A Russian soldier gave a middle finger of defiance to a drone that would later drop an explosive device on top of him.
The soldier was one of six soldiers maneuvering into a position outside Zaporizhzhia region of eastern Ukraine.
According to the Washington Examiner, the strike was conducted by special forces of the 15th Main Directorate of the Security Service of Ukraine.
The video of the incident, which shows a Russian soldier flipping off the drone before the aforementioned UAV drops a bomb on him, has been circulating on social media.
It was shared on social media by Anton Gerashchenko, an adviser to the minister of internal affairs of Ukraine.
Complete with quotable audio from the film Taken, the video was clearly released for propaganda purposes.
