    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.
