A Russian Twitter user suggested her compatriots shoot down the C-17 military carriers in Pápa, Hungary. Her tweet has almost 70 thousand views and 830 comments. Shooting these planes down would be an escalation of the ongoing military conflict in Ukraine and a possible start of WW3.
The microblogger did not receive too many positive remarks under her post, portfolio.hu wrote. Many highlighted that shooting down NATO planes would not solve the situation. Thus, the user tweeting under the name of Oksana suggested that Russian aircraft should bomb military airfields.
In her original tweet, Oksana asked whether planes supplying ammunition and arms to Ukraine should be “taken care of” by the Russian military before they land. To support that question, she posted a photo of a C-17 Globemaster carrier serving the military alliance from the Pápa airbase in West Hungary. The military aircraft delivered artillery shells to Ukraine, based on a post shared by Ukraine’s government.
Here is her tweet:

According to portfolio.hu, she received harsh criticism from pro-Ukraine colleagues under the tweet. Users wrote that an act like that could trigger the start of WW3.
One of them said Russia would not be able to fight against the US military. Then Oksana said Russia should bomb the airfields where the carriers take off and land. A Norwegian top commenter said Russia should stop attacking its neighbours and start acting as a functioning member of the world’s community.
Finally, the Russian microblogger turned off the comments. C-17 carriers in Pápa are not Hungarian aircraft despite their base being in Hungary and obtaining a Hungarian mark. All NATO members can use those planes theoretically.
14 hours ago, she tweeted how she liked that her tweet angered NATO fans:
Darn, I love how a single tweet got 100s of NAFO busy-angry. https://t.co/KUAHzmTN7y
