Infamous "July /17/18" vid of BUK in Zugres actually filmed July 5?

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.

Given the levels of detection surveillance we are led to believe exist, why are we even entertaining such ‘evidence’? All with a vested interest know exactly what happened, the murder of those aboard is part of a strategic game, an opportunity to further their own psychopathic world view. The above article does nothing but be a part of such.

The USA had full satellite surveillance of the region at the time, so have definitive evidence, yet they REFUSE to release it. If it implicated the Russians or the Novorossyan resistance do you think that they would hesitate for a second? Case closed.

“The USA had full satellite surveillance of the region at the time”
oh goodie. another internet “expert” who doesn’t understand very very basics of the limitations of surveillance satellite including their fixed orbit periods but assumes, nonsensically, that satellits are some sort of ‘always on’ google earth where you can zoom to any arbitrary point on earth in real time. no, solnechko, no. you’re wrong, and comically so.

Not surprising. My belief was always that it was far more plausibly the degenerate US-supported Kiev regime who shot down MH17 than the rebels, and if the video in question was in Kiev-controlled territory at the time it was filmed that may have facilitated the Kiev misinformationalists getting their hands on it. Elliot Higgins is certainly not to be trusted. In my opinion he is most likely working for the CIA/US State Department/Nuland. His bold misinformation regarding chemical weapons allegedly fired by the Syrian government was solidly dispelled, and the shots in question shown to have been fired by Saudi/Al Nusra-supported terrorists.
