is vague: "The Ukrainian Defence Ministry said the plane was brought down on Wednesday night near Amvrosiyivka, about 15 km (about 9 milles) from the border with Russia, by rockets which hit it in the tail as it wheeled away from the border. "It is likely that this was carried out by air-to-air rockets from the Russian airforce which were patrolling the border in a pair," the ministry said in a statement on its website."

A separate incidents was described like this: "Kiev has said that an An-26 military transporter was brought down last Monday probably by a missile fired from Russia, either from the air or from the ground."

Question: On the 17th July 2014, when it became clear that MH17 had crashed the Ukrainian Officials was extraordinarily quick to publish specific information that pro-russian rebels had shot down the airliner using a ground-to-air BUK missile battery stationed somewhere inside rebel territory. Can the governemt provide proof for these precise allegations, when it is clear that just hours before on the same day, Ukranian Officials were unable to specify the precise origin of missiles that had shot down an AN-26 on the 14 July and the alleged shoot down of a Ukranian fighter jet. In the same background article it is stated that 4 rockets exploded near Kuybyshevo, fired from the Ukranian side, and the Ukrainian Officials claim that Ukranian positions came under heavy fire during those 24 hours with artillery fire also from Kuybyshevo. So they are shooting at each other. However, the artcle specifically mentions a Ukranian paratroop tactical group deployed at Dmytrivka that came under particular heavy fire. We know that paratroopers are generally elite troops used for sting operations behind enemy lines and we know that paratrooper units generally have more advanced equipment available at their disposal than regular canon-fodder troops, and we know that the Ukrainian Military has BUK batteries in the arsenal. Question: During the recent Russian 10 questions presentation, the Russian alledged to have proof of a Ukranian BUK battery near rebel held territory. This allegation was supported by satelite images, which I do not claim to be able to read, but they were provided, Given that these paratroopers came under particular hard fire in Dmytrivka suggesting particular importance - at a location only approx. 10 KM FROM SNIZHNE, where the US powerpoint slide claims the culprit (rebel) BUK battery was stationed, can Kiev provide proof that these paratroopers were not accompanied by a missile launching capability able to reach 10.000 meters altitude? Final comment - there appeared to be feverish activity in the morning of 17th July in small geografical circle that is made up by Kuybyshevo, Amvrosiyivka, Snizhne and Dmytrivka. If the rebels and the Russians were aware of the presence of Ukrainian paratroopers and potentially advanced Ukrainian missile gear (presented in "10 russian questions" to be "near" Donesk) plus Ukrainian fighter jets - one of which was claimed to be shot down by air-to-air missile with subsequent Russian denial but no proof. Why? If Russia was trying to prevent a setup for a potential false flag and/or shoot down of Russian Military aircrafts patrolling the border region on the Russian side (recalling that the rebels do not have their own airforce and hence cannot be the target for the Ukrainian BUKs), why are they not willing to disclose this to the public?

Of course. But that should not stop anyone from asking questions and pointing out inconsistencies. When pressure is continued, mistakes are and will be made, and a picture may emerge and clarify from the "convenient statements" even if they themselves do not represent the truth. There is a western world news black-out and cover-up in progress. The Russians have not cried bloody murder at the handover of the black boxes to the UK, so presumably Russia is now participating or at least accepting in the black-out. The whole thing seems to be laid to rest without any credible answers.

I know - nothing new there - but the blogosphere, alternative media and regular people should continue to be all over this whole stinking affair like an ant hill with a flagpole jammed into it!

I am thinking Putin has the proof that Ukraine took it down and he calls Obama and gives him an out before he reveals and puts egg in Obamaa's face. Next thing you know, overnight the US changes the tune that it must have been downed by mistake due to new info, without saying what info.

I am thinking that the two alleged downed Russian made Ukrainian planes can be perhaps hacked and disabled by Russia while flying, or the Ukrainians sacrificially downed some older ones to either get NATO equipment and/or to prove that the rebels do have the ability to down them.

Most important is the propaganda war, but too many people, too many eyes, too many blogs. The moving vehicle allegedly in East Ukraine ended up being Ukrainian territory from the shop in the back and the billboard.

Sounds plausible. Nobody knows whether MH17 was shot down by a surface-to-air missile or by an air-to-air missile. If Russia has recordings of Ukraine giving its pilots orders to fire on the plane, that might convince the U.S. to back off a bit.

            'really, the hard drive crashed and we didn't have backup - anywhere'

                     the lies are compounding everywhere!

Clearly these planes being shot down are just another "flase flag" "cia-mossad" attempt by the nazis in Kiev to somehow blame the freedom fighters collectively referred to as "pro Russian".

SO lets see if we have got things straight: if a Ukrainian military aricraft is destroyed by AA missiles then the freedom fighters did it.

IF in the same area, these same AA missiles destroy a civilian aircraft, it was done by the CIA and Mossad or the Nazis in Kiev in an attempt to frame the freedom fighters.

AND only Putin hating racists would point out that 6 aircraft destroyed in the area of conflict, with freedom fighters using mass media to claim they did it for 5 of them, but one was done by the CIA, Nazis, or MOSSAD.

CLear as a bell to me, sorta like 6 people geting shot in Chicago by gang bangers , 5 of them killed by gang bangers and one was killed by the CIA, Nazis or MOSSAD. Even though all of them were killed with same caliber weapon and the casings match the firing pin.

MH17 Chameleon: Operation Rapid Trident II




The announcement of U.S. BREEZE and RAPID TRIDENT II military maneuvers came on May 21, 2014 by Vice President Joe Biden’s office. Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, is a newly-named director of the Ukrainian natural gas and oil company Burisma Holdings, Ltd., owned by Ihor Kolomoisky, the Ukrainian-Israeli mafia oligarch, who is known as the «Chameleon». Kolomoisky has raised his own mercenary army, complete with the BUK missiles allegedly used in the shootdown of MH-17. Kolomoisky, the Governor of Dnipropetrovsk oblast in eastern Ukraine, has threatened terrorist attacks against Russian-speaking officials in eastern Ukraine, including assassinations.

(Also) The TERRORISTS are winning! They are equipped with Russian gear so of course they can shoot down our Russian planes! We need tip-top NATO aid and gear... or the TERRORISTS will win!

Of course, we won't know how to operate NATO gear, so we'll need NATO troops to operate it for us!

The F-35's are allowed to fly now. As long as it's not at night. Or raining. Or snowing. Or foggy. But hey, they fixed the landing hook so the naval version can land on a carrier. In another 5-10 years, they should have most of the kinks worked out. As long as they don't fly too high, since the ventilation system asphyxiates the pilots.

I haven't heard of one actually in service, though.

Considering the VERY public trials and tribulations of the F-35 development.. 

Has is it ever occured to anyone that the F-35 is quite possibly just a shell, a smoke screen for what is really being developed with the $325+Billion?  Considering the US MIC's extensive history of developing aircraft that spend the majority of their operational lifespan Top Secret (SR-71, U-2, B-2, F-117, RQ-170, etc...) I think its more than reasonable to believe that the boondoggle that is the F-35 is intentional and meant to launder billions into black projects.
