The "bird" was eliminated: a new video of the downing of a Ka-52 near Robotyno has appeared
New videos of the downing of a Russian Ka-52 Alligator helicopter near Robotyno in Zaporizhzhia have been posted online. On 17 August, the enemy aircraft was shot down by soldiers of the 47th Separate Mechanised Brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, the Magura.
In particular, the published footage shows the moment when a Ukrainian shell hit the Alligator, as well as the evacuation of the pilot (to watch the video, scroll to the end of the news).
According to the video, there was nothing left of the downed helicopter, and a large fire broke out at the crash site and a tall column of black smoke rose.
Russian propagandists claim that the Ka-52 commander ejected and the navigator was killed.
