Pravda Tells A Doozy Of A Lie

Pravda means “Truth” in Russian.   But not according to their latest published fib. Actually, fib is too generous a word, it is a bold, blatant, absolutely boldly fabricated lie.  A doozy!

Just published in the last 30 minutes, I almost couldn’t believe the story when I clicked on it. “New secret documents hold Ukraine responsible for MH17 plane crashPravda Report 12:06

A Russian newspaper obtained copies of secret documents of the Security Bureau of Ukraine (SBU) about special operations to destroy evidence of mass murder in the sky over the Donbass on July 17, 2014. The Sovershenno Secretno newspaper (translates as “Top Secret”) conducts an investigation into the downing of the Malaysian passenger Boeing over Ukraine.

The copies of the documents that the newspaper obtained – orders, coded telegrams and plans – were written on official letterheads of the Ukrainian Security Service. According to the newspaper, Ukrainian President Poroshenko and his generals should be put on trial in The Hague as war criminals.

The person who handed the documents to the newspaper, said that it was part of his very long and exhausting work. “In Ukraine, I have a few friends, who are fed up with the fact that other people wipe their feet on them. They are two-faced guys: they want those bastards to be held accountable for what they did, but at the same time, they want a security cushion and offer to buy those documents,” the anonymous source of information said.

“Believe me, I just want those bastards from the SBU to get what they deserve,” he added.

The newspaper published copies of four criminal orders of the Security Bureau of Ukraine. The information that the documents contain suggests the following:

– the new Kiev authorities  – President Poroshenko and his generals – are entirely responsible for the shoot-down of the Malaysian aircraft;
– Ukraine’s military aviation was involved in the plane crash;
– to cover the traces of the monstrous crime, the SBU had been conducting special operations since the end of July 2014 to destroy the facts of the special operation that pointed to the presence of combat aircraft on combat missions on July 17, 2014.

Wrapped up in one nice, neat little package, this “disclosure” gives “damning” evidence of a coverup, calls for President Poroshenko to be arrested, provides motive for the disclosure after the coverup, and it’s all nicely printed on SBU letterhead.

Sure it is.

The old saying, “if it seems too good to be true, it probably is” applies.

After the official investigation into the shootdown concluded Russia shot down the plane, Russia countered with 11 alternative theories. That didn’t work.

When Bellingcat did open source investigations and located the actual Buk that shot down MH17, the crew, and the responsible chain of command, Russia pointed a finger elsewhere.

The West had one story and all the evidence supported it, and didn’t point anywhere else.  Russia had 11 alternative theories and all the ‘evidence’ was thinly veiled fabrications, and nobody believed them.

Is this the truth?  Well, it’s Pravda, which means the truth, but none of this ‘evidence’ has ever surfaced before, none of the so-called witnesses have come forward before, and this appears far too “alternative” to possibly be true.

In other words, it’s not pravda (lowercase), it’s a ложь.  A lie.
