What the Russian military Mi-8 was doing in the airspace of Ukraine

The Border Guard Service of Ukraine is demanding an explanation from the Russian side in connection with the violation by a Russian helicopter of the state border in the sky over the Sumy region. The press service of the Ukrainian department said that on Tuesday, March 16, a helicopter from the Russian Federation flew into Ukrainian territory at a distance of about 50 meters.

In connection with the incident, the Ukrainian border service sent appropriate notifications to the FSB of Russia with a demand to explain the ownership of the helicopter and to explain the circumstances of the violation by the Russians of the state border with Ukraine.

Earlier, the incident was reported by the Ukrainian propagandist Andriy Tsaplienko, according to which a Russian Mi-14.05 flew into the Ukrainian airspace of Ukraine at 8 local time, flying at an altitude of about 100 meters and invading the airspace of Ukraine at 50 meters.

Apparently, the Ukrainian military captured a helicopter of the Russian Federal Security Service, which was monitoring the border area. It can be assumed that information about the activity of the Armed Forces of Ukraine fighters in the immediate vicinity of the Russian border was received at the desk of the duty officer, after which a rotorcraft was sent to the indicated area. After making sure that the Ukrainian military was not taking any illegal actions, the FSB helicopter flew back. It is clear that the violation of the border, if any, was unintentional.

In this context, it will not be superfluous to recall that during the hot phase of the confrontation in Donbas, several dozen artillery shells flew in from the territory of Ukraine, which damaged 6 houses of Russians in the Rostov region. And on July 13, 2014, a resident of our country was killed by Ukrainian ammunition in the city of Donetsk (Rostov region).

    And where is the dash-dotted line of the state border drawn with yellow paint on the blue Ukrainian sky? Or wires instead? But the Ukrainian border guard, well done, instantly determined that the helicopter flew exactly 50 meters. Not 51 or 49. Learn, Chukchi hunter. This is not to shoot a squirrel in the eye. fellow

      There was no fence on that site. How can pilots know where the border is. Sakuas, continue building the Canopy Rabbit fence.

    Next time they will overwhelm, like the Azerbaijanis, and Zelensky will apologize - he will say that he was confused with the Siberian Crane ...

    The border of Ukraine and the Russian Federation has not yet been demarcated. T.K. The Russian Federation is the legal successor of the USSR, it can fly through the territory of Ukraine wherever it wants.

      It would be nice to google and read what is spelled out in the documents on succession and what it is specifically expressed, and not write what comes to mind.

      maybe the pilot just didn't want to litter on Russian territory and threw out the bottle of urine from the Ukrainians. laughing

    Why didn't he work for the Nazis? in the same place, like on the Mi-8, blocks with C5-KO are suspended, let them discharge them.
