Russians claim Ukrainian aircraft tracked Malaysian flight

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

An SU-25, they say. Russian Times…

The Russian military detected a Ukrainian SU-25 fighter jet gaining height towards the MH17 Boeing on the day of the catastrophe. Kiev must explain why the military jet was tracking the passenger airplane, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

“A Ukraine Air Force military jet was detected gaining height, it’s distance from the Malaysian Boeing was 3 to 5km,” said the head of the Main Operations Directorate of the HQ of Russia’s military forces, Lieutenant-General Andrey Kartopolov speaking at a media conference in Moscow on Monday.

“[We] would like to get an explanation as to why the military jet was flying along a civil aviation corridor at almost the same time and at the same level as a passenger plane,” he stated.

Propaganda ain’t what it used to be. The SU-25 “Frogfoot” is a ground support aircraft with an unarmed ceiling of 23,000′. It’s ceiling is less when it is carrying external weapons. The Malaysian airliner was cruising at 33,000′. The maximum speed of the SU-25 is about the same as the airliner.

So we are asked to believe that the Ukrainians were able to intercept the Malaysian airliner with an aircraft that, when carrying air-to-air missiles has a ceiling more than 10,000′ below the airliner and a maximum speed, when armed, less than the cruising speed of the civilian craft.

Furthermore, we are being asked to believe that the Ukrainians purposely shot down a civilian airliner in order to pin it on the Russians? For that mission, they chose an aircraft that would require a huge amount of luck to barely pull off the attack?

Occam’s Razor tells me that the obvious answer is that trigger happy Russian militiamen, who had been shooting down Ukrainian aircraft for weeks, misidentified the airliner as a Ukrainian military transport and blew it out of the sky mistakenly.

The SU-25 conspiracy theory isn’t even up to moonbat standards.
