Watch These Two Russian Helicopters Accidentally Attack Spectators On The Ground

No one dreams of being attacked by anyone or anything. A single honey bee or a dragonfly coming your way can be enough for you to lose your senses or at the minimum be very annoyed. In a recent incident, a couple of Russian helicopters just attacked random civilians and vehicles firing unguided rockets at them.

Two different videos of the incident were filmed showing the helicopter flying low and towards people. One of the helicopters then fired a couple of missiles and hit a bystander. According to news, “At least two cars burned down, two people were seriously injured, they are now hospitalized. The victims were most likely journalists.”

The incident is however denied by the Russian Defense Ministry, a report from which claims that “all social media messages about ‘rounds on a crowd of journalists,’ ‘a large number of seriously wounded’ are either a deliberate provocation or someone’s personal stupidity.” It also said that the video footage “recorded an event that occurred at another time when army aviation helicopter crews practiced ground attacks as part of a tactical exercise.”

The press office maintains that only a truck was hit and no people were injured. What is the truth? We do not know. But we do get to witness a bizarre attack of helicopters gone astray, at least apparently.
