Helicopters of the invaders came under “friendly” fire from the Russian air defense.
In the Kherson region, the air defense of the invaders shot down a Russian Ka-52 helicopter.
This is reported by the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
“Over the past 24 hours, three Russian Ka-52s in the Kherson region intended to attack our units, but … struck at their own. Returning, the invaders’ helicopters came under” friendly “fire from frightened air defense crews of the Russian troops. Russian air defense has never been accurate, therefore the invaders shot down only one of their three attack Ka-52s. It’s a pity,” the General Staff noted.
Recall that earlier Lviv paratroopers shot down an enemy helicopter for $16 million. The target was destroyed by an anti-aircraft gunner of the 80th separate air assault brigade of the Airborne Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine from the Igla portable anti-aircraft missile system.
Note that Russian planes and helicopters do not fly into the airspace over the Ukrainian territory, which is directly under the control of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
