Mangled wreckage from a Russian assault helicopter has been shown off by Ukrainian border guards who say they shot it down over the sea.
The chopper was apparently heading for a rendezvous with a warship when it was blown out of the sky.
The aircraft is believed to be an armed-to-the-teeth Ka-52, known as an Alligator in the Russian military.
The State Border Guard Service of Ukraine said in a statement on 5th May: “A helicopter belonging to the racists, which was heading for a warship, was brought ashore.
“Border guards continue to clean Ukraine of racist garbage – both biological and scrap metal.
“In the Kyiv region, border guards and colleagues from the Armed Forces of Ukraine caught a ‘crocodile’.
“This is what the racists called one of their combat helicopters, which Ukrainian defenders skilfully transformed into a submarine and sent to the same place where the Russian warship ended up.
“With the help of a naval boat, border guards towed the sunken helicopter. Later, this evidence of Moscow’s war crimes in Ukraine was brought to land.”
