In Ukraine, they explained why the Russian Mi-8, which allegedly violated the border, was not shot down

In March of this year, 50 meters deep into Ukrainian territory allegedly flew Russian helicopter Mi-8. The Russian rotorcraft was spotted in the sky over the Sumy region at an altitude of about 100 meters, after which the Ukrainian border service demanded an explanation from the relevant Russian structures due to the alleged violation of the Russian-Ukrainian border.

In connection with such incidents, the head of the Ukrainian State Border Service, Serhiy Daineko, explained why the Mi-8 was not shot down.

According to Daineko, Ukrainian servicemen need portable anti-aircraft missile systems to destroy such objects. However, not all border posts of Ukraine have such systems.

In addition, some sections of the border between Ukraine and Russia are not demarcated, therefore, when trying to identify violations and the use of weapons, the influence of the human factor is not excluded. It is quite possible that this factor played a role in the case of the Mi-8, which was patrolling its section of the border - probably, the helicopter could accidentally cross the border lines, circling for one minute over the Ukrainian territory.

      Impunity breeds lawlessness. The Su-24M and Mi-24 of the Russian Air Force shot down by the Turks and Azerbaijanis are fueling the desire of Bandera's Ukraine to repeat their success.

        The Turks still regularly rake for the downed bomber. All those who appeared in the shooting of the pilots were sent to Allah. The embargo on "tomatoes" cost the Turks-putschists such a big sum, the Sultan himself thoroughly cleaned them up later. But broadcast about it in " the correct "media is bad tone. What happened to the turntable. The story is extremely muddy, but the fact that Aliyev was extremely frightened by the possible consequences is a fact. And they took place, judging by how agitated his opposition was."

    The unpunished "Turkish demarche" in Syria-2015 and at Nakhichevan-2020 quite "confuses the minds" of the Svidomo Maydauns (they, these anti-national ameroholuyev, are a wretched minority in Ukraine, but they are now in power and in arms!) ... (albeit militantly tryndet at every corner about their determination to "repeat Nagorno-Karabakh-2020 in Donbass," the Bandera supporters stopped).

    - Damn ... yes, what other helicopters are there ... - if there are no borders (as such) ... between Russia and Ukraine; then what to say about the borders of Novorossia with Ukraine ... -And the Ukrainian counterintelligence feels on the territory of Novorossia ... -like at home ... -But the Novorossiysk counterintelligence is unlikely to afford this in relation to the Ukrainian territory .. ...
    - All "experts" are waiting for some kind of war in Ukraine; shelling (shelling and so does not stop), bombing ... - but large-scale sabotage on the territory of Novorossiya ... - something no one "expects" and does not fear ... - Why are these single helicopters shot down; when you can "bang" (blow up) a whole hangar with these helicopters ... and storage depots for fuel and lubricants ... and so on ...
    - In this case, we are talking about the Russian Mi-8; but after all, Novorossiya has its own all kinds of equipment ... - so ...

    They are now afraid to fart once again, squealing does not count when two Russian armies are standing side by side.
