MH17 Trial: JIT first started its route investigation based on this photo in Paris Match magazine. JIT contacted the owner of the business that had its number on the side - he testified that his business had been seized by "DNR militants"
MH17 Trial: On top of the telecoms metadata and witness evidence, JIt superimposed social media and photo data that was published as the BUK Telar moved. This resulted in this consistent composite route map
MH17 Trial: JIT was able to track the movement of the BUK-Telar by identifying phones of people who traveled with the vehicle. Once finding the correlated numbers, it was easy to track the movement near perfectly
MH17 Trial: This is the route that JIT was able to reconstruct for the fateful BUK- Telar - starting from Yenakieve, Donetsk and on to Snizhne
The second part of Day 2 of the MH17 case begins. Prosecution will present how it investigated different competing scenarios for a surface-to-air missile shootdown. First, JIT inventorized all possible s-2-a systems that could have technically shot MH7 down

MH17 trial: (An anonymous source emailed JIT a screenshot of the Russian radar app showing the existence of raw data)
MH17 Trial: Shortly after the downing, Russia's MoD showed radar data that showed a fighter jet in the vicinity of MH17. JIT requested Russia to hand over raw primary data from civilian and military radar bases. Russia handed over a video of combined primary and secondary radar data
JIT requested Ukraine, Russia and NATO "AWACS" radar data. AWACS did not produce any relevant data. Ukraine could not provide primary data from the only in-range radar base due to "scheduled maintenance". JIT investigated such claims thoroughly
MH17 trial: The prosecutor explains the various RCS (Radar cross-section) factors for different flying objects - the point is that a BUK missile is nearly infinitely much less likely to be captured on primary radar data than an aircraft
Day 2 of the MH17 court hearings just started. The prosecution is addressing the radar data analyzed by JIT. A theoretical description of primary vs secondary radar data is underway

MH17 Trial: Prosecutors explain the mammoth work that needed to be undertaken to monitor, capture and archive ALL potentially relevant online posts, images, video publications that might in the future provide evidence. This was done on a mass-scale basis using ML algorithms
MH17 Trial: In one last example, suspect Dubinsky reported on 16 June 2014 that Bezler's unit had just downed a Ukrainian SU fighter jet. This was also confirmed by contemporaneous news reports
MH17 Trial: Another "validation" example was an intercept between Girkin and Konstantin Valeryevich (identified by us as Malofeev). The content of the call was confirmed by contemporaneous news reports in the Russian media
107 new cases of coronavirus infection. 7 of them are medical workers. In total, 9807 cases of COVID19 infection were registered in Moldova
MH17 Trial: Another validation route was by cross-referencing hardware signatures (IMEI) among different operators, and call duration and timing metadata (i.e. to ensure there was no overlaps or other inconsistencies)
MH17 Trial: Network measurement near the launch site and along the suspected BUK route could only be made a year after the crash, due to hostilities and local militant restrictions. LNR for example didn't allow measurement (red segment)
MH17 Trial: JIT didn't just take SBU provided intercepts at public value. It applied a holistic validation method - comparing Ukraine data with international call metadata, confirming content with some participants, and finding open-source confirmation of certain calls having taken place
MH17 Trial: In another call, with Vladimir Ivanovich (identified by us as FSB's Gen. Andrey Burlaka), it could be heard how encryption can be turned on and off during a call
MH17 Trial:These initial "hits" were only starting points, and not the final evidence. They provided leads to look for other calls, and to start interpreting topics and references. Data was aggregated from 3 different sources: intel, ongoing criminal investigations, and MH17 investigations
MH17 trial: Prosecution explains why SBU were able to publish intercepts several hours after the shootdown. SBU had been tracking these phones for months already. After the incident SBU engaged its field offices to listen to recent calls to find relevant conversations
MH17 trial: After expose about forensic research into the found fragments and the manner in which a BUK missile explodes, the OM will continue with explaining the forensic investigations of telecommunication around the MH17 crash: analysis and validation thereof. Of audio and metadata

MH17 Trial: Prosecution answers two truthist challenges. One is that only 300 out of 800 shrapnel fragments were recovered. This is logical given the omnidirectional dispersal of fragments. Second is the weight of fragments. Not all fragments retain their original shape, experiment showed
MH17 Trial: In November 2014, JIT also inspected both the electronic guiding unit of the missile and the BUK-Telar installation (right). This was done in Ukraine
MH17 trial: Prosecution begins by explaining why no real forensic investigation could be done on the crash site which was under control of Russian-controlled militants. Access to site was mediated only via OSCE
