image for Russia Invades Atlanta: Putin Denies Russia Involved

Atlanta, GA - Yesterday, Russian military forces invaded the city of Atlanta, GA, in what Russia says is a simple map error.

There is a country named Georgia that shares a border with Russia on the north, and Turkey on the west. The country of Georgia is separated from the country Ukraine by a portion of Russia.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said the invasion of the city of Atlanta was the unfortunate result of an error reading a map. Putin went on to deny that Russia invaded either the state of Georgia or the country of Georgia.

Said Putin, "Had Russia invaded either of these so-called Georgias, it would have been the result of a mistake reading a map. But given that we invaded neither of them, obviously no mistake was made. Any Russians currently in either Georgia, whether the person is associated with the Russian military or not, are there purely for vacation."

When asked why the Russians in Atlanta entered the city in armored vehicles bearing Russian insignia, supported by Russian attack helicopters and jet fighters, Putin said that all such reports are lies perpetrated by the West to further soil and tarnish Russia's reputation in the world.

Putin's press secretary released a statement that included, "If a person from Britain vacations in the United States and rents a car or a recreational vehicle, no one says a thing. But let one Russian vacation in the United States and rent a tank and suddenly we're the bad guys."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
