Russians don't seem to realize how much of a kicking/ bloody nose they will get if they tried to invade the former USSR states, because of the hatred for them. If they ever mess with Poland, boy oh boy, they will see what a bloody nose really means - their real option would mean to just nuke it.
Their efforts in Crimea and eastern Ukraine weren’t that spectacular; Crimea was quite an easy site to bag; fighting in eastern Ukraine Has yielded very little territory to the “little green men” in spite of the full support of the Soviet state.
 
It does. I was impressed by the presence of mind of the Dad who told his child to lay down and cover their ears. Not everyone would remember, when caught up with the spectacle of seeing the explosions.
He just missed out the bit about opening the mouth ;)
Would pressure even reach that far I wonder?

Video footage of these incidents reveals that the rural population of Russia is in fact comprised of gap toothed pikeys, who would be quite at home with their kin in East Anglia.
Amended for genealogical accuracy.
 
I refer the reader to my earlier post re


...and that is why they converted an armoured vehicle (ACRV) into a fire fighting one...

That s a very quick conversion, or had they knocked a few up? Just in case t bomb dump were to go pop.

Would this be the same school of thought that produces the following:

Reporter: "So, your wife and family have been raped and murdered, your house destroyed, all your possessions stolen. Can you tell the people at home your feelings right now?"
Didn't something like that actually happen? As I recall it was in the Katanga uprising when the rebels got a bit rapey with the colonists, nuns and anyone else with a pulse. The traumatised women and kids were taken to the local airport for evacuation, where they were swooped on by the international media's finest.

One reporter looking for an interview was heard shouting, "OK, who here has been raped and speaks English?"

A recognised variant of the MTLBu series - they have been in service for quite a while now.

Having worked for way too long in rural Russia in the past I can confirm this is pretty much true! Not sure if it's caused by too much contact with environmental contamination or inbreeding or a combination of both!
 
no points for the painter who failed to properly mask off the windcreens; must be fun trying to drive thru a mist of red paint. Refer him to the modelling pages here for some tuition from the experts.
 
This is becoming rather more a habit than an accident.

'Aug. 9 (UPI) -- For the third time in four days, Russian authorities responded Friday to an explosion at a military outpost. Officials said the blast occurred at a Siberian ammunition depot in the Krasnoyarsk region, injuring nine people. The state-run TASS news agency reported two blasts.

'Nearby residents could see smoke for miles and authorities evacuated the nearby village of Kamenka. Four of the nine injured were hospitalized. The Russian military said a lightning strike first caused a fire, and then the explosion. Authorities said a separate explosion at the same site Mondaydestroyed the depot's lightning shield. A different blast Thursday killed two Russian soldiers at a military range in northwest Russia.'

Michael Buerk - allegedly.

Russian nuclear agency ups death toll in missile test explosion
The Defense Ministry initially released a lower death toll for the accident on Thursday. Details remain sparse, and it is unclear whether or not radiation was released as a result of the explosion.

Russia's state nuclear agency Rosatom announced Saturday that five people had died and another three were injured in an explosion at a missile test site in the Arctic that took place on Thursday.

The announcement came after the Defense Ministry had said that only two individuals died, with another seven injured.

Officials have released few details of the explosion, which took place at a missile test site near Nyonoksa, a village on the White Sea in the northwest corner of the county.

The site has been used since the Soviet era for testing maritime missiles.

My, my. Mossad are being busy little boys, aren't they? :twisted:

Update.

'The failed missile test that ended in an explosion killing five scientists last week on Russia’s White Sea involved a small nuclear reactor, according to a top official at the institute where they worked. The institute is working on small-scale power sources that use “radioactive materials, including fissile and radioisotope materials” for the Defense Ministry and civilian uses, Vyacheslav Soloviev, scientific director of the institute, said in a video shown by local TV.

'The men, who will be buried Monday, were national heroes and the “elite of the Russian Federal Nuclear Center,” institute Director Valentin Kostyukov said in the video, which was also posted on an official website in Sarov, a high-security city devoted to nuclear research less than 400 kilometers (250 miles) east of Moscow. The blast occurred Aug. 8 during a test of a missile that used “isotope power sources” on an offshore platform in the Arkhangelsk region, close to the Arctic Circle, Russia’s state nuclear company Rosatom said over the weekend. The Defense Ministry initially reported two were killed in the accident, which it said involved testing of a liquid-fueled missile engine. The ministry didn’t mention the nuclear element.'

I'm reading 'Midnight in Chernobyl' and it's quite scary how many risks the Soviets took with nuclear stuff. Seems like they haven't changed all that much.
