Bombing of Voronezh

At the Cheryomushki airfield in Chita, while servicing the 23-millimeter aircraft gun of the Mi-8 helicopter on the ground, a single involuntary shot occurred outside the safe zone of the airfield.

There were no casualties, there was a partial collapse of one balcony, window glazing was broken on the other balcony.

The military is working with local authorities to compensate for the damage.


Meme ‘Bomb Voronezh’ is an analogue of the saying ‘Shoot yourself in the foot’. Who is the author of this meme is unknown, but the statement is erroneously attributed to Putin: “If NATO starts invading Syria, we will bomb Voronezh.”
