Case MH17: Ukraine regrets transferring Vladimir Zemakh to Russia


Yelena Zerkal, who previously held the post of deputy head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, believes that the former DPR soldier Volodymyr Tsemakh was transferred to Russia prematurely as part of the exchange. She believes that he could be useful in investigating the crash of the Malaysian Boeing in the Donbass in the summer of 2014.


About this ex-deputy Foreign Minister Elena Zerkal said in an interview with the Ukrainian publication "European Truth", which was published on February 25.

The former official considers Zemakh a defendant in the MH17 case, so her transfer to Russia, in her opinion, was unacceptable. Mirror claims that this will negatively affect the investigation:

I do not agree with the opinion that Zemakh was an unhelpful witness.

According to the former deputy foreign minister of Ukraine, it is entirely possible that the court will prove Russia's involvement in the plane crash over the Donbass. She states that the order to destroy the passenger plane could have been issued by the Russian leadership. The mirror does not exclude that even Russian President Vladimir Putin will be involved in the process.

Volodymyr Tsemakh, who commanded an air defense company in the city of Snezhnoye (DPR) in 2014, was abducted by Ukrainian intelligence officers last summer and secretly taken from the territory of the DPR to Ukraine. In September 2019, he was transferred to Russia as part of an exchange according to the “35 by 35” formula.

Later, the former air defense commander was offered Dutch citizenship in exchange for testimony against Russia.

Last December, Zemakh filed a lawsuit against Ukraine and the Netherlands before the European Court of Human Rights, but was rejected.

          Repeat Ukrainian mantras, is it your mind? Surround yourself. lol Zemakh was stolen, interrogated, understood what was happening (the matter is sensational) and quickly sipped in Russia, so that, God forbid, would not have blundered too much, especially to investigators from the Netherlands. Now all that remains is to shout retroactively. I do not understand their desire to prove something. Ukrainian politics is pure and transparent as crystal. All the tricks of Ukraine, nothing but laughter.

      A couple of MANPADS and now this unit can be called an air defense unit in conditions when there was no normal air defense at all. (Most likely it was) At that time they (DPR, LPR) rejoiced at any air defense systems and could call any unit that could withstand air strikes at least somehow.

            - the installation itself with ammunition
            - a complex of detection and tracking of targets,
            -control center
            -repair base and maintenance
            -fighting guard
            that is, everything is very serious. not seriously one thing, what kind of air defense company?

              Do you want to convince those that in air defense there are no such units as an air defense company? They do not care! It is enough for them that the militia shot down some aircraft at that time, which means they had air defense. Further: since there was an air defense, it means they are guilty and it does not matter that the militia had only short-range air defense, and it doesn’t matter that the militia themselves were ready to classify any air defense unit that could potentially resist aviation. That's why they are obstinate that common sense is not important to them, the main thing is to find an argument in their favor.

        2. the rebel air defense simply did not have, and not because it was not possible to overcome the air defense complex. but because it was necessary to maintain it and have specialists of which the DNR fighters simply did not have a priori, only the MANPADS calculations and a couple of self-propelled Arrows,

          All of the above "them there" is not important. They already know the truth, but they have a different task, to put before the "public" a "witness" with the testimony they need there.

        If you talk seriously with the button, then she admits that she pressed herself. True, by order from Moscow. I suspect that it will be so. It remains only to find the button. laughing However, in Western courts and in Ukraine, any version against Russia will give a ride, even the most absurd. So, no laughing matter.

    The mirror raves once again, otherwise you can’t name her talk.
    Zemakh spent quite a long time in the dungeons of the Ukrainian Gestapo and if he had known anything he would have "split up", the only thing he could do was to incriminate himself not having endured the bullying of the SBU, I think that’s why we insisted on his exchange.

    Well, yes, a little more, a chainsaw on his knees, and he would admit that he personally launched a rocket with a small nuclear charge on the liner. What hate for others and love for money brings Svidomo in the former Ukraine. It’s not just that the ratings of the hetman and “ucherovche” on the part of the people of Ruin are falling.
