UN Says MH-17 Downing "May Be War Crime"; Russia Responds Photos Of Ukraine Shelling Are Fake

Tyler Durden's picture


With the start of the new weeks, and with the MH-17 tragedy increasingly more distant and blurred, with no definitive evidence on either presented so far, with a stripped black box revealing nothing, and with the Air Traffic control recordings still in Ukraine secret service hands, the "He said, She said" is about to escalate to a fever pitch.

The UN launched the first salvo when it announced earlier today that the downing of Malaysia Airlines jet MH17 in eastern Ukraine may constitute a "war crime", according to UN human rights chief Navi Pillay says.

"This violation of international law, given the prevailing circumstances, may amount to a war crime," Ms Pillay, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, said of the downing of MH17.

"Every effort will be made to ensure that anyone committing serious violations of international law including war crimes will be brought to justice, no matter who they are," Ms Pillay said.

This is happening after a team of Australian and Dutch police and forensic experts was forced to abandon attempts to reach the site on Monday due to the security situation in the area. It was the second failed attempt in as many days. The reason: ongoing incursions by the Ukraine army in nearby towns. In a statement on Monday, the Ukrainian military said it had "entered" the towns of Shakhtarsk and Torez and was working to seize control of Pervomaysk and Snizhne - all close to the crash site of MH17. Irrelevant of the facts, this too will be blamed on Putin.

And speaking of Putin, based on all the evidence (all of it in the "hearsay", "emotional appeal" and "YouTube clip" format ), the UN is already setting the stage to brand the Russian president a war criminal. And yet, somehow we doubt it will have any more success in bringing him to "justice" than the Iraqi people will have in getting Colin Powell to stand for trial over the US invasion over fabricated WMD "evidence."

What certainly won't help international tribunal matters is that overnight, the same Hague court where Putin will soon be tried in absentia, ruled on Monday that Russia must pay a group of shareholders in oil giant Yukos $51.6 billion for expropriating its assets, a big hit for a country teetering on the brink of recession.

The arbitration panel in the Netherlands said it had awarded shareholders in the GML group just under half of their $114 billion claim, going some way to covering the money they lost when the Kremlin seized Yukos, once controlled by Mikhail Khodorkovsky.


"The award is a slam dunk. It is for $50 billion, and that cannot be disputed," said Tim Osborne, director of GML. "It's now a question of enforcing it."

Good luck with that, because last time we checked Putin is not exactly "compliant" with arbitrary western propaganda decisions, unless of course it involves the capture of even more Crimeas in the process.

And speaking of Russian responses, remember those DigitalGlobe pics the US State Department presented as "evidence" of Russia's shelling of east Ukraine?



It didn't take long for Russia to promptly reject all of them outright as nothing but fakes. According to RIA, the Russian Defense Ministry says not possible to establish authenticity of U.S. satellite photos alleging shelling from Russian into Ukrainian territory, citing spokesman Igor Konashenkov.

Photos already were shown by Kiev; fakes prepared by U.S. advisers; source of fakes lost in information “carousel,” said the Russian newswire.

So now what: clearly any evidence that one side presents will be promptly refuted as fake or propaganda by the other side and vice versa. The big question is who will arbitrate, especially if a real, impactful retaliation against Russia refuse to come (where are those Gazprom sanctions). With China so far clearly on the side of Russia the question remains very much unanswered.

You tell the truth like Ukranian fighter jets were using the plane as a shield and low and behold, it worked, win win for the west. The fighters don't get shot down, and then they can blame Russia for supplying the weapons which actually came from Lybia. Just admit it, we are the worst in every way.

The USSA will promote any and all lies to destroy Russia, enslave her population with debt, and  steal her resources.  At this point, Putin must realize that appeasing the West is a waste of time.  Even if Russia did not shoot the artillery shells, they should have.

USSA has declared war on Russia and is using the Ukraine as it's proxy. Time to take off the gloves, Mr. Putin.

The "He said, She said" has different weights. What the UN said is made up. What the US said is made up. What Russia is doing is providing evidence and asking questions that have not been refuted.

There is one overriding piece of evidence that trumps everything, in my opinion: and that is the Kiev government has taken control of all the communications from the Kiev airport tower and has not released them.

Imagine if there had been a plane crash in France and the Paris tower refused to release any of the communications with the airplane. It is a patent admission of guilt in my opinion. The whole world wants to know what happened, and Kiev will not cooperate. That’s the outstanding evidence; and the US is guilty because it does not insist on it.

And to release it now - after the charges have been made and there’s ample proof of doctoring audio transmissions in the past - is meaningless.

Thank you, Nozzle. I've seen this website devolve into a farce from all the propaganda that it is putting out. This used to be a place where readers could go for getting both sides of the story on many issues. But the recent spate of bullshit about the situation in Ukraine is daunting. There is no attempt being made whatsoever to present both sides of the issues. The Americans and the Russians are playing the same game. I enjoy pointing out the hypocrisy of presenting only the Russian versions of current events. I'd do the same thing if this website reeked of rampant pro-Americanism instead. I have lived in both Russia and the United States and I have seen how it works in both countries. Have a good day.

