In response to Ukrainian allegations that pro-Russian terrorists had shot down the Malaysian Boeing they denied possession of weapons capable of doing it. However, the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) has published an intercept of the terrorists discussing in great detail a BUK-M surface-to-air system, another “gift” from Russia, capable of downing targets like #MH17.

Security service of Ukraine has investigated the circumstances of the July 17 terrorist act that took about 300 people dead. The data obtained indicates that the Boeing-777 plane was shot down by Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR) terrorists using a surface-to-air missile complex Buk-M brought in from Russia. On July 14 the first information appeared on the terrorists possessing a Buk SAM complex capable of intercepting airborne targets at significant heights. However, the information of the Buk being in Ukrainian territory could not be confirmed back then.
The following is a transcript of the intercept between prominent pro-Russian terrorist leaders:
Oleg – Oleg Bugrov, Luhansk Republic chief of staff, deputy defense minister
Orion – Russian citizen, Main Intelligence Directorate officer probably called Andrey Ivanovich
Oleg: The plane bombed the settlement. It missed.
Orion: Awesome. That’s revenge for the planes we’ve downed today, but that will end in a couple of days.
Orion: We already have a f***ing Buk, we’ll shoot them down.
In the morning of July 17, 2014, the day of the tragedy, counterintelligence obtained trustworthy information of the DPR terrorists obtaining at least one Buk-M unit with a crew transferred across the Russian border near the town of Sukhodolsk around 1:00 AM.
Around 9:00 AM the complex reached the city of Donetsk and later was transported to the settlement of Pervomaiskyi.
Khmuryi – Sergey Nikolayevich Petrovskyi, 1964, Russian Main Inteligence Directorate, Igor Girkin (Strelkov’s) deputy on intelligence, was in Donetsk during the intercept
Buryat -DNR terrorist (name being investigated)
Sanych -DNR terrorist, Khmuryi’s deputy
Khmuryi: Buryat, I hear you, go ahead.
Buryat: Where do we load this beauty?
Khmuryi: Which one? That one?
Buryat: Right, the one I’ve brought. I’m already in Donetsk.
Khmuryi: Is it the one I’m thinking about? The “B”… “M” one?
Buryat: Right. The Buk.
Khmuryi: Is it on a tow car?
Buryat: Yeah. It has to be unloaded and hid somewhere.
Khmuryi: Does it have a crew?
Buryat: Right. IT HAS.
Khmuryi: You don’t have to hide it anywhere, it’ll go there now.
Khmuryi: Have you brought one or two?
Buryat: Just one. There was a mishap there. They did not transfer our tow car. They unloaded it and it went here self-propelled.
Khmuryi: So did it come self-proppelled or on a tow car?
Buryat: it crossed the “stripe” (the border) self-proppelled.
Khmuryi: I see, and now you’ve brought it on a tow truck… Don’t take it anywhere… I’ll tell where it should go now, it will go together with Vostok batallion’s tanks.
Khmuryi: Sanych, you know… My Buk-M will go with your guys, it’s on a tow, where do I get it to put it into the column?
Sanych: Next to the “Motel”, right before Gornostayevka.
Khmuryi: Right after the motel, right?
Khmuryi: Listen closely: call Bibliotekar. You’ll see you know what right after the motel ring.
Khmuryi: Take only those who came back, whoever you need to guard it. Leave the others here. When you get there, Pervomaiskoye will be close, look at the map.
DNR terrorist: Got it.
Khmuryi: Set up around there, pull out those you have left. You’ll be in reserve. And guarding the thing you’re about to drive. Gyurza will be there too. Call me if you need anything.
DNR Terrorist: Ok.
It should be noted that on July, 17, apart from the Buk-M, DNR got three Hvozdyka howitzers from Russia. The terrorists also don’t hide their knowledge of artillery strikes at Ukrainian forces from Russian territory.
Khmuryi: Hello, Botsman. I hear you. Well, we aren’t doing good, we are near Marinovka right now and it isn’t too good there. But we’re holding our ground.
Botsman: Why is it so bad?
Khmuryi: Well, what do you think? We are under Grad fire, we’ve only got a breather now. We’ve also downed a Su-25 fighter-bomber. We’ve got a Buk-M now.
Khmuryi: They are trying to escape Zelenopolye and they can only go through me. Downed two Su-25’s yesterday and another one today.
Khmuryi: Thank god we got a Buk-M in the morning. It got easier. But it’s still quite hard.
Botsman: What can I say? If you need anything, call me, I’ll be right there.
Khmuryi: Thanks, brother. In a couple of hours I’m heading to Donetsk, looks like we got a breather after all. Three Hvozdyka howitzers waiting for me there. I’ll tow the Hvozdykas here because it’s really quite tough here.
Botsman: Listen, should we shell them with a Grad?
Khmuryi: You see, we’ve got a Grad, but no spotter. However, we’re waiting for Russia to shell them from the other side.
