Debunk claim:

Repeating a one-year old disinformation. The tweet is not from this January, but from January 2016. // The Dutch intelligence services never stated that there were no separatist BUK launchers in Eastern Ukraine, and they never claimed that only Ukraine could have brought MH17 down: http://www.stopfake.org/nl/fake-internationale-experts-houden-kiev-verantwoordelijk-voor-het-neerhalen-van-de-mh17/ // It is very obvious that the plane was shot down by a Russian BUK: https://euvsdisinfo.eu/debunking-in-primetime/
