A Dutch father penned a letter to Putin describing his 17-year-old daughter Elsemiek, one of the 298 passengers who perished in the crash. “Elsemiek would next year take her final exam, along with her best friends Julia and Marina, and she did well in school,” wrote Hans de Borst. His teenage daughter planned to be an engineer, the anguished father said.And that has what to do with Putin? Serious question.
“She then wanted to go to TU Delft to study engineering, and she was looking forward to it! She is suddenly no more! From the air she was shot in a foreign country where a war is going on,” he raged.A foreign country called Ukraine. This has what to do with Putin?
“Many thanks to the separatist leaders of Ukrainian government for the murder of my dear and only child,” de Borst wrote. “Gentlemen of the above, I hope you're proud of including her and her young life was shot up too, and you can look in the mirror!,” he wrote, signing it Hans de Borst, “whose life is ruined.”I'm sure whoever shot down MH17 had a beer or maybe champagne after. I'm absolutely certain of that.
That urgency was echoed by Silene Fredriksz-Hoogzand, whose son Bryce and his girlfriend Daisy Oehlers were killed in the crash. “Mr. Putin, send my children home,” Fredriksz-Hoogzand told Britain’s Sky TV.Hey dumb fuck: The bodies are in Ukraine not Russia. Putin has no say over what happens outside the territory of Russia.
“I am not a politician. But I know for sure that Mr. Putin can do something,” the despairing mother said.You know what else this woman is? Uninformed. Here's Putin on the matter(as of 3:56PM today):
“There are already representatives of Donetsk and Lugansk working there, as well as representatives of the emergencies ministry of Ukraine and others. But this is not enough,” Putin said officially commenting on the tragic event on Sunday. “This task force is not enough,” Putin emphasized. “We need more, we need a fully representative group of experts to be working at the site under the guidance of ICAO, the relevant international commission.” “We must do everything to provide security for the international experts on the site of the tragedy,” Putin stressed, adding that Russia will also do everything in its power to help shift the Ukrainian conflict from a military phase into a political discussion. “We need to do everything to provide its [ICAO commission’s] safety, to provide the humanitarian corridors necessary for its work,” Putin added. “In the meantime, nobody should and has no right to use this tragedy to achieve their ‘narrowly selfish’ political goals,” Putin stated. “We repeatedly called upon all conflicting sides to stop the bloodshed immediately and sit down at the negotiating table,” the President reminded. “I can say with confidence that if military operations were not resumed on June 28 in eastern Ukraine, this tragedy wouldn’t have happened.”How about "news"papers and other media stop interviewing uninformed, emotional people who have been duped by politicians into saying and writing dumb things? Apparently Hans de Borst works for a bank. You'd think a person who works in an industry that depends on the cool understanding of numbers would know better than to be scattershot with his assignment of blame. How about Hans stop playing politics with his dead daughter?
