      It is unknown what the destruction is? How damaged the fuselage is. It looks intact, but what is the state of the cabin? Soft-boiled or individual dents? Crumpled tail boom? Falling off blades mean that when the blades hit the ground, the gearbox and skew mechanisms have become unusable from a sharp impact, from such a gear teeth receive surface damage, cracks appear in the bearings and housing. Even if the gears of the reducer are visually intact, no one will risk putting them on a new helicopter. Rather write off and cut into parts.

      Usually, after such "applications on the ground," the technique stomps into the junk.

    The main thing is that the pilots are alive, the rest is secondary. They will be repaired well, there will be no study of the damage, they will see what can be improved.

    The Mi-35M is a modified version of the Mi-24 helicopter, adapted to any weather conditions, using, for example, the propulsion system and many onboard systems of the Mi-28N helicopter. This includes a drive with a new main rotor and tail rotor in the "X" configuration, borrowed from the Mi-28. The onboard equipment includes: the cockpit is adapted for the use of night vision goggles, a new optical-electronic targeting and navigation system GLONASS / GPS.

    Interestingly, in May 2020, a Russian Mi-35M attack helicopter crashed on the Crimean peninsula annexed by Russia near the town of Yankoy. The car was in a regular training flight. The Russian side described this event as a “hard landing”, but a more appropriate term would be “it crashed while attempting an emergency landing”. As a result of this incident, one crew member was killed and two are in serious condition. You have a problem with these helicopters !!

    And what does "Russian" have to do with it? It is "Russian", the title must be read. Russian and Russian are not exactly the same thing. We have the Russian Federation.
