The rebel commander blamed for shooting down flight MH17 has made bizarre claims that bodies at the crash site “aren’t fresh.”
Pro-Russian separatist Igor Girkin has claimed corpses near the debris died days before the plane took off.
According to rebel website Russkaya Vesna, the leader was told by people at the scene in eastern Ukraine that “a significant number of the bodies were drained of blood and reeked of decomposition.”
Girkin, also known as Strelkov and allegedly a former Russian intelligence agent, also suggested that a large amount of blood serum and medications in the wreckage.
The information has not been confirmed but the commander said: “Ukrainian authorities are capable of any baseness”…
