Investigative team confirmed authenticity of dash-cam video showing Buk being hauled by a Volvo truck

International journalist investigative team Bellingcat confirmed the fact of transportation of the Russian Buk missile launcher from Donetsk to Snizhne on the day Malaysian Boeing flight MH17 was shot down from the sky over Donbas, July 17, 2014.

Bellingcat experts have examined some earlier published satellite imagery and photographs from an updated Google Earth's historical satellite imagery archive made at 11:08 (local time) on July 17, 2014, showing an anti-aircraft missile system Buk being hauled by a Volvo truck through the town of Makiyivka in the direction of Snizhne.

Having compared the examined images with the dash-cam video from Makiyivka, the experts noticed that the shadow cast by the Buk and the other objects, as well as the vehicles at the parking lot, match.

"With the updated satellite imagery, there is yet more confirmation that separatist forces transported a Buk from Donetsk to Snizhne in eastern Ukraine on the day of the downing of Flight MH17," reads the article published on Bellingcat website.

Last week Bellingcat had published new satellite imagery confirming Russian invasion in Ukraine.
