    The Russian Defense Ministry’s spokesman Igor Konashenkov told the media that videos showing the movement of a BUK missile system from Russia to Ukraine, presented by the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) were fake. The Joint Investigation Team (JIT) investigating the crash is comprised of representatives from the Netherlands, Australia, Belgium, Malaysia and Ukraine, but not Russia.

    The Ministry presented a detailed analysis of these videos as well as proof of their fabrication.

    Not only a damning analysis of the fake movements by the BUK, but also an audio recording proving Ukraine’s complicity in the Malaysian Airlines disaster were presented.

    General Konashenkov said the audio recording of a conversation between Ukrainian military servicemen is from 2016, made during the Rubezh-2016 exercise in the Odessa Region and published in the Ukrainian mainstream media.

    “We’ll fucking fuck up another Malaysian Boeing,” one of the Ukrainian military servicemen said in the conversation.

    The missile used to shoot down the passenger plane killing everyone on board, was made in the town of Dolgoprudny. The weapon was then delivered to a military unit deployed to Ukraine and was never brought back to Russia, according to the Chief of the Russian Defense Ministry’s Missile and Artillery Department Lieutenant General Nikolai Parshin.

    In fact, the missile fragments presented by the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) display these incriminating numbers of the missile’s nozzle and engine. “Once we had the nozzle and engine numbers, we were able to find out the missile’s number,” he explained.

    “There are documents in the archives of the Dolgoprudny Research Institute, which made it possible to find out the missile’s tail number. It came out that the missile was assembled on December 24, 1986, and delivered by rail to the military unit number 20/152, officially named the 223rd Air Defense Missile Brigade. It was deployed to the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic’s Ternopol Region, which was part of the Subcarpathian Military District,” Parshin said.

    The doomed flight of a Boeing-777 was en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, but shot down on July 17, 2014, over Ukraine’s eastern region of Donetsk. The crash killed 298 people.

    The JIT claimed in May that “the Buk-TELAR that was used to down MH17, originates from the 53rd Anti-Aircraft Missile brigade… a unit of the Russian army from Kursk in the Russian Federation.” But the parts were actually not from Kursk it appears. Twitter users mocked the JIT’s earlier assertions.

    Soon after the JIT statement in May, Australia and the Netherlands issued a statement saying that they “hold Russia responsible for its part in the downing of flight MH17.” The two countries warned that the case could be submitted to an international court at the time.

    Russia’s Defense Ministry has rejected the allegations and said that none of the missile systems belonging to the Russian Armed Forces had ever been taken abroad.

    Dutch reporter Joost Niemoller called the mainstream media response after the news broke “really stupid” after RTL complained that a “Russian factory can not be correct because it’s the Russian administration.”

    Konashenkov noted that Ukraine has failed to provide radar data from its stations to the Dutch investigators and that archive documents from the Ukrainian unit should be probed. He said strict rules govern weapons systems, and that means that such documents should still be stored in Ukraine.

    Bullying and harassment at Sweden’s new Gender Equality Agency

    Sweden is often synonymous with feminist fanaticism. The country's Gender Equality Agency was opened in January this year and is thus one of its newest agencies.

It seems the agency's disastrous workplace culture is related to its staunchly feminist leadership. There is not a single man in the "equal" management group.
