Donetsk, Jul 9 - DAN. Donetsk People’s Republic Head Denis Pushilin believes that Ukrainian security service agents abducted former DPR air defence commander in the town of Snezhny Vladimir Tsemakh to falsify the circumstances of the Malaysian Boeing crash in 2014.

Earlier, media reports said that Ukrainian secret services had detained former commander of militia air defence Vladimir Tsemakh in the town of Snezhny in the DPR. Supposedly, the detainee was smuggled out of Donbass to Kiev across the contact line circumventing the checkpoints.

“We remember how fast - within 24 hours from the moment of the tragedy - Russia and Donbass militia were accused of being behind the passenger plane accident. Apparently a lack of solid evidence of their guilt prompts Ukrainian Security Service agents to make new crimes: they kidnapped a DPR citizen, former militiaman Vladimir Tsemakh with the view of further falsification of the picture of the crime,” Pushilin said in a video address posted on the head of state website.

The approaching 5th anniversary of the Malaysian Boeing crash in Donbass stirs to activity those who are interested in concealing the truth about the true culprits behind the tragedy,” Pushilin said.

The Boeing-777 of Malaysian Airlines flying from Amsterdam to Kuala-Lumpur crashed in the Grabovo village area in eastern DPR  on 17 July 2014. There were no survivors among the 298 people on board. The culprits remain unidentified.*jk
