      The video, of course it’s good, we’ll laugh, but you can wait on June 22nd, they very often flew away, then there would be no laughing matter.

    So do not wait for the mattress hunters to push the horned bear in their den. Probably sure that they will have time to bounce to their island. No. Well, of course, brave guys. crying

    If we drop containers with fat masses on their air spies and shoot them at the engines of frozen dead ravens, maybe they will stop flying near us? what

      When you post something from a third-party resource, first see for yourself, or read the comments for the video. The shadow is definitely similar to the F-18, but not like the SU-30. And so they fool people's heads.

    It is high time for Russia to acquire Air Force bases in Cuba or Mexico and keep its “partners” in good shape.

    Mattress pilots stopped giving medication for constipation. Now everything happens naturally, with the approach of the Russian interceptors. And diapers are in demand.
