MH17 case in court: Russian official reveals Ukrainian BUK missile deployment

In the International Court of Justice in the Hague, in the court testimony about the MH17 Dutch tragedy, a Russian official revealed how Ukraine deployed 17 BUK missile launchers to eastern Ukraine. Information from the cout hearing is reported by the Free West Media.

The extent of Ukrainian BUK missile deployments in eastern Ukraine on the day that Flight MH17 was shot down in Donbass in July 2014 was revealed by Ilya Rogachyov, a Russian Foreign Ministry official. Rogachyov presented evidence to the International Court of Justice in The Hague, where Ukraine is bringing a case against Russia.

The Russian authorities have for the first time revealed Ukraine’s deployment of these BUK missile systems, after satellite photos of some of these launchers were made public earlier.

“It is noteworthy that in the summer of 2014 Ukraine’s 156th air defence regiment armed with BUK-M1 systems was in the area of the conflict. The regiment’s command centre and the first unit were in the area of Avdeyevka, near Donetsk, the second unit was near Mariupol, and the third, near Lugansk. All in all the regiment had 17 BUK-M1 systems at its disposal. All were identical to the one the JIT identified as the weapon that downed the air liner,” said Ilya Rogachyov.
