Olga OKHRIMENKO, “FACTS”
In the Netherlands, was postponed until the July 3 hearing on the case of the downed Malaysian “Boeing”. On the last day before the recess the prosecution presented records of telephone conversations of the militants. Records shed light on how the terrorists were planning to get out of the story of the downed passenger liner. Prosecutors believe audio is the most convincing to date, proof of guilt of the defendants.
Transcript of telephone conversations leading Dutch NRC website. According to these records 16.48 17 July, shortly after the crash of the Boeing MH17, a suspect in the case, Leonid Kharchenko calls to Sergey Dubinsky. “We’re here. We have already shot down the “Drying”“—reports Kharchenko.
In 19.52 Dubinsky causes Oleg Pulatova and asks: “Tell me, were shooting our “Buk” or not?” Pulatov it says: “Buk” shot down “Drying” after “Drying” shot down “Boeing“.
The same version Dubinsky immediately voiced the main suspect on the case of Igor Girkin: “Drying hit the “Boeing”, and then we ended up in the “Drying” of our “Buck”. The good news is, Yes, Igor?“.
Girkin, unlike his companion, alarmed: “I don’t know, I honestly don’t believe it“.
At Dubinsky is on his arguments: “We still are accused that we hit him, if you know what I mean“.
We will remind, the plane, carrying out flight MH17, was shot down on 17 July 2014. Defendants in the case are four: three Russians — Igor Girkin, Sergey Dubinsky and Oleg Pulatov and holder of Ukrainian passport, Leonid Kharchenko.
