Russian Ka-52 withstood enemy shelling and saved the crew near Kiev

The Russian military department has published video footage of the operation to ensure the landing of troops from Russian helicopters, during which one of the covering rotorcraft was shot down. However, thanks to the courage of the pilots, the combat mission was successfully completed.

The video is being filmed from a Ka-52 flying over the vicinity of one of the airfields near Kyiv and firing at targets of the Ukrainian army with unguided rockets and an aircraft cannon.

However, the helicopter was soon shot down, which the Ka-52 commander reported on the radio, noting that the board was controllable. The pilot had to perform an emergency landing on a nearby field. The helicopter gearbox was badly damaged. Later, the Ministry of Defense disclosed information that the Ka-52, attacked by MANPADS fire, covered a group of Mi-8 helicopters and ensured their tactical landing. In total, the Ka-52 was fired upon by cannon anti-aircraft systems and man-portable anti-aircraft missile systems 18 times.

After landing, the crew of the Ka-52 took up defense near the rotorcraft, holding out until the arrival of the second group of helicopters. The pilots were successfully evacuated.

    But the Ukrainians then lied that they captured one of the pilots, and the second died. It’s very good that the guys are alive. Working in such conditions of opposition is something. Yes, and our helicopter technology is still reliable.

    well done flyers
    I'm wondering what's next for the car?
    the crew was saved, but what about the helicopter, will it go to the APU (parts, instruments) or will it be destroyed by ours, by artillery or from the air?

    And this is from Kyiv.

    If you are faced with a shortage of water due to the war, and you have to take it from wells and pump rooms, you need to carefully monitor its purity. In addition to the filter, there are other ways to purify water at home.

    Lafhack 1.

    Buy tablets based on chlorine and iodine in the store. Dip the tablet in water, and after half an hour you can drink. This is a fast and proven method to disinfect water.

    Life hack 2.

    Fill a container with water, close it and put it in the freezer for a day. Liquid with nitrates, iron and other harmful substances will collect in the center and at the bottom of the container. Melt and wash the bottom and center with hot water, leaving only the ice. To do this, lay the container on its side and make a through hole in its center.

    It is important that the liquid at the bottom melts gradually, so you need to turn the container over. Transfer the remaining clean ice to another container and wait until it melts.

    Life hack 3.

    Make a homemade filter from improvised means. To do this, place a large watering can in a jug. After that, make the filter in layers: the first layer is gauze, the second is cotton wool, the third is also gauze.

    Spread activated charcoal tablets over the entire surface of the filter. This will require five packs. Cover the top of the tablet with two more layers of gauze.

    You can also add river sand fried in a pan. On the sand, you also need to put another layer of gauze. There should be space in the watering can where dirty water can be poured.
