The truth about MH17

At the beginning of June, Eurozine editor Simon Garnett interviewed Bellingcat founder Eliot Higgins about the ongoing trial in Amsterdam of four men charged with murder in connection with the shooting down of MH17 . Higgins also talked about a recent report of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons on chemical weapons attacks at Al Lataminah, northern Syria, in 2017. We were particularly interested in hearing about Higgins’s experience with pro-Russian and pro-Syrian disinformation, and how Bellingcat navigates this hyper-partisan online terrain. The interview was published in Eurozine on 4 June 2020.
