In the Kharkiv region, 10 kilometers from the border with Russia, a combat helicopter was shot down

An unknown combat helicopter was shot down 10 kilometers from the Russian-Ukrainian border.

An unidentified combat helicopter was shot down by anti-aircraft weapons in the area of ​​​​the village of Liptsy, located approximately 10 kilometers from the border with Russia. A video appeared on the Web showing the moment of the downed helicopter crash and the continued shooting of false thermal targets.

In the video footage presented, apparently taken from an unmanned aerial vehicle, you can see a combat helicopter on the ground, which is engulfed in fire. The specialists also managed to fix the firing of heat traps. This indicates that the helicopter crew tried to escape from the shelling of air defense systems. However, in all likelihood, the missile aimed at the target was not equipped with a heat-seeking head, and therefore the evasive maneuver could not be performed.

At the moment, it was not possible to find out any details of what happened, and equally it was not possible to establish the type of downed helicopter and the fate of the crew on board, however, in all likelihood, the helicopter was destroyed while trying to violate the border of airspace.
