The missile that downed Malaysia Airlines MH17 in July came from Russia that was set off from a Buk missile launcher also supplied by the same country to separatist rebels in Ukraine, a crowd-sourced investigation claimed.
The information on the report, called the Bellingcat project, was culled by British investigative journalist Eliot Higgins and other researchers from "publicly available published and broadcast material." The researchers combined citizen journalist and social media accounts as well as used eyewitness material and satellite images to come up with their conclusions.
Malaysia Airlines MH17 was shredded into pieces at the skies over eastern Ukraine on July 17. According to the report, the Buk missile launcher used for the operation was seen being unloaded in Snizhne at least three hours before the downing. Later, the launcher was seen driving through separatist-controlled Luhansk, but minus one missile. Snizhne is a town close to the crash site, the report said.
Gerhard Schindler, president of the BND, told a secret parliamentary committee on security affairs earlier this month that separatists had used a Russian Buk missile defense system from a Ukrainian base to fire a rocket that exploded directly next to the Malyasia Air plane, Der Spiegel reported.
In Nov 2013, Eliot Higgins "confirmed" that Syria had used chemical weapons, without noticing that it was not the Syrian government that carried out the attacks.
The Russian embassy in Berlin received an official response to note #3693 from October 27 regarding Germany’s Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND intelligence agency) President Gerhard Schindler’s allegations that local militia in eastern Ukraine shot down the Malaysia Airlines flight in July.
“The media interpretation of the report of the Federal Intelligence Service (BND) president delivered to the Bundestag Committee overseeing intelligence activities on October 8 is incomplete and arbitrarily taken out of context,” the note says.

Well, by that logic the U.S. undeniably supplied ISIS with weapons.
I like this game.
