The destruction of MH17, Russia published a "response" to the investigation of the Netherlands

The destruction of MH17, Russia published a "response" to the investigation of the Netherlands
http://hvylya.net/news/digest/krushenie-mn17-v-rossii-opublikovali-otvet-na-rassledovanie-niderlandov.html

====
More of the same garbage from Russia.
No other country in the world has published a "response" to the report on MH17. Why does Russia need to do it?
This simply confirms Russia's guilt.
The response - nothing. The same rubbish they produced in 2015.
Further stuff from the Russian missile manufacturers - but what else would you expect from them? They have to do Putin's bidding.
And from the start they attack Bellingcat. They do not like Bellingcat at all. For obvious reasons.
Unbiased, clear, evidence based reporting.

Don't expect Russia to admit to shooting down MH17 for at least 20 years.
Russia working on the basis that,
if you deny something enough times, some idiots will believe you.

Kuchma on Putin's goal in Donbas

Kuchma on Putin's goal in Donbas

Elections in the rebel-held territories will destroy Ukraine. Therefore, any decentralization and special status for Donbas are out of the question, Ukraine’s representative on the Minsk group of negotiators Leonid Kuchma said. “Putin’s main goal is to hold the elections in Donbas, get rid of the territory and let Ukraine burden the destroyed land. The rebels have ruined all infrastructure and put Donbas on the verge of an environmental disaster endangering the entire Europe.

Billions of dollars are needed to repair the damage. If Ukraine takes on this burden, it will be destroyed,” Kuchma said, speaking to Interfax-Ukrayina Sept. 15.

Russia doesn’t need Donbas with all its problems. Putin needs Donbas to rock the boat in Ukraine, Kuchma said.

The key word is "immediately". Which IMO, they want special status to be given, sooner or later. Don't trust those French politicians. They'll sell their souls to ANYONE!
