Actually, this sort of story about checking the strength of air rifles could have been told by a million Russians. True, the consequences are not always like this.

More than likely, he was Russian or Armenian, considering the region.

“All the same, the police have decided to conduct an inquiry into the facts of the incident.” Are they going to shoot him in the other foot?
