It’s highly likely, the investigation will conclude the aircraft was downed by Russian ‘Buk’, founder of Bellingcat Eliot Higgins believes

According to Higgins, the investigation needs to find out: who was inside the ‘Buk’ when the rocket was launched against MH17, ‘Apostrof’ reports.

‘We’re confident we have solid evidence to hold 53rd Russian brigade responsible for the accident. But it’s much more difficult to prove, who exactly pushed the button’, - Higgins said.

According to Higgins, it’s pretty clear, that the investigation’s main theory is that the rocket was launched from a ‘Buk’: ‘It’s hard to say, whether the evidence will actually point to a particular ‘Buk’ in the near future, but I’m sure we provided convincing evidence for the society, that it really was ‘Buk’ 332 of the 53rd Russian brigade’, - the founder of Bellingcat assures.

Responding to the question as to how results of the official investigation would influence Donbas conflict and the world’s attitude to Russia and Vladimir Putin, Higgins said: ‘I believe, it would be hard for other countries to have something to do with the country, which caused the deaths of 298 people, lied and falsified evidence afterwards’, - Higgins stated.
