Russian Media Claims Military Shot Down Meteor

» by in: Russia

It figures the Russian state controlled media would go out of their way to hype the Russian military’s capabilities after the incredible footage of the meteor that came down over the country today:

#RussianMeteor is one of many related topics that quickly began trending on Twitter early this morning after a meteorite crashed into Russia’s Ural mountains.

Also trending is #метеорит (Russian for meteorite) and other topics like # Chelyabinsk, the region where the meteorite fell.

Not gonna lie, the video footage and photos that are being posted online are amazing, but that’s not the whole story.

If you check Twitter right now, what’s also being discussed widely is whether a Russian air defense unit shot down the meteorite.

According to the Russian news site RT, “a missile salvo reportedly blew the meteorite to pieces at an altitude of 20 kilometers.”

Nothing has been officially confirmed, but as you can guess, there are a lot of skeptics.

And “Yes”, as rad as it sounds, you can count me among the skeptics. []

    Our Russian partners don’t want to negotiate further nuclear arms cuts, because we are so superior in non-nuclear precision weapons. Chief of staff General Valery Gerasimov spoke at a conference in Moscow. Vladimir Isachenkov reported the big story.
