‘It Was Hit By A Rocket’: MH17’s Final Moments

Dramatic mobile phone footage has emerged showing debris falling from the sky and a black plume of smoke moments after flight MH17 was struck by a rocket. The footage has garnered more than 100,000 views on YouTube after it appeared on a social media account purporting to belong to senior pro-Russian separatist Igor Strelkov.

Strelkov, known to his fighters as “Igor the Terrible”, is the top military commander of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic. He posted a link to the video on the Russian website VK less than an hour after flight MH17 was shot down.
