Mascara From MH370 Victim Allegedly Used On Instagram

Mascara From MH370 Victim Allegedly Used On Instagram

A young pro-Russian Ukrainian woman from the separatist east region of the country has posted pictures of herself on Instagram claiming that she was wearing make-up looted from the downed Malaysian Airlines flight, according to reports from the region.

According to the report on Ukrainian news wire service, the young woman named as Ekaterina Parkhomenko is from the eastern city of Torez, in Donetsk province in eastern Ukraine, which is in the pro-Russian part of the country.

It is also the place where Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur crashed on 17 July after it was shot down with a Buk surface-to-air missile. The Boeing 777 airliner lost contact near the village Hrabove in Donetsk Oblast, Ukraine, about 31 miles from the Ukraine–Russia border and crashed near Torez.

The crash killed all 283 passengers and 15 crew on board.

And after the massive coverage that the shooting down achieved, the girl whose Instagram name was zolotsoya on the now deleted page wrote to tell followers about her new make-up.

She said: "Mascara from Amsterdam, or rather from the field. Well, I think you know what I mean."

She further admitted that the new make-up was not something that she collected herself, but said she had got it "from a familiar friend".

And the woman, who described herself as a "separatist" on her account, added: "I am just sick of all this Ukrainian stuff. Sick and terribly furious."

The young woman's posting however attracted a furious backlash from other users posting what they thought of her shortly before the account was deleted.

After it was branded "disgusting and horrific" by followers who were appalled at the girl's apparent actions, the account was deleted (see screenshots).
