Watch Russians Write “For Paris” on Bombs Destined for Syria

A screen grab from a video posted online by the Russian Defense Ministry shows a member of the ground crew scrawling “For Paris” on a bomb.


Russian ground crew are scrawling “For Paris” and “For Our Guys” on bombs that are set to be dropped on ISIS targets in Syria, according to a video posted online by the country’s Defense Ministry. “Pilots and technicians of Hmeymim airbase have sent their message to terrorists by priority airmail,” notes a caption accompanying the post, according to Reuters.

Russian television also broadcast the video in which a man can be seen writing the messages on the bombs at the country’s airbase in Syria. Russian President Vladimir Putin has vowed to “punish” those responsible for the bomb that crashed a passenger jet over Egypt last month, killing 224 people, mostly Russians.
