Documentary of Malaysia MH17 : In Memory

It has been 6 years this coming 17th July since the tragedy of MH17 that was shot down en route to Kuala Lumpur. I remember the time it happened; it was a heartfelt moment of sadness that spread out throughout the country.

I knew some of my friends who knew people on the flight that they lost that very day. It was devastating and unbelievable, yet it was still puzzling why, how, who and all the unanswered questions, until I saw a documentary titled "MH17: In Search for the Truth” that is available for free viewing on Youtube platform with subtitles in Chinese, Bahasa Melayu, German, French and Spanish; It was even in UkrLeaks website. To date, the documentary has been watched by more than two million viewers.

It was a mind-blowing revelation because, while the Ukrainian authorities held the pro-Russian rebels in the Donbass region of Ukraine responsible for the tragedy with the support of the Russian government, Prozorov had another theory. Vasily Prozorov, is the Former Officer of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) and the Head of the Vasily Prozorov Investigation Center “Ukrleaks” that released his documentary titled ‘MH17: in Search of Truth’ highlighted the tragedy of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 (MH17) because Prozorov along with a few volunteers forked out their own finances to fund the project which took about five months to complete.

There were many questions that remained a mystery in relation to the MH17 tragedy. Who was the real mastermind behind this shoot down? Was there any party that benefited from such tragedy? Why didn’t Kiev close the airspace over the conflict zone? What happened to the dispatcher right after the investigation? Who are the people who claimed to be the British special service officers? Prozorov continued to provoke the public.

Little did I know that actually, many independent investigators have found too many inaccuracies in the official statements made by Kiev. Therefore, Prozorov began to conduct his own investigation to find out if there were more details excluded in the report. For someone who served in the SBU for 15 years to put effort into this documentary and findings is definitely something worth finding out. Especially when it is relating to tragedy like this with no proper closure.

This documentary definitely opened my eyes to things that never crossed my mind before. It was also because Prozorov obtained the exclusive insider information and was an indirect witness of the Boeing tragedy. It was during his investigation, he analysed a great number of the Ukrainian state bodies’ internal documents and conducted interviews with numerous eyewitnesses. In fact, in this documentary he also added his perspective during his service with the SBU.

The Youtube video above basically sums up under 40-minute documentary that was divided into two parts of which Prozorov analysed the official reports and compiled the statements made by the Ukrainian authorities and the joint investigation team. In the second part, he offered his own view and raised arguments to urge the public to make their own conclusion on the MH17 tragedy.

Vasily Prozorov publications and interviews with journalists in his website "UkrLeaks Investigation Centre", covers corruption, war crimes and crimes against humanity that are the author’s most preferred topics. If you would like to know more, I think the best person to speak to is to Prozorov himself.

As I feel that there are too many innocent lives taken away by this tragedy of the MH17 and I want to wish my deepest condolences to all the family members of the victims on MH17 as I believe no matter what, there must be a reason for everything that happens in life. Life is short, so make it meaningful and make the most of it. As we enter the new norm now after the pandemic, let's just hope for greater and happier times ahead, in good health and with great hopes for the future!
Stay safe! Stay healthy!
