Syria; Evidence points at Russia for the bombing of the UN food convoy outside Aleppo.

(Syria) I'd like to say the world was shocked over the destruction of the UN convoy (31 trucks) delivering aid to the non-combatants held hostage inside Aleppo.  But to be honest, people are no longer shocked by what transpires in the Middle East.

Anyway, the Russian propaganda machine went into overdrive by first claiming that the convoy was carrying arms and then that the attack may have been carried out by a US Predator Drone  What the Russians forgot to mention is that a Predator drone can only carry a maximum of 6 Griffin missiles in its best weapons carry as the Griffins warhead only contains a 13lb fragmentation warhead which is why it is used as a precision low-collateral damage weapon.  Yes the Predator can carry Hellfire missiles but it can only carry 2 of them, the more advanced Reaper  is able to carry 4 Hellfire missiles, not enough to take out 31 trucks.

The Russians to this day have denied they had a hand in attacking this convoy I quote the Russian Defence Ministry as of last Tuesday:
Russian and Syrian warplanes did not carry out any airstrikes on a UN humanitarian aid convoy in the southwest of Aleppo,”
Which they followed with:
“We have closely studied the video footage from where the incident took place and we did not find any signs of any ammunition having hit the convoy. There are no craters, while the vehicles have their chassis intact and they have not been severely damaged, which would have been the case from an airstrike,” 
Funny that, you see Ivan, others haven't bothered with looking at video coverage and actually sent people to investigate the area and guess what they have found, Russian air launched weapons such as:
OFAB 250-270

S-5 aerial rockets

The first picture shows what looks like the tail assembly of the Russian OFAB 250-270 dumb bomb. Here is a RT video of Russian planes loaded for bear. Note the rear of the bombs, In fact blogger 'Bellingcat' does a much better job than me, in pointing the finger of Blame at Moscow.

The S-5 rockets, why there are standard issue for Russian Helicopters , which are also used by....Syria.

Its appears that the Russians lie like a cheap Russian Watch
