US drone collision: Russians rejoiced as if they had won the war against NATO
Russia carried out another provocation with an incident from the United States in the Black Sea. At the same time, the country is very afraid of the aggression of the American leadership in its direction.
Igor Yakovenko, a Russian opposition journalist, told Channel 24 about this. According to him, the Russians know how to rejoice in their pseudo victories.
Russians rejoice in “victory”
Igor Yakovenko noted that the shooting down of an American drone was a real triumph in Russia.
“You see, about these two Russian fighters – it was all licked, described how they flew up, flew around the drone, doused it with kerosene, tore off its tail and drowned,” he said.
In his opinion, such a “victory” of Russia has become a real holiday for the Russian information space, and especially for propagandists.
There was an impression that the war was won, Russia defeated NATO,” he stressed.
Yakovenko explained that the Russians are practically claiming US dominance.

Russians are not so brave
Igor Yakovenko added that at the same time, Russia is silent about things that do not testify to its power and indestructibility.
According to him, no one mentioned that a huge American bomber flew almost near St. Petersburg, armed with missiles. He could destroy almost the entire city.
And not a single heroic Russian fighter took to the air, did not make an attempt to fly around this bomber, pour kerosene or something else on it, he stressed.
In his opinion, the Russians sat quietly, like mice, and did not even try to do something, probably a fright.
