The Ministry of Defense does not confirm the allegations of the alleged death of a serviceman in an incident with a helicopter in Syria

The photo is illustrative.



Allegations appeared on the network that a Russian military helicopter fell in the Syrian Arab Republic. Messages of this nature are published by the Telegram channel Mash.

If you believe this information, the Russian Aerospace Forces helicopter fell about a couple of kilometers from the Russian military base - in the area of ​​the settlements of Kasimiya and Rakhaniya. This is not about the Khmeimim base. The alleged death of one crew member is reported.

It should be emphasized that the Russian defense department at this moment does not confirm the news of the helicopter crash and the death of the pilot. According to the Ministry of Defense, the helicopter had problems due to a technical problem. Added that no one opened fire on the helicopter. The Ministry of Defense calls the incident a forced landing of a rotorcraft in the province of Haseke.

Ministry of Defense of Russia:

The life of the pilots is not in danger. According to the crew's report, there was no fire impact on the helicopter.

Other sources say the forced landing took place in the northeast of the Syrian Arab Republic.

As you can see, the information is still extremely contradictory. Additional information on the incident with the Russian helicopter is expected, including data on the base in Syria.

According to published information, we are talking about a Mi-35 helicopter, which made a planned patrol in the northeast of the SAR.

      Yes, it seems (thank God) everyone is alive. I looked through the news feeds, there was no news about the death of the pilots.
      The information about the crash of the Russian Mi-35 helicopter in the Syrian province of Haseke is untrue. Thus, the Ministry of Defense of Russia reacted to the messages that appeared earlier in an interview with "Lenta.ru".
      As stated in the military department, in fact, the helicopter had to make an emergency landing during a planned patrol. At the same time, the incident was associated with technical reasons, there was no fire impact on the helicopter, the ministry stressed.
      They also added that the search and rescue group promptly delivered the Mi-35 crew to the helicopter base airfield. “Nothing threatens the lives of the pilots,” the Ministry of Defense said.

      Never a helicopter pilot. But here is the Mi-35 cockpit

      Everything is modern and beautiful.
      What is THIS, I don't know

      Everything is analog. For example, the radio station control panel circled in red, on which the channels were tuned with iron hooks for each frequency bit. This has not been done for 40 years.
