The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe is amazed by the disinformation spread by the Russian authorities about the sale of the MH17 flight in 2014 year.
On Thursday, June 23, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) adopted a resolution acknowledging that the Malaysian Boeing 777 flight MH17 was shot down by a Russian missile in 2014. Moscow was asked to officially apologize to the relatives of the victims of the plane crash for spreading misinformation.
This is discussed on the organization's website.
On the basis of credible evidence, PACE considers “the most convincing scenario” according to which the plane was shot down by a Buk missile provided to military units controlled by the Russian Federation. At the same time, versions that a Ukrainian SU-25 or MiG-29 fighter shot down flight MH17, or that a missile fired from territory controlled by Kyiv were to blame, have been “thoroughly refuted”.
PACE said they were shocked by the disinformation spread by the Russian authorities about the downed aircraft.
“Instead of providing reliable information to the competent investigative authorities, the Russian authorities are spreading disinformation, including consistent contradictory versions of events designed to create confusion. Russian authorities have gone so far as to provide manipulative radar, satellite and other data to cover up the truth, according to open-source intelligence published in numerous reports.
Moscow was urged to formally apologize before the relatives of the victims of the plane crash “for the pain and suffering caused by disinformation.”
Recall that the last court session on the death of passengers of the Malaysia Airlines flight shot down in the sky over the Donbass in July 2014 took place in the Netherlands.
