MH17 broke up in mid-air due to external damage - Dutch preliminary report

MH17 broke up in mid-air due to external damage - Dutch preliminary report | Global politics | Scoop.it
The MH17 crash was a result of structural damage caused by a large number of high-energy objects that struck the Boeing from the outside, the preliminary report into the Malaysia Airlines disaster in Ukraine said.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

If according to the preliminary report, " a large number of high-energy objects that penetrated the aircraft from outside,”  caused the demise of MH17, it sems all too apparent that only the Ukrainian Suchoi in the vicinity could shoot at the Malaysian liner: nobody ever pointed at the rebels as having  hunting jets, or the Russians operating inthe high skies over Ukraine. Soon the Western media which so quickly rushed to indict Russia will have to eat their lies.
