    The Russian Defense Ministry described on Wednesday Charlie Hebdo's caricature of the Tu-154 crash as a 'poorly-created abomination' which is unworthy of attention.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo published earlier on Wednesday a caricature on the Russian Defense Ministry Tu-154 aircraft crash in the Black Sea depicting the falling aircraft and a musician from the Alexandrov military choir, who is making a wailing sound "aaaaaa." The caption says "The repertoire of the army choir is expanding."

    "It is degrading for any human being to even pay attention to such a poorly-created abomination," ministry's spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said in a statement.

      Just don't read this CHARLATAN COMEDIAN. Perhaps his death should be celebrated in Russia.

      there is one thing Russia still ignoring. When propagandist, wise mouths etc, get hit back, then they whine on no end.
      Just return the favor.
      MSM? Do same things back too. Dedicate a satirical section to twist all U.S news. and interviews. Same to E.U. Begin ending west trade. Add all in sanctions. Oh they will WHINE on no end.
      U.S is attacking EAEU.. With WTO.
      Russia's response? OUR PARTNERS AND ALLIES..... REALLY.

      Keep in mind that "Charlie Hebdo" is a Jewish rag. It would have been out of business a long time ago, but the "massacre" inside saved their bacon.

      I believe in free speech but don't these people have any decency? I don't want to see any "pray for France" posts on social media next time that newspaper gets attacked

      dc801, The free speech is an American BS invention.
      In every country which is allied with America the free speech is forbidden because if people complain about anything, they will loose their jobs or Police will arrive and arrest anyone.
      Not to mention that ALL news are carefully edited and manipulated before going online!