No mention from witnesses of any white streak of smoke which in the case of the Buk would be vivid...  


   Its always funny to watch even the so called "alternative" media spout "Mh 17 shot down by..."  when there has been ZERO witnesses of such that it was even shot down?   Missles target engines and planes dont spew body parts and material when engines catch fire!   The old principle of monkey "telephone" is still at epidemic proportions.   These streaks caused by the BUK show up extremely well on satellite photos and would no doubt be used as evidence if such did occur.     Are people hard wired to be stupid as monkeys or have they been educated to be that way?  Jury is still out on that one...

 The area where the Malaysian passenger jet MH17 fell in Ukraine is a crash site not a crime site! Painting it as a crime site does not make it so. Whether shot down by accident or intentionally, most of the evidence on how and why this occurred will most likely come from sources other than the crash site or fields where the flight went down. I for one feel total disgust and seriously distressed that this tragedy has become nothing more than a propaganda gem. More on this topic in the article below.

"evidence' is presented in courts for judges to make a decision."


Sometimes the law defends plunder and participates in it. Sometimes the law even places the whole apparatus of judges, police, prisons and gendarmes at the service of the plunderers, and treats the victim, when he defends himself, as a criminal. But often the masses are plundered and do not even know it.

- Frédéric Bastiat



When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it

The US is bizarre in its attempt to try and get at Russia, using its patsy the UN, trying to bully European countries, faking evidence...covering up the Ukrainian false flag murder of 300 people in MH17 ... and now a war criminal?


Have to laugh at the hypocrisy of the US, the biggest warmonger and cause of civilian deaths since WW2. Maybe we should start counting up how many deaths the US adminsitration has caused since 1945 in its various wars and coups and false flag events in its campaign for oil and hegemony.


That would lead to the whole USA being cited as a multiple war criminal country. The US might defend itself by saying...that the $2trillion it gave to defense countries was good for these wars were just so many economic broken windows.

If "...The US has no money to buy allies..." then why did the spend billions in ukraine and other countries fomenting the overthrow of governments? Maybe being "exceptional" means others don't have to be considered as they must be unexceptional and the US knows best, with us or against us - why can't people disagree without being against us?

When Gorby allowed the wall to come down it was agreed Nato would not be expanded up to the borders of russia, however the EU and Nato have relentlessly been expanding ever since. Given russia's history of being invaded of course they want to feel secure and not constantly threatened by a Nato that spends many times what they spend on defence. The vast majority of people in russia & ukraine (and most everywhere i have ever been) are like us they want to peacefully get on with their lives and do their best for themselves and their kids.

The US would scream blue murder if all neighbouring countries were armed by an alliance that was against them and were surrounded by bases.

But Kiev is currently under the influence of US military advisors and has been for some time.  This incident could not have occurred without foreknowledge, yet alone coordination to bring about a predetermined outcome.  Paul Craig Roberts has a valid point in observing the 5:45 AM, US PST Sunday release of "State Department Evidence" to social media outlets as more than just a little bit suspect.  Only to see the "evidence" not being claimed by the "offficial" US State department, but having any questions as to the photos being directed back to the same US military advisors currently in theatre.

The US may be theoretally broke but until the dollar crashes it is not actually broke, it can just print or electronically issue as many dollars as it likes, at no cost to itself, to buy as many favours or products as it wants from around the world.

That is the power having your own reserve currency gives you.

As a consequence, the easiest, quickest and cheapest way for the 'US' to win this particular civil war would be to give 50k USD to every Russian speaking 18+ Ukrainian male who agreed to a re-unified country plus the same to any family with a dead member (all Ukrainians including soldiers of both sides). Western Ukrainians may not like it but I suspect it would be 'job done'.

Beware August 4. Study your history boys and girls.


August 4, 1914.

UK/ Anglo Empire (Australia, Canada, NZ etc.) declares War on Germany.


August 4, 1964 (50 Years Later)

2nd - and telling - Gulf of Tonkin Incident. (False Flag)

US Congress passes the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution essentially allowing the US to intervene militarily in Vietnam.


August 4, 2014 (????? Next week).

Wouldn't you know it, that fabulous day is rolling around again in a week's time.

What's the hurry this time? Well, less than a week later Erdogan is likely to be elected Turkish President (August 10, 2014). As has been well documented, he is not at all friendly with the US at the moment is he.

If he is elected, there is a good chance he will in short order pull Turkey out of NATO and potentially block US access to the Black Sea. As well as close down NATO airforce bases on Turkish soil. Incirlik, Izmir. Not easy to do quickly - according to this article there are 24 NATO bases in Turkey. (

Well - better get on with the False Flags. I'm sure there are a whole suite of them ready to go. In fact, they are testing some at the moment. The airliner shootdown was just one out of the playbook. Operation Northwoods anyone?

