Full title: Pro-Russian looters pulled Tesco binoculars from British MH17 victim's suitcase - but threw them back because they were broken

Eyewitness saw pro-Russian forces rifling through John Alder's bags Thugs stole Mr Alder's binoculars - but discarded them as they were broken Pro-Russian rebels spotted stealing victims' cash, credit cards and jewelry Prime Minister David Cameron said the killers must be 'held to account'

:snip:

Mr Doroschenko told The Sun: 'They were rifling belongings with torches 50 yards away. Once they'd gone I went over to the body where they had been and found wallets left open, purses empty and papers all over the ground. It's awful.'

Anton Gerashchenko, an advisor to the Kiev government, said: 'I have received information that terrorist death-hunters were collecting not only cash and jewellery of the crashed Boeing dead passengers but also the credit cards of the victims.'

Yes it is terrible that disasters bring out the worst of human nature. In this case, looting.

The difference in Donetsk however is that the looters there were also the killers.

‘The government of Ukraine officially states that the terrorists, with the help of Russia, are trying to destroy evidence of international crimes,’ a statement said.

‘According to government data, the terrorists have taken 38 bodies to the morgue in Donetsk,’ it said, accusing specialists with ‘strong Russian accents’ of threatening to carry out their own autopsies.

It also said rebels were ‘seeking large transports to carry away plane fragments to Russia’.

Rescue workers have been allowed on to the site, Ukraine said, and have found 186 of the 298 bodies - but have been stopped from taking anything away.

Why don’t they just just come out and say that the PRO-RUSSIA family members or wait..... even better yet...the PRO-RUSSIA brothers, sisters, aunt, uncles and children of Vladimir Putin are pulling the gold teeth out of the dead bodies, peeing on them and then hacking off their ears and noses to make souvenir necklaces. See how much better that sounds?

I just don’t get it...

This happens in every third-world hell-hole, and there are plenty of historical examples of it.

This happened in the middle of a war zone, where central authority has broken down.

Our western values may be appalled by it, but why does anyone feign surprise? What do you think would happen to the belongings if it had crashed in Central Detroit, without police intervention?

If I were Russian, I certainly wouldn’t admit it. What pigs.

Based on your past posts I am surprised we agree 100% on what sort of animals these your "brave Russian freedom fighters" are.

I think the difference is, it's the loyalists who are acting as the 'police' in securing the zone but it's these same 'police' who are doing the looting. If (real) police in Detroit were looting a crash site, while keeping others away, I think the citizens of Detroit would have something to say about that.

I can just imagine the looting and plunder that will ensue if super markets are emptied after the predicted economic collapse of of the dollar and the United States.

Seriously? Nothing Putin or the rebels do causes you any problems whatsoever do they? Everything is either someone else’s fault or worse somewhere else. If you’re not being paid by the Kremlin, you should really think about sending them an invoice.

Russians have also taken away the bodies. They told these are in Donetsk morgue, but morgue said the bodies never came.

Here is an expert opinion written in Russian on why they did it.

http://news.liga.net/news/politics/2589198-pochemu_diversanty_ne_puskayut_obse_k_boeing_777_mnenie_marchuka.htm?utm_source=newsliganet&utm_medium=site&utm_term=top_block&utm_campaign=usability

Autotranslate was hard to understand, but what I got from there is that since it is known what seats were assigned to people then examining the foreign fragments in bodies and the angles they entered it can be told much about what happened at the point of impact, so Russians will take the bodies away, remove the fragments and change the entry wounds.

Are they doing it to feed the conspiracy theories? US satellite systems should have told USA anyway what type of missiles and shot from where, but then it is only USA vouching for the info and not a group of independent observers from around the world.
