Dutch prosecutors have recorded new telephone conversations proving that the Boeing-777, flying to Kuala Lumpur marked MH17 flight, was shot down over Donbas in 2014 from the Buk missile system, which the suspects spoke about. It is reported by Yevropeiska Pravda, referring to the Dutch NRC.
During the trial in the case of MH17, according to media reports, telephone conversations are by far the most specific evidence against three Russian and one Ukrainian suspects.
A new record shows that pro-Russian separatists thought they shot down a Ukrainian fighter jet.
At 16:48, soon after the crash of MH17 in eastern Ukraine, suspect Leonid Kharchenko calls suspect Sergey Dubinsky. "We are already there. We have already brought down Sushka (Su aircraft - ed.)," says Kharchenko.
Later in the evening, at 19:52, Dubinsky calls the suspect Oleg Pulatov and asks: "Tell me, did our Buk shoot or not?" Pulatov replied: “Buk shot down Sushka after Sushka shot down Boeing”.
After that, Dubinsky called the main suspect, Igor Girkin, who headed the so-called Armed Forces of the unrecognized Donetsk People's Republic.
The prosecutor’s office reminded that no one shot down any other planes except MH17 on July 17th.
Earlier the prosecutor in court hearings in MH17 case stated that three Russian citizens and one Ukrainian - Girkin, Pulatov, Dubinsky and Kharchenko - were accused of playing a leading, organizing and supporting role in the deployment of the Buk air defense system, from which on June 17, 2014, a Malaysian plane was shot down in the sky over Donbas.
