Ukrainian rebel leader gives bizarre account of plane crash, suggesting victims dead for days
AP ^ | July 18, 2014

MOSCOW — A top pro-Russia rebel commander in eastern Ukraine has given a bizarre version of events surrounding the Malaysian jetliner crash — suggesting many of the victims may have died days before the plane took off.

The pro-rebel website Russkaya Vesna on Friday quoted Igor Girkin as saying he was told by people at the crash site that "a significant number of the bodies weren't fresh," adding that he was told they were drained of blood and reeked of decomposition. ....

Girkin said "Ukrainian authorities are capable of any baseness."

Maybe the bodies had no blood because Igor “the Terrible” Strelkov is also a VAMPIRE?

Poor guy. All this after someone hacked his Twitter (or was it Facebook?) account making it look like he claimed credit for the shootdown. Now he has to deal with the Ukrainians flying a jet full of corpses and shooting it down over his territory.

This was not a “plane crash.” The plane was blasted out of the sky.

This sure is one hell of a coincindence! The Ukrainian nazis who were trying to shoot down Putin’s plane accidentally shot down this plane full people who were already dead! What are the odds of that happening?

These are the folks that Putin trusted with weapons capable of bringing down airliners.

Putin is a jerk. That kind of incompetence is bound to lead to failure and ruin. No one should wonder why Russia is still such a pit.

suggesting many of the victims may have died days before the plane took off.

So then the Ukrainians were checking in passengers at the Netherlands airport???

Hopefully some of our resident Russian prefabricators will weigh in and translate this for us.

This is definitely SNL material.

How embarrassing to be a Russian today. If they had any say in their government, they could fire Putin today for bringing this shame on their nation.

This is a top rebel commander, I was going to say something nasty, then I remembered that we had a congressman hank johnson (d- ga) who feared that the island of Guam could tip over and capsize from to many marines.
Idiots have been sprinkled all over this planet, they have theirs, we certainly have ours.

Oh I am sure some Putinista’s, the nuts over at InfoWars and a few assorted Paulbots will run with this. It’s just crazy enough for them to believe it - ofcourse the NATO neo-con banksters trying to prop up fiat currency and depress the price of gold will be the likely culprits.

Looks like he’s solved the mystery of the missing Malaysian jetliner. It’s been cruising around the sky for the last 4 months with dead bodies on board until they finally shot it out of the sky.

Isn’t he the guy who went back to Moscow, resigned, and didn’t go back to that area of Ukraine? Now he says the people were corpses...and they had just taken off from Amsterdam a few hours earlier? Bizarre.

So flt 370 was actually highjacked by Ukrainian/NATO black ops to be shot down so Putin could be blamed so the globalists can have an excuse to go to war with Russia and make bank selling arms to both sides! That’s one I haven’t heard Alex Jones and Jesse Ventura peddle yet.

Powerful imagination you have Troll!
We will never know the truth on what happened but wouldn't it be interesting to know if all of the families of the those who perished on that flight will be told the same thing. Sorry here are the remains of your loved one(s).
They were only id’d with dna...cause the body was so badly mangled.
BTW..I am no Russian lover. as far as I am concerned the US gov’t and the Russkies have a deal to tank the global banking system and start over, They have a deal until the double dealing starts. Both are guilty as sin!!!!
Love your gov’t much....troll?

Maybe the deceased bodies were AIDs diseased bodies in the cargo hold? Headed for the AIDs conference in Australia? Haven’t yet heard anyone inquire about the cargo.

Are you nuts? What conspiracy are you pushing here? I don't quite get what loopy thing you are babbling about regarding the families of those who died on the plane. Many of the bodies are visible identifiable, so whatever crazy nonsense you are spewing is just silly dribble.

You sound like a paulbot truther who has spent too long listening to Alex Jones. Do yourself a favor, turn off InfoWars and back away from the computer.

There’s a fair amount of paperwork involved regarding placing a dead body on an international flight.

Extensive trauma while undergoing explosive decompression probably would not leave much blood left in the body.

Extensive abdominal trauma would also explain a fast onset of decomposition.
