SHAFAQNA- Russian experts have claimed Malaysian Boeing MH17 was shot down by a Ukrainian warplane and not a ground to air missile.
This follows the release of ‘leaked’ satellite images which show a missile streaking towards the passenger plane, produced tonight by Russia’s main state broadcaster.
It was claimed that the space pictures were from a British or US satellite.
The flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur was travelling over the conflict-hit region when it disappeared from radar.
A total of 283 passengers, including 80 children, and 15 crew members were killed.
TV presenter Mikhail Leontiev claimed that the mysterious source who provided the images concluded they showed ‘how a Mig-29 fighter plane destroys the Boeing passenger plane’.
The West has repeatedly suggested the plane was shot down by pro-Moscow rebels using a Russian-made BUK missile system.
