Quote: "We’re back in the Donetsk region.
And we are relentlessly destroying various Colorado demons [a reference to the Russian striped ribbon that looks like a Colorado beetle]. And not only from our land. There are plenty of these pests in the sky too, but now there is one less.
The Ruscists’ Su-25 decided to ask, "And who is here?" The answer was immediate. It hit them loud and clear. Because in the right hands, the Igla MANPADS is a good tool for clearing all sorts of junk out of the sky."
