The command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported the details of the death of six Ukrainian pilots in the Donbas

Two Mi-8 helicopters of the Ukrainian Air Force crashed near Kramatorsk. The command of the Eastern Group of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported the details of the death in the Donbass of six Ukrainian pilots who were on board combat vehicles.

The official version of the incident was voiced for the Ukrainian media by the group's speaker Ilya Yevlash.



Two Mi-8 helicopters performed a combat mission

- he said.

According to the speaker, the Russian Su-35 fighter, which suddenly appeared next to the helicopters, was responsible for the death of the pilots who took off to carry out a combat mission. Since the Ukrainian pilots were aware of the threat that their combat vehicles could be shot down, they, according to Yevlash, tried to somehow prevent this. They decided to make an emergency landing, but something went wrong, resulting in a plane crash.


More precise circumstances of the death of the pilots will be announced when the investigative actions are completed. It can be assumed that due to the sudden appearance of the Russian Aerospace Forces aircraft, the Ukrainian pilots were frightened and panicked. This led them to wrong actions. As a result, the Armed Forces of Ukraine lost two helicopters and six combat pilots.


This incident happened on August 29 in the Kramatorsk region.

Earlier, the speaker of the 18th brigade of the army aviation Armed Forces of the Ukrainian Armed Forces Evgeny Rakita.

    Did two Ukrainian MI-8s make an emergency landing in parts? Kramatorsk has a fairly developed air defense system, or did it. Quite often, the air defense systems of the Armed Forces of Ukraine snapped at our Geranki and cruise missiles.

            That's what you think, but it's not true. It is very visible in the IR spectrum. On some microwave radars, even birds can be seen, but they are even smaller than geraniums and there is no metal at all.

      The version of the Su-35 over Kramatorsk looks dubious.
      What should he do there? Scatter cast iron on the airfield?
      Su-25s are more suitable for this, but they were not seen in such feats either.
      Most likely, the story about the Su-35 seems to someone in Ukraine (to the flight director at the airport?) More beautiful than a banal violation of flight rules.

        Captain Pushkin. The FB does not have confirmation that the SU 35 was in the sky over Kramatorsk. He is making fun of how this happened. He does not send his stickers to the crew, which means there was no SU 35. He is making fun of the pilots of the Ukrainian Armed Forces - at 24 you will be a major!!!!

    Two Mi-8 helicopters of the Ukrainian Air Force crashed near Kramatorsk... ...the culprit in the death of pilots who flew out to carry out a combat mission was a Russian Su-35 fighter, which suddenly appeared next to the helicopters.
    Now let's compare
    On October 27, 1984, the official Iraqi newspaper Baghdad Observer reported that near the village of Ein Hosh, a Mi-24 helicopter shot down an Iranian F-4 Phantom II jet fighter .... An Iranian pilot in a fighter armed with Shrike missiles to destroy radars attacked the "Flying Tank "- this name was given to the Mi-24 for powerful armor. The helicopter was flying at extremely low altitude, and therefore the first fighter attack failed. The Iranian pilot decided to shoot the Mi-24 with a 20-mm six-barreled Vulcan cannon.
    Noticing the F-4 "coming in" on himself, the Iraqi pilot did not perform an evasive maneuver, but "turned up his nose" and, pressing the trigger, fired a "cloud" of S-5 unguided missiles towards the enemy aircraft. One of these missiles, hitting the fuselage, turned the Iranian F-4 into a pile of debris.
    The level of preparation is immediately visible, I don’t agree that there were no more precedents, but they could have tried to enter the annals of history, and only LJJJ, and this is real LJJJ, as Winnie the Pooh said. laughing

      In some report on TV, they showed how the Mi-8 of the Armed Forces of Ukraine fired a volley of NURSs at the rate of the Ka-52. Didn't hit, but our pilot commented that this was not the first time.

        “...a salvo of NURS at the Ka-52 course...”
        Well, that is, shot from the side. It’s not so easy to get there, you know! You need to move the aiming point forward by the amount of lead. To do this, you need to know exactly the speed of the air target. Determining the speed of an unfamiliar helicopter is an impossible task in principle. So, all this shooting is “for luck”.
        For the Iraqi, the task was simpler in terms of calculations and more difficult morally. He shot head-on when there was no need to take any lead. The main thing is not to shit yourself at the enemy's gunpoint.

Only, it seems, the vandals have such brave and skillful pilots that they are afraid of their own shadow, because the plane didn’t work on them at all ... And they still didn’t seem to have time to work out the landing, only takeoff ... lol

    Do the pig-faces have three pilots in the eight?
    Something is wrong with AriChmetics, in my opinion.
    It’s like a riddle: three policemen were riding on a boat and capsized, how many policemen drowned?
    The answer is six.
    Three more during the investigative experiment.
    There is no need to make mistakes about such things when publishing in the media; in the end, everything looks stupid.

    Some kind of set of words without meaning! What combat missions can Ukrainian Armed Forces helicopters have in Kramatorsk? Fire? About whom? Transport? Few roads? What were they doing there, and even as a couple? Further: “... Su 35 suddenly appeared...”. What is this nonsense? Where did it appear? Next to them? Where? At what height? For a helicopter, this is less than 200 m nearby. For a Su35, this is not nearby. It's already inside the plane! And most importantly, why would he fly so close to them when he could kill both of them from 60 km, at a time when no one would even think about the presence of a Russian Aerospace Forces fighter in the sky? In a word - some kind of unclouded stream of consciousness. Or nonsense of a gray mare. It’s a great pity that our media are reposting this blatant nonsense!
