Explosive testimony reveals Ukraine’s involvement in MH17 disaster

A former top agent in Ukraine’s Security Service (SBU), has given explosive testimony suggesting that the Ukrainian government was involved in the 2014 downing of the MH-17 passenger plane.

    All 283 passengers and 15 flight crew members on board died in the crash, which has been blamed on Russia by Ukraine’s government, the United States and the mainstream Western media.

    Vasily Prozorov has meanwhile sought asylum in Russia. He also accused the United States and the United Kingdom of training an SBU division that returned to Ukraine to conduct terrorist attacks in the war-torn Donbass region.

    Prozorov’s identity was kept secret until the press conference. He introduced himself at the media briefing as a former SBU agent from 1999 to 2018. After the Maidan shooting in Kiev 2014, he contacted Russian intelligence and began working undercover in the central office of the SBU.

    His most shocking revelation was about the 2014 downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17, or MH-17, which was almost immediately blamed on Russia by the post-coup Ukrainian government, the United States and much of the mainstream Western media. According to Prozorov however, the Ukrainian government was an “accomplice to the Malaysian MH-17 flight disaster.”

    He says he quickly became suspicious of the Ukrainian leadership and voiced his unequivocal opinion that President Poroshenko and his press-service had had prior knowledge of the air disaster.

    “Secondly, hostilities had been underway for several months by then, but the airspace over the area was not closed.”

    When he wanted to learn more about the circumstances of the disaster, a senior SBU officer replied: “Don’t poke your nose into this business, if you don’t wish to have problems.” Despite this discouraging comment, “some information leaked out in the end, though”.

    He concluded: “In my opinion, there were two men involved – the current deputy chief of the Ukrainian presidential staff Valery Kondratyuk and chief of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry’s intelligence directorate, Vasyl Burba.”

    A Joint Investigation Team concluded in May last year in an interim report that the missile launcher which had fired the missile that downed the plane might have been brought from Russia’s 53rd air defense missile brigade, but Russia dismissed the JIT charges.

    The Defense Ministry said that not a single air defense system of the Russian armed forces had ever crossed the Russian-Ukrainian border, Russian news agency TASS reported.

    Investigations by late American investigative journalist Robert Parry detailed how the “independent” MH-17 investigation was almost completely dependent on information from Ukraine’s SBU. According to Parry this control “suggests that the SBU also would steer the JIT away from any evidence that might implicate a unit of the Ukrainian military in the shoot-down”.

    One of Parry’s sources even maintained that the CIA had, like Prozorov, found evidence that Ukraine’s government had indeed been “an accomplice” to the MH-17 incident.

    “A source who was briefed by US intelligence analysts told me that the CIA’s conclusion pointed toward a rogue Ukrainian operation involving a hard-line oligarch with the possible motive of shooting down Russian President Vladimir Putin’s official plane returning from South America that day, with similar markings as MH-17. The source said a Ukrainian warplane ascertained that the plane was not Putin’s but the attack went ahead anyway, with the assumption that the tragedy would be blamed on the pro-Russian rebels or on Russia directly,” Parry said.

    The former SBU officer Prozorov also detailed how the post-coup SBU had established secret prisons where prominent dissidents of the US-backed government were interrogated, tortured and killed. One of these prisons, located at an airstrip in Mariupol, was nicknamed “the Library” and its prisoners were called “books”.

    The black-site prisons and other areas, were often “led” by foreign advisers from the United States and the United Kingdom. Notably, the SBU blocked UN efforts to probe the extent of this practice.

    Prozorov informed Russia about the whereabouts of Russian Life News journalists detained near Slavyansk in May 2014 by Ukrainian military personnel.

    The leaders of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics became victims of special operations, and not internal conflicts. “I am not omniscient, but concerning Motorola and Givi I am 100 percent sure that it was an operation of the special fifth department of the SBU and the special operations forces (SOF) of the Armed Forces of Ukraine,” he explained.
