As can be seen from the presented personnel, Russian Mi-35M helicopters caused enormous damage to militants, not only firing missiles at the camp, but also firing them with double-barreled air guns. According to preliminary information, the bodies of dozens of terrorists were found on the site of the former camp, and as the source emphasizes, only a few managed to escape.
