East StratCom disinformation claim:

The credibility of the Dutch commission in charge of investigating the MH17 disaster is questionable, as is the plausibility of the evidence of the plane being shot down by a BUK AA-rocket launcher brought to Eastern Ukraine from Russia. Eyewitnesses must have been bribed.

Debunk claim:

In a notorious tactic, the article tries to present one of the “alternative” versions made up by pro-Kremlin media to distort the objective facts pointing to Russian involvement: http://us11.campaign-archive1.com/?u=cd23226ada1699a77000eb60b&id=3020e3d627 // The article also tries to challenge the credibility of the messanger rather than the message.
