Apparently Carlos was not in Spain, and the weather he describes fits with the Ukraine the 17th
- Him saying years before (`10) he was working as Air Traffic Controller in Kiev
The airport where he supposedly worked for several years told us at the time that all of their air traffic controllers are Ukranian, and that in any case they have never employed any Spaniard for that or any other task.
- Apparently, despite the cover up by Spain and Ukraine, you actual can have dual citizen in the Ukraine
“As you know, dual citizenship is prohibited in Ukraine. It is just not clear why the authorities and immigration service, as well as courts, prosecutors, and Interior Ministry are not fighting this phenomenon since it is obvious that it undermines the foundations of the Ukrainian statehood.
I would say, that makes an actual rather strong case, much stronger as what we have been fed to believe up until now.
The UK’s media regulator has assessed whether RT’s coverage of the MH17 plane crash was biased following several viewer complaints, and hasn’t found any problems that merited investigation, nor any breach of standards.
The original grievances concerned RT’s July 17-22, 2014 coverage of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 crash in eastern Ukraine, and the subsequent speculation about possible culprits in the downing of the plane. After careful review of 30 hours of off-air recordings, Ofcom concluded the complaints “didn’t raise issues warranting investigation.” RT has been cleared of all charges of insufficient impartiality and factuality in these reports.
The complaint against RT, which was investigated and found by the watchdog to not breach broadcasting rules, centred on the use of graphic imagery of bodies at the crash site, also on 17 July.
An Ofcom spokesman said: “Having reviewed the evidence, Ofcom found the BBC took steps to limit any offence caused; including apologising and ensuring the image was not shown again in later reports. As a result we consider the matter resolved.”
The regulator found RT had taken “sufficient steps to limit the potential for offence”, according to the Ofcom spokesman. “This included pixelating graphic imagery and only broadcasting it after the watershed,” Ofcom said.
Freedom of Information: Right to know request
Thank you for your request for information, which we received on 19 March 2014 and have considered under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (‘the Act’). You asked whether Ofcom had received “any complaints about bias on RT (Russia Today) in regards to Crimea since 1 March 2014”.
Ofcom’s Broadcast Bulletin, published every fortnight on our website, includes the latest decisions about the complaints we have received, including those complaints Ofcom has assessed and decided not to pursue because they did not raise issues warranting
investigation, and those complaints which Ofcom has escalated for investigation. Issues of the Broadcast Bulletin are available via the following link to our website:
Page 85 of Issue 250 of the Bulletin, published on 17 March 2014, reported that Ofcom had launched an investigation into various news programmes on various dates on Russia Today. With regard to further detail of those cases, or information on any complaints not already
published in the Bulletin, we are not able to disclose this as this is exempt under section 44 of the Act.
Section 44 of the Act prevents organisations releasing information if another act has said that it shouldn’t, in this case the Communications Act 2003. So that Ofcom can operate effectively it needs to be able to handle and share confidential correspondence with the businesses it regulates. If Ofcom was to make all this correspondence public it would undermine the confidence that regulated industries have that they can be frank and candid without the fear that these views will be published.
Section 393 of the Communications Act anticipated this and prevents Ofcom releasing information if the information is about a particular business, unless it helps Ofcom to carry out its duties.
For further information on section 44 of the Act, please see:
It is likely that other exemptions would apply. Our most recent Broadcast Bulletins, since your request on 19 March were published on 31
March and 14 April 2014. Once Ofcom has concluded its investigation, the outcome will be published in the Broadcast
I hope this information is of assistance.

RT documentary about MH17 with a Su-25 flying over 10km.
Dutch intelligence services AIVD and MIVD walk on a leash of the US NSA. They are "extremely docile" and are seen as 'subordinates'. That tells Edward Snowden, who worked for the US National Security Agency and the CIA, in an interview with the newspaper. Snowden: "The Dutch work for the Americans. They do what we tell them what to do. They are not appreciated for their abilities, but because of the free passage they offer. Before they used the NSA. "
On July 14th last year, three days before the disaster with flight MH17, there was a meeting in Kiev. During this meeting, diplomats were briefed on the security situation in the Ukraine. For weeks the Second Chamber has been trying to get more information regarding this meeting from the First Chamber, but to no avail.
Prime minister Mark Rutte on Friday said he would not agree to a request by opposition parties to publish a report of a diplomatic meeting in Ukraine, just days prior to the downing of Malaysian Airways flight MH17.
A senior Dutch diplomat was at the meeting and there have been claims that Ukraine officials warned about the dangers of using eastern Ukrainian airspace. During the meeting diplomats were told that a Ukrainian transport plane was shot down by a Russian missile.
