Aşa-zisa "confirmare de către Strelkov" a doborârii avionului Malaysia Airlines se bazează pe un cont fals pe reţeaua Vkotakte ("Facebook-ul rusesc"). Strelkov afirmase încă din 31 mai că nu deţine un astfel de cont şi că nu a autorizat pe nimeni să posteze pe Vkontakte în numele lui.
As a Malaysian Airlines jet has been shot down today over Ukraine, several news sources have been quoting a supposed ‘Strelkov’ Vkontakte account boasting over the rebels supposedly shooting down this aircraft.
It is not impossible, of course, for the rebels to have shot down this aircraft. However, there is a problem. The Strelkov Vkontakte account is fake. Back in May 31st , Strelkov has written:
“I state officially – I have not coordinated my membership of Vkontakte with anyone. I have no account in Vkontakte. I have not authorized anyone to post anything there on my behalf.”
Equally, Strelkov’s official militia news website, http://icorpus.ru/, says: “This informational resource has no mirrors and dublicates anywhere, except the address icorpus.ru.”
This does not, of course, remove the probability that the rebels have shot down the aircraft. The rebels are known to be in possession of a Buk missile system, which is capable of carrying out this act. (I am amused darkly that when a Ukrainian aircraft was shot down at a high altitude, the Ukrainians denied that the rebels had this capability, but now they have recalled that the rebels have indeed captured the Buk).
This post will be updated as I learn more.
