The Russian Public Has a Totally Different Understanding of What Happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 17

Did you know Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was full of corpses when it took off from Amsterdam? Did you know that, for some darkly inexplicable reason, on July 17, MH17 moved off the standard flight path that it had taken every time before, and moved north, toward rebel-held areas outside Donetsk? Or that the dispatchers summoned the plane lower just before the crash? Or that the plane had been recently reinsured? Or that the Ukrainian army has air defense systems in the area? Or that it was the result of the Ukrainian military mistaking MH17 for Putin’s presidential plane, which looks strangely similar?

Did you know that the crash of MH17 was all part of an American conspiracy to provoke a big war with Russia?

Well, it’s all true—at least if you live in Russia, because this is the Malaysia Airlines crash story that you’d be seeing.

As the crisis surrounding the plane crash deepens and as calls for Vladimir Putin to act grow louder, it’s worth noting that they’re not really getting through to Putin’s subjects. The picture of the catastrophe that the Russian people are seeing on their television screens is very different from that on screens in much of the rest of the world, and the discrepancy does not bode well for a sane resolution to this stand-off.

Such BS is why 80% of Russians support Putin and want to go back to communism

Putin is as dangerous for his nation as was Stalin who some estimate had killed some 40,000,000 people in the USSR

This comes as no surprise to me.

I was friends with a Saudi. He and his friends honestly believed that prisoners in Israel were used for medical testing and also had their organs harvested. They even pointed me to websites to show the proof.

So to hear the Russia is manipulating the news, probably no more shocking than anything you'd hear on MSNBC.

I just checked and

Neither report such a thing.

They did say it's the Ukraine that shot it down and the USA sucks.

Don't be naive. Our media is just as one-sided as theirs. We are fed whatever our state propagandists want us to hear.

The only ones to really blame are Malaysian Airlines for being so stupid that they would allow their planes to fly over a war zone.


As times go more info comes out.
I heard that this plane and few other had 2 fighter plane escorting them thru that airspace.
With one on each wing the pilot felt safe.
Ground radar comes on and fighter pilots get warning light blinking.
They take evasive action and get clear of the big plane.
Once rocket was released it aims for the engines and blows one up.
Cockpit recorder could present the communication or NSA files.

Flame me if I am wrong, but, It sounds like Russia uses the same spin doctors that we do.

Gotta laugh It's all we have left.

How is escorting passeneger jets with military jets going to help anything?

Obvisously, it didn't.


They might have even attracted the attack defining the big plane as a high value target worthy of an escort.
