Video footage of Polina Menshikh actress killed

A terrifying cellphone video captures the moment a Russian actress, performing for Vladimir Putin’s marines in seized Donetsk, was killed on stage by a Ukrainian missile in what has been called a “revenge” attack.

The video, which was captured on Sunday and was made public by the Russian news channel Astra, shows 40-year-old Polina Menshikh performing guitar and singing in a packed cultural center in the town of Kumachovo, which is located less than 40 miles from the front lines.

A huge smash is heard a short while later, and as the camera shakes and goes black, a man’s voice can be heard saying, “F–k!” in Russian.

Since then, both the St. Petersburg theater Portal and the state-run news service TASS have reported Menshikh’s passing.

“It is with great pain that we inform you that Polina Menshikh … died yesterday at a performance in the Donbas as a result of shelling,” the theater said in a statement Monday.

Using a HIMARS missile system provided by the US, the Ukrainian military launched the lethal attack on Sunday, which resulted in the deaths of at least 25 Russian soldiers and the injuries of over 100 more people who were present for the military awards ceremony and concert honoring Russia’s yearly Day of Missile Forces and Artillery.

On his Telegram account, Robert Brovdi, the head of the Ukrainian airborne reconnaissance group “Birds of Magyar,” stated that the attack on Sunday was carried out as “revenge for the 128th [Brigade].”

In reference to the Russian missile attack on November 3, which occurred during a military awards ceremony commemorating Ukraine’s Artillery Forces Day and resulted in the deaths of at least twenty troops from the 128th Mountain Assault Brigade in the Zaporizhzhia region, Brovdi was speaking.

Volodymyr Zelensky, the president of Ukraine, described the incident as a “tragedy that could have been avoided.”

On Wednesday, the 810th Marine Brigade in Russia was the target of a deadly retaliatory strike that the Ukrainian military has verified.

According to the Ukrainian Armed Forces’ Strategic Communications Department, “Ukraine’s defense forces swiftly identified the location of the Russians’ celebration and heartily congratulated them” on Telegram.

Brovdi said that at the port city of Sevastopol, in occupied Crimea, where the 810th Brigade is based, obituaries for the dead Russian marines will soon be published.

Russian military commanders came under fire from a pro-Russian military blogger who referred to them as “untaught idiots” for holding the awards ceremony so close to the combat lines and failing to foresee Ukraine’s retaliation.

“The outcome is obvious — the adversary used HIMARS to target people, including the late Russian actress Polina Menshikh,” the writer complained.

“Almost two years of war, and the untaught idiots still do not know what to do and what not to do,” he added.
