Security Chief Caught Lying, or a President’s Slip of the Tongue

Last week, Valentin Nalivaichenko, the Ukraine’s Security Service boss got caught. Interviewed by a TV channel owned by Piotr Poroshenko, he volunteered some comments about the downed Malaysian airliner, placing himself clearly out of his remit. It is unprecedented for a head of a national security service to conduct plane crash investigations, usually reserved to national and international authorities with dedicated expertise. But in our case, Mr. Nalivaichenko appeared at the front entrance of the highly protected SBU Headquarters building on Vladimirskaya Street, where local CIA station has taken two entire floors, and got himself thoroughly burned.


"Those liable to indemnify the families of the victims should be clearly identified, and by those I mean the Russian servicemen who operated the modernized BUK-M missile launcher after it was brought into Ukraine from Russia. The Ukrainian investigators are to implement the plan developed in cooperation with the Netherlands and other parties to the international investigation. The should go to the crash site and find the missing elements, the debris of that particular missile launched from that particular BUK system”, said Mr Nalivaichenko.


To put it squarely, we have a plan, and we will find what we must find. That is, if we don’t need it, we won’t find it. A fair description of the new SBU sting operation suggested by their American siblings. That is, we haven’t been there yet, we haven’t found those “missing elements” that would prove Russia is guilty, but we are already giving you our inescapable conclusions.


Nalivaichenko was also stupid enough to mention BUK-M launchers. Russia does not have any of them in service. All the M variants are in Ukraine.


Regarding Nalivaichenko's refrence to the BUK-M, our source in the Russian General Staff says: "What Mr Nalivachenko meant when he mentioned the "modernized BUK" was most probably the air defense missile system that received upgrades from one of UkrOboronProm industrial subsidiaries. We are aware of this Ukrainian BUK modernization program. At the end of June the active status of the program was confirmed by the Ukrainian Ministry Defense when its web site announced the new modernized BUK entering field service.


Again, Mr Nalivachenko knows how to present Russia as the guilty party. He hasn't answered a single question from the Russian Ministry of Defense, including those concerning a Ukrainian fighter jet that was detected in a close proximity of the Malaysian airliner, about the Ukrainian air defense footprint in the crash area, and the reasons for unusually intense signals exchange between Ukrainian surface-to-air batteries in the area, picked up by an AWACS spy plane.


But there is plan in place! A steel pellet of obscure origin will be presented as a Russian missile shrapnel, and then the US State Department will take over and the ever-happy Jen Psaki will brandish the speck of metal to scare the world.


Not even a speck of metal, but rather a blurred photo of a speck of metal that is now exhibited in the Internet for the pleasure of the browsing public, even before Mr Nalivachenko's people have been dispatched to the crash site.





In the meantime, the Malaysian airliner story is going through new and unexpected twists and turns. 


President Poroshenko dotted all the i's as to who and how destroyed the Malaysian flight MH17, when he visited the Kharkov University to meet students. As he toured the department that trains operators for the BUK surface-to-air missile system, an amazing thing happened.


President was surely aware of the cameras nearby, but he did not know that they were actually rolling.


"Is it exactly the system that killed the MH17?", inquired Poroshenko. MH17 is the flight number that was shot down over the DPR. 


Faced with a glaring case of oddity, no one answered. The learned host quickly changed the subject. Visibly stressed, the President continued his tour of the radar training facility. Later in the auditorium Poroshenko spent 15 minutes congratulating the university management team for the definitive role the Kharkov University graduates played in the anti-terror campaign back in June.


The Malaysian MH17 crashed on June 17. On that day, a number of Kharkov graduates were in fact engaged in the ATO zone. Alexander Gavrishuk was one of them. He graduated from the Kharkov University Air Defense College 2010 class and last June his unit was stationed near Ilovaisk, 30 kilometers away from Grabovo where the airliner crashed.


Gavrishuk's mate, Yuri Muzychuk is another Kharkov University graduate. In his social network page he has published a video. A battery of seven vehicles, including four BUK launchers, is on alert. They have a mission for which President Poroshenko promised bonuses. During his visit, Poroshenko never explained how he knew that the Malaysian flight had been shot down from a BUK of that exact variant, the M1.


Neither Ukrainian investigators nor international aviation safety experts have ever visited the crash site. What makes it even more striking, Ukrainian internal documents and a classified report signed by Igor Zorin, the Ukrainian Army Air Defense Commander, show a picture of a black speck described as “a fragment of an anti-aircraft missile shrapnel”. Importantly, the timing of that information coincides with the SBU claim that the plane was shot down by a Russian missile.

BUK and BUK-M1 systems are not part of the Russian military arsenals, and they are even less likely to be available to the Donetsk and Lugansk resistance. That might be the reason why the Ukrainians kept Zorin’s report secret for two months: it is dated August 7. How could it happen?


Igor Korotechenko, a Russian armaments expert, explains:

“The Ukrainian military is the only one to organically operate the variant of the BUK anti-aircraft system mentioned in the report. After the breakup of the Soviet Union a number of Soviet-made BUKs remained in the territory of the Kiev and the Carpathia military regions and they were later adopted by the Ukrainian forces as legacy systems. We are talking about 70 BUK launchers”.   


The fact that the report was signed off at the beginning of August reveals another important detail: Ukraine entertained a cozy relationship with the international investigation mission.    There are reasons to believe that the mission’s findings were secretly delivered to the Ukrainian Defense Ministry, care of Col. Igor Zorin. The one who signed the classified report.


Although it is not his area of expertise. Zorin had never had any experience with longer-range surface-to-air systems like BUK.


"Col. Zorin, the Ukrainian Army Air Defense Commander, who signed the report, has graduated from the Poltava Military Academy where he specialized in short-range anti-aircraft systems. He either has acted on orders from above, or been engaged in some kind of a game that is not about seeking the truth but rather a public relations stint”, says Alexander Maslov.


Whether investigators will reach the Boeing crash site is an open question. The next international investigation report is due in a year.
