Allow me to help you comrade.
I have never understood the blatant lies coming out of the Russian military or their proxies when they claim it was Ukrainian forces who shot down the airliner. I can only presume they believe people around the world are as gullible as the average Russian, and possibly just as drunk, because they have never answered any of the following questions.
>> All these questions have been comprehensively answered. I will repeat the answers here.
If Ukraine was the only one who had helicopters and jets, why would they need anti-aircraft weapons against farmers and miners (the term Putin has used to refer to his troops in Ukraine)?
>> In order to cast false accusations on Russia, thus justifying intervention by the west in the Ukranian citizens' fight for their freedom.
If the plane was coming from the West, meaning it was flying into Ukrainian airspace from a known location, why would Ukraine, if it had anti-aircraft weapons deployed, target then shoot down an aircraft not coming from the East?
>> This question has already been answered.
How does Russia and their proxies explain the fact postings were made on known Twitter accounts and radio intercepts recorded of Russian proxies bragging about shooting down a Ukrainian jet?
>> No such postings have been made. These are part of the extravagant western propaganda campaign.
Why is it that pictures of a Buk missile system were taken near the shoot down site, the same system which was then tracked on its way back to Russia AND which had one missile missing?
>> The freedom fighters did shoot down some Ukranian military aircraft. These photos were probably of those buk launchers.
How does Russia and its proxies explain that people in the area witnessed the launch of the missile from territory under Russian control? Not just one person, but several, all pointing to the same general area?
>> Lies and propaganda
Why did Russia and its proxies prevent investigators from entering the crash site for days afterwards? What evidence were they trying to hide?
>> They were merely ensuring the safety of the remains, and making sure that this provocation could be properly recorded before western spies messed with the evidence.
If Russia or its proxies did not shoot down the civilian airliner, why did Russia veto a UN resolution to fully and openly investigate the incident? If Russia is innocent they should have been happy to have an investigation to prove their innocence.
>> The west has clearly demonstrated that it will lie and deceive in order to misrepresent Russian support for Ukranian self-determination. Such a biased western-run investigation would be used as a vehicle for further propaganda.
It is quite clear Russian troops and/or their proxies shot down a civilian airliner, then bragged about it, yet beyond all reasonable comprehension they stubbornly cling to the fantasy they are not criminally responsible. It's as if the they've learned nothing over the last 100 years since the coup.
>> It is only clear to those who are deceived by the corrupt western media.
Remember that Putin doesn't really need to convince the western audience. He cares more about convincing his home audience, and throwing enough doubt into the game to limit direct repercussions.
Russians know not to trust the news - particularly the western news which is so obviously a corrupt mouthpiece of the western governments.
The west clearly wants to impose their will on Russia (you can see the sanctions, and the falling oil prices as clear evidence of this) - but plucky Russia won't be cowed.
The western hypocrisy is simply staggering; While the west interferes in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Syria where they have no citizens, and no defensible interest, they condemn Russia for defending Russian citizens against attacks in their own land where all they want is the right to self-determination. (for example - see the democratic referendum held in Crimea).
The west (and the USA in particular) want to cripple Russia - but Russia will not be cowed. Russian citizens are smart enough to recognise that their nation is under economic and political attack, and they will not fall for the western smears and outright lies.
