Russian MH17 'Satellite Photo' Debunked By Internet Sleuths
A state-owned Russian broadcaster's attempted to blame Ukraine for the downing of Flight MH17, using a poorly photoshopped photo.By Matt Picht | November 15, 2014
Vladimir Putin is getting the cold shoulder in Australia at the annual G20 summit this weekend. Russia's involvement in the Ukraine crisis, and their alleged role in the downing of Flight MH17, has made the country an international pariah in recent months.
AUSTRALIAN PRIME MINISTER TONY ABBOTT VIA ABC: "Look, I am going to shirtfront Mr. Putin. ... Australians were murdered. They were murdered by Russian-backed rebels using Russian equipment. We are very unhappy about this."
So perhaps it shouldn't come as a surprise that state-run Russian broadcaster Channel One TV released what it called "sensational new evidence" on the eve of the summit, attempting to cast the blame for the lethal crash on the Ukrainian military.
