At about 22:00 (apparently on 30 October), the unit’s servicemen heard several explosions and then saw the wreckage of two helicopters scattered around.
“The explosion was so powerful that the fragments of the fuselage were scattered 200 metres around. It is unknown for what reason the Ka-52 helicopters exploded,” Baza writes.
