'MH17 Inquiry' Shows BBC Collusion with Ukrainian Intel Service (Video)

A case of entrapment designed to discredit Russia is exposed

The latest episode of the series MH17 inquiry, which investigates the circumstances of the downing of the Malaysian airliner in July 2014, should prove quite an embarrassment to the BBC.

Having recently produced an MH17 documentary of their own, the BBC interviewed Sergei Sokolov, a Russian private investigator who has been working on the case. 

The interesting thing about Mr. Sokolov as that he had recently acquired a recording from Ukraine's SBU (security service), purportedly of 2 CIA agents discussing what could be MH17. The SBU had intiated contact with him to provide him the recording - and at a price which wasn't that high. 

As it turns out, one of the voices on the recording is of the BBC's own journalist. When the BBC aired their documentary, they portrayed Mr. Sokolov as a fool working for the Kremlin - this in spite of the fact that Sokolov has essentially been blacklisted by the Kremlin as somebody closely tied to the late oligarch Boris Berezovsky. 

Sokolov was also provided a video by the SBU, allegedly taken inside a Ukrainian BUK missile launcher in action. Neither Sokolov nor MH17 Inquiry vouched for the authenticity of the video, and curiously, BBC chose not to even mention its existence in their film. 

Mainstream media watchers should be shocked once again how low the BBC can go.
