Okay, let's see: When trying, and failing miserably, to take Afghanistan, they used "candy mines", anti-personnel munitions about the size of a AA battery, wrapped like candy. Now, in addition to the new "rape motels" of captured citizens, booby-trapping a child's piano completely tracks. Russia does not deserve to exist

You're probably thinking of the Butterfly mine.  God knows how many kids died or lost hands and eyes to those.

Iirc it wasn't on purpose it's "just" that the cluster mutintions looked a lot like toys due to the wings used to guide them. And before you get high and mighty during the opening months of the us Afghanistan war both unexploded cluster mutintions and humanitarian mre drops were in Bright yellow with English written on them so a lot of hungry people got exploded.

Never minding the tens and tens of millions of them still in Laos, and that the USA has put in almost no effort to clean up.

This is why Russia has kidnapped Ukrainians. They're hostages to be exchanged for Russian soldiers standing trial for war crimes.

Dave2042: So if it's a Russians-are-evil story, we'll overlook the fact that it's in the Daily Fail and believe it happened?


Well, actually......

If you google that grenade type you'll see it's for a 40mm grenade launcher, not a "pull the pin and throw" type.  Launched grenades require being shot out of their tube to arm the fuse, like in Saving Private Ryan when they were smacking mortar rounds against a steel plate before throwing them.  Those are also supposed to self detonate about 20 seconds after arming.

It would take a pretty talented EOD guy to make a piano activated booby trap out of one of those.

First thing I thought of. It sounds just like Putin. He really is an Bond villian. I can picture him doing it himself and wringing his hands. Why does he want the girl dead? Did she have the nerve to do something better then him?  He is such a jerk.

Could the hammer in a piano really set off a vog-25p grenade? Those are meant to detonate after being fired from a grenade launcher. I would assume it has a safety where the grenade doesn't activate until a few meters from the shooter like the US's 40mm grenades?

Would a Russian soldier reasonably know? Or are we potentially looking at propaganda?

Like I said 5 posts up, it would take a really talented EOD troop to rig a piano booby trap with that.

I dont think its even possible for the grenade to be triggered by a piano hammer as is, no matter what you do to it. Its detonator is a deceleration type, not an impact type, and if (big if) i looked at the cross sections right there isnt really any way you could rig it to trigger at such a soft impact without any external modifications

The thing is, while I believe soldiers from any country *would* do this, considering the source of the story and the level of propaganda on all sides during this invasion, I don't actually believe this one story.

Russia still sucks.

Which Americans do you think are cheering booby traps that kill civilians? And the first casualty of war is truth. I do critical they thinking with regards to articles like this, but I'm not going to single any of them out because I am glad Russia is getting it's arse kicked. Anyway, so which Americans are cheering booby traps that kill civilians?

They changed the colour of the food rations from yellow to salmon for that precise reason.

Tbh this is tame compared to other stories I've read in places that are not the Daily Fail. It totally tracks, but it doesn't make me think any less of them because they've already done so much worse.