The next one is clearly pinning the Russians as having displayed naked agression against Ukraine by way of attacking Ukraine. This will allow Obama et al to claim they need to urgently support Ukraine by supplying heavy weaponry to Kiev, including putting NATO troops on the ground.

You watch - its coming. If not next Monday - on one of the favourite days out there for this sort of thing, one would have to suspect sometime in August, or at the latest September.

Nothing anybody can do at all, except sit back and watch where these corrupt and greedy oligarchs lead countries and the fate of the planet.

'Fake': Russian Defence Min rebuffs US sat image claims

Russia’s Defense Ministry has stated that “fake” satellite images of alleged shelling of Ukraine from Russian territory were created by US counselors “with close links to Ukraine’s Security Council.”

The authenticity of the images is impossible to prove, the ministry added.

The Defense Ministry stated that the images posted by the US ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt on his Twitter account, allegedly proving the shelling of Ukraine from Russian territory, are “fake,” ITAR-TASS reports.

“These materials were posted to Twitter not by accident, as their authenticity is impossible to prove – due to the absence of the attribution to the exact area, and an extremely low resolution. Let alone using them as ‘photographic evidence’,” Igor Konashenkov, the official representative of the ministry, stated.

“Pictures” like this, the general continued, “have also been provided by Kiev representatives as an excuse for the usage of heavy artillery and other weaponry by the Ukrainian army – against the country’s civilian population.”

Why didn't the State Department bring this out in a big press conference?  The press would eat it up, and indeed the press did swallow the tweet hook line and sinker.  NPR this morning repeated it as the latest news story about Ukraine.  It is getting more blatant that our media picks up press releases and tweets and makes them the main story without even checking.

This morning's propaganda has exceeded laughable levels.

I'd say that the West is more desperate than ever to start another war, most likely to "save" the dollar and the control it provides to the western oligarchy at essentially zero cost.

The East has time on their side. A million or so freezing Europeans will make sanctions go away. As the demand for dollars to settle international contracts continues to fall, the tidal wave of inflation the US has been exporting (Panama, etc...) will come rushing back. Although mitigated by low demand and declining wages in discretionary goods and services, the initial effects are already being felt by Main Street in essentials (water, food, shelter, electrical power, fuel, etc..) and taxes.

Considering that the East's attempts at diplomacy and reason have been tossed aside by a arguably hysterical West. The East may soon realize that an irrational West is more of a threat than entertaining irritant and eliminate the West's ability to meddle.

The West, in their usual "next quarter's profits" mindset, may think they are starting a long "regionally limited" war to save the dollar and increase employment while providing corporate welfare to it's military-industrial-security complex.

The East, thinking of what is best for their children and grandchildren, strategy may be to "win the battle before going to the battlefield" and eliminate the source of the Western Oligarchs power - no cost US Dollars; by making the US Dollar worthless.

It really sucks to realize that being a productive US citizen makes me one of the "bad guys" in this comedic tragedy. Taxes paid given to a foreign nation slaughtering children in Gaza, taxes paid for domestic government thugs to kill suspects, dogs and incinerate infants, taxes paid going to bribe foreign officials, etc... Vomit. We may have been the "good guys" at some point in our history, but ignorance, propaganda, whitewash and spin can not remove the blood stains from our hands today.

The only thing to do is limit individual production to the absolute minimum until the Western Oligarchs (crony-capitalists and their political minions) are defeated and hope that a peaceful and productive republic can be rebuilt from our ashes.

America has surrendered its sovereignty to the internationalists.

Navi Pillay is a feminist and a racist with a gender ideology. Americans will get no better justice than the force that delivers it; in this case the judge and jury have already picked the guilty (Putin). And to administer the charges, there can be no less just “judge” than this one.

Pillay was nominated by Nelson Mandela in 1995, the year after the African National Congress came to power, to serve on the High Court of South Africa. As judge of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda she is “best remembered for her role in the landmark trial of Jean-Paul Akayesu, which established that rape and sexual assault could constitute acts of genocide.”

She faithfully served a man whose race-based employment regime specifically targeted whites and expropriated white-owned property without compensation, while nationalizing key industries owned by Whites.

It is appropriate to her idea of “freedom” that as High Commissioner of the UN she signed a document "BORN FREE AND EQUAL", a document on sexual orientation and gender identity in international human rights. Pillay also voiced support for a gay rights resolution in the UNHRC, which was approved in 2011.

Mandela's and Pillay's Lenin-like communist policies have resulted in scenes of skilled and highly educated Whites living in third-world South Africa.

The Pro-Afrikaans Action Group accuses the international press (heavily Jewish) of playing a key role in the process. As for the extermination of Whites in South Africa both the press and Pillay remain largely silent.

Perhaps worst of all, Pillay has her law degree from Jewish-dominated Harvard University.  "Her contribution to the 2001 Durban Conference on racism, the Goldstone report, and her steering of the UN Human Rights Council, have been criticized as unjust.
