A video from state broadcaster Supine shows the panic that followed as people fled Chernihiv fearing the northern Ukrainian city was under Russian attack.
But it was not a new bombardment by Vladimir Putin’s forces. In fact, local children have been allowed to operate a lethal rocket-propelled grenade launcher with devastating consequences.
A ten-year-old boy pulled the trigger, reportedly leaving him and his 12-year-old brother in need of urgent medical attention.
Three were injured when the anti-tank launcher, an exhibit at the fair, exploded.
An interviewee was seen in television footage reacting as the role-playing game went off in the background before running from the scene with the crowd behind her.
War comes to the fairgrounds after the children of Chernihiv were allowed to play with guns, causing a terrible explosion. One woman interviewed is shown reacting as the role-playing game kicks in in the background before she walks away from the camera and dozens of others file out of the fairgrounds.
