While simulating the Malaysian Boeing flight accident that happened in the East of Ukraine, concern VKO “Almaz-Antei” displayed body fragments of the aircraft shot by the “Buk-M1” air-defense system.
Damages testify that damaging agents moved along the fuselage structure. The left engine got blanketed by main field of frags, Mikhail Malishevski, counsellor to the chief designer said.
Upon his words, if the missile had moved on the opposite course it would have pierced the right board too. Thus, according to the experiment, Boeing damages prove that it was the Zaroshenske settlement, then controlled by Ukrainian military, that the plane was shot from.

The missile does not contain the double T– shaped damaging agents displayed earlier by the international commission.
