https://www.watchdogmediainstitute.com/2018/12/mh17day1.html

Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was downed over eastern Ukraine, killing all 298 people on board. As confused first reports came in, Ukraine blamed Russia for the tragedy before the news even broke on CNN. A message falsely attributed to a rebel commander went viral. The head of Ukraine’s intelligence agency presented alleged phone taps of rebels discussing the plane.

John McCain falsely claimed Ukraine was incapable of shooting down the plane. News stations spoke of lower-flying military aircraft the rebels had shot down previously and discussed whether they had capability to reach aircraft at 10,000 feet. With the information war adding to the ground war already raging in Ukraine, the difficult task of retrieving the bodies and wreckage from a war zone began.

OSCE monitors arrived to the crash site where emergency workers were searching for bodies. A UN Security Council session was held to discuss the tragedy. Ukraine produced more alleged phone taps and a video showing a Buk launcher moving “through Krasnodon”.

Fighting continued on several fronts with Grad rockets hitting Severodonetsk and Lisichansk, killing civilians and setting an oil refinery on fire. Many more civilians were killed in a brutal scene in the city of Lugansk.

Bodies were collected by the side of the road, loaded onto trucks and transferred to refrigerated railway cars waiting nearby in Torez. During a briefing on the downing of MH17, Ukrainian Counterintelligence Chief Vitaly Nayda claimed 3 Buk launchers were smuggled back to Russia the day before.

Ukrainian government forces launched Grad rockets at residential areas and a school in Donetsk, as civilians retreated ..

On July 23 Ukrainian forces continued attacking Lisichansk and gained control of 3 towns near Donetsk. 2 of their warplanes were downed near Marinovka as their troops faced DPR encirclement near the border. Protests against conscription took place in Western Ukraine.

40 MH17 victims were flown back to the Netherlands, loaded into hearses and driven past mourners on the way to Hilversum for identification. Anonymous U.S. intelligence officials presented their case to select journalists and significant reports were published by Reuters, Paris Match and the BBC.

US President Donald Trump is being impeached for briefly withholding military aid to Ukraine, but it should never have been provided in the first place. Here are just some of the reasons why it should be withheld.

#1 0:10:20
Ukrainian tanks rolled into Mariupol on the 9th of May (2014), leaving dead bodies and a burning police station in their wake. “Rocket-propelled grenades fired in city centre streets, shooting, where yesterday people were shopping.”

#2 1:07:22
An airstrike killed “5 women… 3 men,” in the centre of Lugansk on the 2nd of June. Ukraine denied the airstrike and blamed a bomb from inside the admin building and a heat-seeking rocket that targeted the air conditioner

The south of Lugansk was bombarded on the 13th and 14th of July. “Among the dead, a female guard at the Lugansk southern district school.” The OSCE inspected the area amidst a crowd of suffering locals.

William Taylor, who recently testified before the impeachment inquiry against Donald Trump, was arguing for the Obama administration and the EU to impose harsher penalties against Russia days after MH17 was downed over eastern Ukraine. Both his and CNN's assessment of the situation is incorrect as the comprehensive documentaries listed below show.

On July 21, 2014 Grad rockets killed 4 civilians in the north of Donetsk during a Ukrainian military operation near the airport. Ukrainian forces also launched airstrikes in Dzerzhinsk before capturing the city along with Rubezhnoye and several other locations.

Malaysian President Razak reached an agreement with DPR Prime Minister Borodai to retrieve the bodies and black boxes from the crash site. While Dutch experts on the ground were impressed with the body recovery effort, it was condemned by President Obama and speakers at the United Nations.
