A group of investigators calling themselves “MH17 Inquiry” have just released a video that claims the famous “July17/18” video shot in the town of Zugres, in Donbass, showing a BUK leaving the town, was actually shot on July 5.
If true this would entirely discredit and disprove claims made by Eliot Higgins and others, that this video was filmed on July 17/18 and shows the BUK that allegedly brought down MH17.
The video, which can be seen above, is presented as the first part of a series that will “avoid the politics and cuts straight to the facts.” In it a resident of Zugres is interviewed and claims he is the author of the famous video clip showing a BUK on a trailer being driven past an apartment block. He says:
I filmed the video on July 5. It was a weekend, and I remember it was early lunchtime, between 11am and 1pm – around that time.
The short film also claims that when the BUK was filmed the town was occupied by the Ukrainian forces and that it can be seen being driven away only hours before Zugres fell to the forces of the DPR.
OffG is in no position to confirm or deny any of this at the moment. We are sharing it in hopes of gaining more insights and information.
