200 Russian tanks found abandoned in forest

A news website near the city of Yekaterinburg posted a video of the forgotten tanks showing passers-by clambering inside the vehicles and playing with empty ammunition belts. The only items that seemed to be missing were live rounds and the keys to the tanks' ignitions."There are tanks all over the forest, abandoned," an unnamed reporter on the video says. "If you need one, come and get it."...................Telegraph

200 abandoned tanks????

MAN O MAN I WISH I COULD GO TO RUSSIA AND GET ONE OF THOSE TANKS MYSELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DARN!!!

Usual Western PROPAGANDA!
1st nobody is hiding it RT has youtube video on subject that created "news sensation" based on GOSSIP of the few villagers!
Nobody really knows if those tanks are in driving condition!
Nobody have asked army either!
And tanks are already taken away on the special trucks!
----------------
"Russia's top military commanders suggested the country did not need half of its 20,000 tanks and might scrap many older models"
-------------------
Western PROPAGANDA again!
"top military commanders" did NOT decide ANYTHING!
That is personal order few years ago by President Medevedev executed by Minister Ivanov!
Few years ago has been decided that as part of the REFORM of the army - they'll scrap most of their 22 000 tanks.
That has been decided as part of military REORGANIZATION & modernization of whole Russian army!
Army will keep only 6000 tanks the rest goes in reserve and old ones SOLD to Africa and other poor countries that can't afford new tanks or scraped!

So much about Western PROPAGANDA

Jaco, what the f*k are you talking about?
