Ukrainians were preparing to shoot down a Russian helicopter that "violated the airspace"


According to Ukrainian media reports, on Tuesday, March 16, at about 14.05 local time, a Russian Mi-8 helicopter violated the Russian-Ukrainian border, invading 50 meters into the territory of Ukraine near the village of Krasnopolye, Sumy region, and then returning back to Russia.


Ukrainian border guards did not react to the Russian "provocation", but military units on this section of the border were put on alert.

The use of air defense was not ruled out in the event of further advancement of the Russian military aviation deep into Ukraine. However, the Russians quickly returned to their territory.

- notes the Dialogue.UA edition, speaking of the readiness to shoot down the Russian rotorcraft by the Ukrainians.

According to the Ukrainian side, such steps by Russia coincide with the aggravation of the military situation on the contact line in Donbass, and this "trick" of Russian pilots could become an attempt to find a reason for the Kremlin's invasion of Ukraine - on the same day, the Russian "hybrid army" announced a military alarm.

Meanwhile, the command of the air forces of Ukraine cannot confirm the fact of violation of the Ukrainian airspace by a Russian helicopter, since its penetration deep into Ukraine was so small that it is practically impossible to record it with high accuracy.

    An old tactic, preparing an information background for the downing of our helicopter. They say it was not the first time that the state was violated. border. But what went through the United States may not go through Ukraine.

    If it is over your territory, then shoot down, the flag is in your hands, you have every right, but if you shoot it over Russian territory, then you immediately need to run to "friendly" Poland with all the green-powder-Gordons, etc.-our the troops will again go to liberate Ukraine from the Galician invaders until the 1939 borders.

      Azerbaijan shot down a helicopter over the territory of Armenia. Has anyone been punished?

      Why are you persecuting? Since when do all the helicopters that for some reason crossed the border need to be shot down? These are the same people who rule Ukraine!

    If there is something and not everything is sold out, so what's the problem?
    There are many goals for the Banking. We'll pick some one.

    Anti-polonism (also: polonophobia) is a term that collectively defines all prejudice, discrimination, disgust and hostility towards Poles.

      if it was sarcasm, or do you seriously consider the relationship of Polish politicians with Ukrainian ones as friendship? or, businessmen with a hired labor force, one that is outside the right field? So iust a business, mine comrade, and no anti-polonism

    Well, let them prepare whatever background they want. Their Wishlist can end in a completely different "kolinkorn" with completely different boundaries. And now the border guards are standing on the border between Novorossia and the Galicia or Lviv region.

    Don't be happy, dill. Who needs you to have our helicopter, what it tested you in, take you in fright, provoke and so on. 50 m is not 50 km. We already know everything about your air defense, without leaving the places of our deployment. Twitch, we will tear off the jerk and you will not find those who tried to twitch.

        after all, maybe - the border guard personally, being 50 meters from the border and looking straight up, but this is useless, like some mathematical theories.

    Here are the bullshit!
    But who needs to go to them, there would be some sense in this, otherwise it just so that there was a topic for conversation. Moreover, since it would have been a reality, then the staff members were connected ..., everything there is now like in an X-ray room ...
