Russian Choppa Fires on Spectators

Accidental Russian helicopter attack on spectators during the latest Zapad-17 exercise in Belarus. The pedestrian in the video must have been killed but Russians never admitted fatalities.

No one was killed. Two true believers of communism were saved from cancer and denounced Jesus as the the Anti-Comm.

I've read this story. Macierewicz is a nutcase. Nobody uses nukes in military maneuvers anymore, because of the fallout. Both and Soviets and the American used nuclear weapons during military exercises in the 1950s. Most of the soldiers who participated have died from cancers and the survivors are very sick.

Nukes were used in the open in the 1950s because the military was ignorant of the scientific aspect and not fully aware of the consequences. Top army officers believe nukes were just like conventional bombs, except stronger. Today we know about the fallout and radiation but we belong to a different generation and we are better educated.

The fact that the chopper fired at pointblank range proves it was accidental because the flying debris could have downed him and his mate too, so he'd never have done it deliberate.
