According to a statement by the Afghan Defense Ministry spokesman, Gafur Ahmad Javid, the incident occurred in the Maruf district of Kandahar Province during the take-off of a helicopter carrying about twenty Afghan soldiers. According to official data, the helicopter caught fire in the air as a result of a technical malfunction, after which it made an emergency landing, resulting in the death of two people.

      Russian equipment poured from them much more often, as the Afghans themselves have repeatedly said, the only plus of our helicopters, according to them, is that they are easier to repair and maintain. hi

      Mi-Xnumx staff has recently fallen / been knocked down by the same. 17 dead, including an officer group from Kabul and a general commander of forces in the province.
      The bodies, by the way, have not been returned yet. Power operation - the Americans refused to support themselves on the ground, and negotiations came to a standstill. The place of fall is a mountainous region deep in the Taliban’s control zone.

      in recent cases, it was Mi 8 (the same Moldavian with the Ukrainian crew).
      I don’t see confirmation that the Afghan Air Force lost Chinook. Do the Chinooks and the Air National Corps of Afghanistan?
      Most likely mi 17 or mi 8.

            Well, for example, in our civilian Americans saved 10 million Russians from starvation when they landed in Vladivostok with humanitarian food. Let's start at least with this .... Russia can boast of something like that? hi

              Do not make people laugh. The states were engaged not in salvation, but in intervention, until they were expelled from there

                There was no intervention, there was not even a single shot in the direction of the "Reds" from the Americans. Learn the mat part. The only thing the Americans were doing was bringing and distributing food, this is FACT.

                  Even Wikipedia writes about intervention
                  USA - from August 1918 participation in the SPSR, Arkhangelsk, Murmansk (withdrawn June-October 1919). By agreement between the invaders, the Trans-Siberian Railway was guarded in sections from Mysovsk to Verkhneudinsk and from Iman to Vladivostok (January-March 1920 were withdrawn). The total number of American troops in the North of Russia is up to 6000 people, in Siberia up to 9000 people

              According to various estimates, from 2 to 7 million US citizens (exact numbers are still classified) and not counted the number of immigrants who did not manage to obtain citizenship died of starvation during the Great Depression in the United States. How many would die if it were not for the supply of food from the USSR, only one gentleman knows. Under these deliveries, the United States recognized the USSR, and the Soviet Union for these deliveries bought idle factories in the United States, dismantled them and moved them to the USSR with American hands.

      For the Afghans, war, something like a national sport or a hobby like extreme sports, will not be Americans with the company, they will shoot each other - they live like that. hi

    Meanwhile, representatives of the Taliban, an organization banned in Russia, stated that the helicopter was shot down during takeoff by the militants, and then crashed to the ground.
    I am inclined to this version and do not exclude the possibility that the Chinese MANPADS attached missiles to this. China is actually through Pakistan

    When we were there, "the whole almost civilized world" condemned us (this despite the fact that we didn’t transport drugs to the land, as they are now). But when the “FORCES OF GOOD AND FREE FROM Tyranny” entered there so immediately the fight against tyranny and so on ((((((
