International observers turned back Wednesday after making another attempt to reach the site where Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 went down in eastern Ukraine, and a government official said the area near the zone had been mined by pro-Russian separatists who control it....
Safety concerns and hindrance from the separatists who control the area have kept the investigation team away. Foreign governments whose citizens died have complained the site is not secured and some human remains have not been recovered.
Government security spokesman Andriy Lysenko added to those concerns Wednesday by saying separatists "have mined the approaches to this area. This makes the work of the international experts impossible."
Lysenko was asked at a briefing about concerns that Ukrainian efforts to win back territory were increasing fighting in the area and slowing access.

Due to global instant media, the battlefield has become more of an information war than a physical one.
“It may not be true.”
Or, mines could have been placed “around” the crash site to keep local looters away and not to keep investigators away.

“The first casualty of any event such as this one are the victims of internet moonbat conspiracy theories.”
Why would the Germans espouse such a conspiracy? And why would a Business site publish it. It’s my observation over the last few years that it’s the MSM that makes things up to advance their cause.
I suspect you didn’t even read it... Because it doesn’t fit your agenda.
That is certainly true, and Putin should be tried for crimes against humanity.
I read all the way to the part about the Spanish air traffic controller in Ukraine, whose Twitter account was deleted, and doesn’t appear to exist . . . anywhere.
“I read all the way to the part about the Spanish air traffic controller in Ukraine, whose Twitter account was deleted, and doesnt appear to exist . . . anywhere.”
How is that significant?
Because you feel it is significant that a blog is repeating false information, as if by virtue of being a blog, the information gains value.
