Pro-Russia Rebel Commander Says Bodies Were Already Dead Before Plane Crashed

In a bizarre post on VK.com, the Russian equivalent of Facebook, Strelkov asserted that corpses strewn about the crash scene in the rural eastern Ukrainian village of Grabovo were “bloodless” and insinuated that Kiev may have deliberately shot the plane down as part of some sinister plan.

Strelkov claimed that he had spoken to “two people who personally collected the bodies immediately after the crash” and that they had “stressed that many corpses were ‘entirely bloodless’ — as if their blood had clotted long before the accident.”

Furthermore, he wrote, “the plane was discovered with a large quantity of drugs, blood serum and other things, which is not characteristic for a conventional airliner. It seems that there was some sort of special medical cargo.”

Indeed there was — dozens of passengers aboard the plane were AIDS researchers en route to a global conference. Hence the medical supplies.
