Militias in the South-East of Ukraine was not able to capture a Malaysian Boeing 777, because for the work of anti-aircraft missile complex " Buk " necessary external target designation system, which they have, said Last news on the last working day of the week the head of the Academy of geopolitical issues, the doctor of military Sciences Konstantin Sivkov.
on Thursday it was announced about the crash in Eastern Ukraine Boeing 777 Malaysian airlines flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. In the cabin of the ship was 298 people, and Among them fifteen members of the crew. The survivors of a plane crash not. Among victims - three babies.
" the militias, not just experts that are able to use these facilities. In addition, an important point here. Complexes of type " Buk " must be provided by an external target designation system, that is, radiolokatsionnye surveillance systems. It is the entire system. The militia has no radar field. So, to talk about the fact that Militia used the " Beech " and he shot down the plane Is ridiculous, " said Sivkov.
in addition, according to him, the Ukrainian side has already placed a letter about the fact that Systems " Buk ", seized by the militiamen, were put out of action, are faulty and cannot be used.
" You can fix that if these Complexes would be in order, then start to feel that their actions are the air force of Ukraine. Anyway, they quietly operate at high altitudes, no one can hurt, and only when they descend on a small height, strikes them, " explained the expert.
