Missile launcher allegedly used to shoot down MH17 likely to be back in Russia

 A U.S. official has reportedly said that the missile launcher that is suspected to have been used by pro-Russian rebels in Ukraine to bring down Malaysia Air flight MH17 is probably back in Russia.

Below is how FOX News reports…
The official said the missile that brought down the plane, killing all 298 people on board, was fired from Schnidze, a town in eastern Ukraine.

The senior U.S. official said that a case was being build, adding that it is "damn near bulletproof" at this point of time.

The report further said that a senior U.S. defense official confirmed the SA-11 launcher used in the attack was missing two of its four missiles.

Earlier, the Ukrainian Interior Ministry released a video, showing the kind of missile launcher that could have shot down the passenger plane in east Ukraine, spotted 15 miles away from the crash site. Continue...

 There are only certain types of weaponry capable of destroying a Boeing 777 plane, and that includes a Buk missile launcher, Mirror.co.uk reported.

The video footage that claims to show a truck carrying a Buk missile launcher they say was used to fire on the plane with two of its four missiles apparently missing.

The ministry said the footage was filmed by a police surveillance squad this morning as the truck was headed to the city of Krasnodon, towards the Russian border.


The crash site was near the Ukrainian village of Hrabove, while the video was reportedly taken near the town of Snizhne about 15 miles east.
