Even after almost a year and a half since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, and numerous criminal cases for guiding enemy strikes, there are still people in Ukraine filming Russian missile strikes.
A resident of the city of Odesa turned out to be one of them, for whom the destruction of the city’s civil infrastructure by the aggressor country turned out to be “great entertainment.”
While relaxing with his girlfriend on the balcony of an apartment building, he could not film any explosion until the long-awaited missile fell somewhere behind a residential area.
This caused genuine admiration for both the cameraman and his girlfriend since now they could boast the captured footage on social networks.
However, their joy was overshadowed by the arrival of officers of Ukraine’s SBU security service who explained to them the inadmissibility of such actions.
The perpetrator had to apologize and hopefully he will not have any desire to make such videos in the future.
