Quote from limited : 'Responding to news of Russian convoy destroyed by elite Ukranian militia. mmm. Someone is making a lot of money out of this.' Considering the propaganda, half truths and downright lies put out by western media I would take that item with a very large pinch of salt. The idea of the Russians sending over a small lightly armoured convoy to be knocked off when they have shown so much restraint and diplomatic skills up till now beggars belief. Pathetic stuff from Kiev and the 2 Brit reporters - no wonder Lavrov laughed it off. Certainly true though that money is being made by 'the usual suspects'....
If the plane was hit by BUK rocket then the plane felt into pieces in the fraction of second and no duplicate of system would help. But there is one of older senator in USA saying that USA with constant monitoring of this area by satelites is simply hiding something, and some people from the crash area are claiming that two fighters were seen at the scene
I used to fit, test and download those accident data recorders and cockpit voice recorders. The adr will only show system failures as they happen. No indication of a weapon strike can be positively shown. It will show nose, tail, port, starboard, spine or belly faults that can rapidly escalate, especially with multiple system failures. Now if a single weapon was fired, you should be able to narrow down the impact area. The aircraft has more than one engine and most systems are duplicated, triplicate etc and it can still fly with a catastrophic failure. Now, if you want to make sure, you'd have to hit it more than once. While this was happening the pilots voice recording on the cvr would show them responding to failures. Unless, they were neutralised first.
Was starting to look better, Russia and EU countries started to talk of removing sanctions. Then some British reporters (suddenly decided to do some reporting) tweeted yesterday, they saw some russian military vehicles near the border. Today, the very reliable Ukranian government has said, it has destroyed a Russian military convoy in Ukraine. Amazing timing. Where's the pictures of the destroyed convoy plus bodies? Or, is this just more bull.
today, maybe on the news that Evraz - controlled by Daddy secured loan £250 mln from few Western banks without any problems.One of the Russian annalists based in Moscow said that there was no worries about sanctions as Evraz is listed in London with some assets in Russia so business as usual.
