Strange Craft Flying Over Russia

Strange Craft Flying Over Russia

Here’s a video that shows a strange craft breaking through the ominous dark clouds above some Russian city. My initial thought is that this aircraft is less alien-like and more of an experimental military or weather drone. Especially when you have an aircraft that has systematically blinking lights (aviation lights).

At first glance this looks like some flat-shaped alien aircraft with a revolving light around its perimeter. However, after watching the video over again, I can make out the silhouette of a helicopter against the soft glow of the clouds. Since the quality of the video is horrendous, I can only assume this. For all I know this could be the lights of a military bomber.

Any sharp-eyed readers out there that can identify this strange craft?
