Russiαn Hind attack helicopter pulled from Kyiv waters
Ukrαiniαn emergency service recovered from the bottom of the Kyiv Reservoir the wreckage of a Russiαn Mi-24/35 Hind attack helicopter that was shot down during the Russiαn invasion of Ukrαine.
The wreckage of the Russiαn attack helicopter that was shot down by Ukrαiniαn Soldiers in February has been found in the Kyiv reservoir just north of the Ukrαiniαn capital.
The State Border Guard Service of Ukrαine said on Thursday that the emergency service used a naval boat to tow the Russiαn attack helicopter, which they lifted on buoys from the bottom of the reservoir.
Ukrαiniαn journalist Illia Ponomarenko shared footage showing the wreckage of a Mil Mi−24/35 Hind helicopter gunship lifted from Kyiv reservoir.
“One of those many shot down during the Battle of Kyiv,” Ponomarenko added.
The battle of Kyiv was part of the Kyiv offensive in the 2022 Russiαn invasion of Ukrαine for control of Kyiv, the capital city of Ukrαine, and surrounding districts. The battle lasted from 24 February 2022 to 2 April 2022 and ended with the defeat and withdrawal of Russiαn forces.
