A video clip of a Russian soldier in action has sparked laughter on Twitter, for showing what not to do when throwing a hand grenade.
The clip shows a Russian soldier in the woods, being taught how to throw a grenade, which he then unpins and tosses toward a field. As commenters remarked on the video, though, the result was “Trees 1; Ivan 0.”
That’s because the grenade bounces off a tree branch, and explodes near the soldier, who managed to duck the incoming.
