Ukrainian forces shoot down two Ka-52 Russian helicopters over the weekend
Ukraine announced that its air defense units had destroyed two of Russia's Ka-52 "Alligator" all-weather attack helicopters.
“Units of the anti-aircraft missile troops of the Khortytsia operational-strategic troop group faithfully perform their duties even on weekends, as a result, two Ka-52 fire support helicopters were destroyed on Saturday and Sunday,” the Joint Forces Task Force said in a statement on Facebook.
The statement doesn’t disclose the sectors of the front where Russia has lost two more helicopters nicknamed “a flying tank” in Russia.
Ukrainian forces have destroyed at least 194 Russian helicopters since February 24 when Russia launched a large-scale military assault against Ukraine, according to Defense Ministry. (ILKHA)
