Russian aircraft bomb their own side. (MoD Defence intelligence update 10th January 2024)

Russia has added a new expression to the lexicon of euphemisms used by official statements attempting to hide a ghastly mistake - "abnormal discharge of aviation ammunition" for bombing your own side.

Anyone who is following the war in Ukraine will have noted that one of the few things the present Russian armed forces are good at is bombing and killing civilians. The latest MoD intelligence bulletin gives two instances of Russian planes bombing, respectively, Russian civilians and Ukrainian civilians in the area of occupied Ukraine which Russia claims is now part of Russia.
