During the investigation of Malaysia Airlines Boeing-777 downing the law
enforcement and intelligence bodies established that terrorists and militants have cynically planned the terrorist
attack at Aeroflot civil aircraft, AFL-2074 Moscow-Larnaca, which was flying
over the territory of Ukraine at that moment. Hereof informed the Head of the
Security Service of Ukraine Mr. Valentyn Nalyvaichenko during the briefing
He underlined – the crime was planned as a ground for bringing of Russian
troops into Ukraine, that is – CASUS BELLI for the Russian military invasion.
According to the official Ukrainian data, June 17, 2014, at the mentioned
time two regular international flights were operating over the territory of
Ukraine following the filed requests for aircraft clearance – MAS17 plane of
the Malaysia Airlines and AFL-2074 one of Aeroflot.
The routes of the mentioned international flights were approaching the sky
over Donetsk. At 16:09 in the area of Novomykolaivka town the routes of the mentioned
flights crossed. It is worth noting that the flight specifications of the
aircrafts were almost identical – the Malaysian aircraft flew at a height of 10,100 m at a speed 909 km/h, while the
Russian one - at a height of 10,600
m at a speed 768 km/h.
At 16:20 from the area of ‘Pervomaiske’ village, north-east from Donetsk,
near the town of Torez, terrorists shot down the Malaysian jet, which then
crashed near Grabove, Donetsk region.
According to the intercepted and
published data about the ‘Buk” missile system, the terrorists had received an
order to place the system near ‘Pervomaiskoe’ village, V. Nalyvaichenko
mentioned. The namesake village is located about 20 km to the north-east from
The terrorists (most of them are not locals, but the Russian mercenaries) misrecognized
the namesake villages and moved the other way, the SSU Head said. The odd route
of the ‘Buk’ missile system on the territory of Ukraine proves that fact. The
system crossed the Russia-Ukraine border in Luhansk region, then was deployed westward
to Donetsk and moved back to the border between Donetsk and Luhansk regions
By setting up the ‘Buk’ missile system in ‘Pervomaiske’ village located to
the west from Donetsk and taking into consideration the military specifications
of the weapon, the terrorists could have shot down the Russian civilian
jetliner with its further crashing on the Ukrainian territory controlled by the
In that case Russia would receive an opportunity to accuse the Ukrainian
authorities of downing the Russian plane, assaulting the Russian citizens and
would use this irresistible proof for its invasion into Ukraine.
Russian side would need a compelling argument for such a step, for example accusation
of the Ukrainian government in mass murder of the Russian citizens.
“A peculiar cynicism appears in the fact that the terrorist act was planned just
against the peaceful, innocent Russian citizens, who were flying with their children
on vacation”, - V. Nalyvaichenko, stressed.
Intelligence data proved that on July 18 the militants have already waited
for the introduction of Russian Armed forces into the territory of Ukraine. The
Russian side had been giving grounding for such developments for the several
previous days. The Russian Mass Media had massively published information about
the alleged shelling of the RF territory from the Ukrainian side.
