"Regarding Abu Kamal, this is not the only case when the US spares terrorists", Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov was quoted as saying by Russia's official TASS news agency on Tuesday.

The game in question is none other than AC-130 Gunship Simulator for Android and iOS.

"British researcher Eliot Higgins of investigative site Bellingcat was among the first to find a YouTube clip of "Special Ops Squadron" showing that Russia's defense ministry shared a cropped screenshot as an "irrefutable" proof", evidenced most clearly by identical text appearing in both the video game footage and Moscow's photo of the Islamic State convoy. After the images were called out by sharp-eyed readers on social media the Ministry of Defense immediately began taking the posts down.

"I would say the Russian Ministry of Defense statements are about as accurate as their air campaign". Here are the best war games on PC.

The song that details this fall-out is titled "This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things", and she explains her side in verse two. And the rest of the tracks don't disappoint in the tea-spilling department. "I LOVE YOU @LauraKHettiger".

Russian Federation re-published the video writing, "The U.S. are actually covering the ISIS combat units to recover their combat capabilities, redeploy, and use them to promote the American interests in the Middle East". "All content subject to change".

It repeated the claim it was "irrefutable evidence that U.S. are actually covering Isis [IS] combat units to recover their combat capabilities, redeploy, and use them to promote the American interests in the Middle East". The statement wasn't even fully cropped out of the images that Russian Federation tweeted.

The ministry is investigating its civil employee who attached a wrong photo to illustrate the ministry's statement on Abu Kamal.

"We find this behavior particularly disappointing and inconsistent with the spirit of the November 11 joint statement by the President of the United States and the President of the Russian Federation", said Maj.
