Here is today’s Russian remake of Apocalypse Now.

Shot from another point of observation, footage of Russian Mil Mi-24 Hind gunships accompanied by some Mi-8 Hip helicopters allegedly invading Ukraine’s airspace in Crimea has emerged.

    “Russian remake of apocalypse now”.

    Hum David, so you think writing that kind of title will bring you more readers ?

      It’s fairly accurate no?

      The title is simply “New video shows 12 Russian Mi-24 and Mi-8 helicopters in Crimea”. I can’t see anything wrong with it. The other is a comment. You may like it or not.

        I dislike it quite a bit. It diminishes the importance of the news.

    Can anyone translate what is being said by the camera man?

    • krasnov

      At first he said that he was scared, and then he was excited and shouted something like “that’s fucking cool!”

    Oof. I really hope there’s a lot of talk going on amongst heads of nations right now. Fascinating machines, but I’d rather not see a new war…

    If those had been American choppers, we wouldn’t have a video to watch. Those guys shooting it would have been identified as terrorists and blow away off the roof they were filming from. Because freedom.

    REAL black choppers. Where are the loons alex jones etal

    Tell Vlad…..after my election I have more flexibility. President Medvedev: I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir Cuba next?

    Probably pre-positioning special forces. Mi-8s carrying troops, the Hinds to clear out the LZ if they have to. My money is on ballistic missile strikes on Ukr airfields, followed by air strikes. Anyone know the state, and skill level of Ukr’s air defence system? Unless they are very skilled I give the Ukr Air Force about a day of operations.

    So does anybody NOT think it’s an INVASION? Go ahead back it up. Sudetenland Putin style. Maybe Putins just dropping off his shirtless pix to everyone?!?
