Terrorists wanted to shot down Aeroflot plane instead of Boeing – Nalyvaichenko


Terrorists planned to shoot down a Russian Aeroflot aircraft instead of the Malaysia Airlines Boeing jet.
Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) Chief Valentyn Nalyvaichenko said this at a briefing in Kyiv on Thursday, Ukrinform reported.
“It has been established during the investigation into the downing of the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 passenger plane that terrorists and military mercenaries cynically planned a terrorist attack against a civilian aircraft of Aeroflot, Flight AFL2074, en route from Moscow to Larnaca, which was flying over Ukrainian territory at the same time,” Nalyvaichenko said.
He said that this crime had been planned as an excuse to bring Russian troops to Ukraine.
