We have ordered our media to go full retard on #MH17 today. "We still don't know what happened."

Finally, from The Economist - last sentence of the article -
Britain’s new prime minister will regret appointing Boris Johnson
... It is like putting a baboon at the wheel of the Rolls Royce. Sure, the steering wheel, clutch and accelerator will keep the baboon happy and busy. But the price in collateral damage could be high.

Two years after the crash in Donbas: causes have not yet been identified [Russian source!!]
... fraud and outright false data from the Dutch investigators, ..., stubborn disregard of information from Russia ....
Why is Ukraine a full member of the joint investigative team?...: Ukraine has all opportunities to forge evidence, ...

The Russian media still in a state of denial over MH17.
A substantial article, but -
no mention of Putin,
no mention of the Kursk 53rd battery sent to Donbass,
no mention of a Buk,
no mention of Bellingcat.

Sick - lying, deceitful - journalism. Shaun Walker's buddies in Moscow. 300 dead. This is really sick.
Walker produced a similar headline in the Putin lovin Guardian last year - 09 July, 2015
One year on, there is no conclusive proof of who was responsible for shooting down the plane, though most evidence points to Ukraine’s separatist forces

Even the phrase "Ukraine's separatist forces" - denies Russian involvement. Most people call Walker's "DNR guys" Russian separatists, NOT Ukrainian separatists.  
Walker is scum, and very clever in the way he manipulates information. After all, he started his career with Russiaprofile = RIA Novosti.

For some real, analytical journalism, see

MH17 – The Open Source Investigation, Two Years Later

....Based on Bellingcat’s online open source investigation we believe the following events occurred:

Between June 23-25 2014 the 53rd Anti-Aircraft Missile Brigade transported vehicles within Russia to positions close to the Russian border with Ukraine. This includes Buk 332, later sighted in Ukraine on July 17 and 18 2014.
On July 17 2014 Buk 332 left Donetsk in the morning loaded onto a low-loader, travelling eastwards through separatist held territory, until it reached the town of Snizhe in the early afternoon.
After arriving in Snizhne Buk 332 unloaded and drove under its own town south out of the town.
Buk 332 arrived at a field south of Snizhne and fired a missile that resulted in the destruction of Flight MH17.
Buk 332 was next filmed travelling east through the separatist controlled city of Luhansk on the morning of July 18 2014.
On July 21 2014 the Russian Defence Ministry presented a series of false and fake information. This included lying about the flight path of MH17, lying about radar data, lying about the location of the July 18 2014 Luhansk video, and misdating and heavily manipulating satellite imagery,....
