International Investigation Group JIT (Joint Investigation Team), which is investigating Boeing MH17 disaster in July 2014, published a new photo of the Buk 332 air defense missile system made in Ukraine on the day of the aircraft being shot down. This was reported in Twitter, by the research network Bellingcat.

“The JIT has released a new photograph of Buk 332 in Ukraine on the day of the MH17 downing. We are preparing an article on the image now,” the message says.

According to the message, there is technically a 10th image, but it was taken very far away from the Buk -- a satellite image, which you can find on Google Earth. 

It is reported that among the evidence of the presence of the Russian Buk in the east of Ukraine is a video from Makiivka, Torez, Snizhne, Donetsk, the video "Paris Match" from Donetsk, a photo from Snizhne, Torez, Zuhres, and this new photo.
