A group of investigating journalists Bellingcat published a report on its website June 5 showing the Russian army markings on the Buk AA missile battery as well as giving information about Russian military drivers who had deployed Buk to the border with Ukraine.
Photographs and satellite imagery confirm that the Buk battery started on its way to Donbas in 53rd Brigade positioned in Marshal Zhukov town near Kursk, Bellingcat says.
The identities of Buk drivers are known and Bellingcat submitted their names to the international Joint Investigating Group probing into MH17 disaster.
MH17 was shot down over Donbas. All its 298 passengers and crew died.
Late September 2016, the group announced its preliminary report, pointing the finger on Russia.
Moscow, however, said the report cannot be considered final and called it a draft one and biased.
