Espionage Files: Suspect Arrested for Attempted Assassination of Chief Forensic Expert in Malaysia Airlines MH17 Probe

For those of you that have been keeping up with story since it first happened in 2014, if you are like me, you might have to start taking notes or making a timeline chart…it just keeps getting stranger and sounding more and more like the plot out of a Robert Ludlum novel rather than an actual event. First was the hilariously bad audio recording made most likely by Russian Intelligence trying to blame the crash on the United States, now this. Whats next? The Magic Bullet Theory? One can only speculate. -SF

Police have arrested a man on suspicion of trying to assassinate the chief expert witness in the investigation into the downing of the Malaysia Airlines jet MH17.

Ukraine’s most senior forensic scientist, Oleksandr Ruvin, was shot in the leg late last year in an attack that the authorities suspect was linked to his role in the crash probe.

In a short statement, the Ukrainian prosecutor’s office said the country’s chief military prosecutor, Anatoliy Matios, would hold a briefing later on Monday “regarding the arrest of the killer who attempted to murder the chief expert on the case of the downed Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777”.

A report into the downing of MH17 published in October 2015 confirmed the plane was shot down by a Russina-built Buk surface-to-air missile launched from eastern Ukraine.
