According to the Dutch deputy Pieter Omtzigt (CDA),  the January 22 closed hearings on the investigation of the Malaysian Boeing MH17 crash in Donbass revealed that only Ukraine could have shot down the plane. According to Harm Brouwer, head of the Dutch defense and intelligence supervisory commission, CTIVD, the passenger plane was shot down by a ”BUK” surface-to-air missile, and as of July 17, when the plane was shot down, only the Ukrainian side had an efficient "BUK" system in Donbass.

Omtzigtt published this information on his Twitter account after being at the January 22 closed hearings, yet it was not widely disseminated. The first person to pay attention to it was the Ukrainian political scientist and director of the Center for Eurasian Research, Vladimir Kornilov. Accompanying this sensational tweet were a surprising illustration from Dutch newspapers and the websites that published excerpts from an official crash report, which were later deleted. What information did they contain that the investigation did not publish?

Omtzigt can hardly be suspected of pro-Russian bias, having supported the release of Yulia Tymoshenko from prison, as well as that of the Yury Lutsenko, who currently directs President Poroshenko’s faction in the Verkhovna Rada.
