“The data we have allow us to state that the plane Boeing 777 was shot down by the Donetsk terrorists with the use of anti-missile system Buk M, which was transferred from Russia’s territory”, the State Security Service said in a statement.
Here is a timeline of all movements of Buks on Ukraine’s territory, as known by Ukraine’s security service.
June 29 – Terrorist groups in eastern Ukraine boast on social networks that they have in their possession Buk anti-missile systems, capable of hitting airborne targets at the altitude of 25 kilometers – higher than cruise altitude of commercial airlines. MH17, which was shot down on July 17, was flying at 10 kilometers. However, the Buks in possession of terrorists were broken and unusable, which had been admitted by their representatives.
