No, this is not 1956. It’s downtown Budapest just yesterday. Someone on the Committee to Organise Memorials to Revolutions in a REALLY STUPID WAY had the grand idea of stationing a soviet tank int he heart of Budapest on a day that everyone knew would bring trouble. Even better: that someone made sure that the tank, which was supposed to be a peaceful souvenir from the old communist days, would be in full working condition. EVEN BETTER: he left a bit of petrol in the tank. Of the tank.
Incredibly noone was killed, but the rioters who managed to get into the tank went for the rides of their lives until the petrol ran out and police were finally able to take over the vehicle. Luckily it was captured on film, so it’s sure to become the highlight of those police chase videos for years to come.
