the Dutch Prosecutor’s office suddenly acquired evidence, which allegedly can point to the guilt of Russia in the case of the downed Malaysian Boeing MH-17. In the hands of the prosecution – a kind of tape recording of telephone conversations. It supposedly discusses the launch of Russian complex “Buk” militias.
