Translation of Newly-Available Video of MH17 Indicates Villagers Spoke of 'Rocket'

A video has been discovered today of the first moments after the crash of MH17 which has been published by Komsomolskaya Pravda, a pro-Kremlin Russian newspaper.



It has been uploaded to YouTube by Komsomolskaya Pravda and labelled "First minutes after the fall of the Malaysian Boeing [eyewitness video].

Here is a transcript of the video which we have made listening to it repeatedly a dozen times, but this could be subject to change with enhanced audio.

In the first few seconds we hear the cameraman running and breathing heavily and a dog barking.

The Interpreter has made a translation of the audio:

0:13 Ugh
0:18 [Woman] It's horrible
0:18 [Camera man] There's the hay over there.
0:20 [Men in background] Let's go, let's go, water over here!
0:25 [Man] I just learned about it.
0:27 [Man close by] Over there, it's lying in the yard.
0:27 [Another man] What, it went through the roof?
0:29 [Man] Yes, it went through the roof.
0:30 [Camera man] Wow, the clothes went flying over there.
0:33 [Another man] Yes, it was, there.
0:35 [Another man] Yes, it [feminine case] was there.
0:38 [Another man] Yes, smoke, with shrapnel over there.
0:40 [Another man] It tore the motor off, yes.
0:41 [Another man] A rocket took off.
0:45 [Woman] And how did...
0:50 [Indistinct voices]
1:14 [Man] But what, the water...?
1:19 [Another man] Is there anyone who can call the firemen?
1:20 [Woman] An ambulance... 

We will have a translation of the KP article up shortly.

We also have reason to believe this may not be an amateur video.
