On April 4 investigative search network Bellingcat published material about the photos uploaded by Gredil Mykhailo, a chaplain for the Ukrainian Armed Forces, on July 15, 2014, showing a Ukrainian Buk missile launcher in a field that appeared to function as a Ukrainian military camp.

In the first paragraph the investigators state that this Buk missile launcher was not located in eastern Ukraine, but instead in the Poltava Oblast in central Ukraine, hundreds of kilometers from the front lines of the war.

However not all media got the Bellingcat message correctly.

Russian media reported that Western experts proved that Ukrainian Buk was in Donbas. 

Bellingcat coordinator Aric Toler was quite harsh in his comments, calling the news by The Apostrophe a trash, worth of websites like Anti-Fascist.

In his Twitter he also states that many outlets have later changed their titles to be correct.
