Armed Forces of Ukraine do not abandon attempts to evacuate Azov commanders from Mariupol: helicopters shot down


Currently, the most active hostilities are taking place in Mariupol, where the remnants of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the national battalion "Azov" (banned in the Russian Federation) continue to hold part of the city. However, the situation is hopeless for them - the forces of the NM DPR, with the support of the RF Armed Forces, continue to methodically squeeze the enemy out of residential buildings, forcing them to gather at city enterprises. The most famous Nazi base in Mariupol remains the Azovstal plant.


According to the DPR, the leadership of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is interested in the evacuation of senior officers of Azov, for which Mi-8 transport helicopters were sent to Mariupol. According to the statement of the official representative of the people's militia of the DPR, Eduard Basurin, on March 31, two such helicopters were shot down, one of which fell near the village of Rubizhnoye. The location of the second car and the fate of the crew is unknown.

The words of the colleague were confirmed by the official representative of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, Major General Igor Konashenkov, who, during the daily briefing on 28.03.2022/8/XNUMX, also announced an attempt to break into Mariupol by the Mi-XNUMX helicopter of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, sent to evacuate the commanders of the nationalist battalion. The car was shot down over the Sea of ​​Azov by Russian air defense forces.

The final stage of the battle for Mariupol has begun, at a recent briefing, Basurin said that all the military personnel of the National Battalion and the Armed Forces of Ukraine who are in the city will no longer be able to go out through the humanitarian corridors, since they rejected all offers to surrender. Captured soldiers and officers will be guaranteed life, but not freedom.

    It remains for them to assign the rank of field marshals in the hope that they will shoot themselves winked

    The flyers are apparently given "Heroes of Ukraine" even before departure, like the Japanese in WWII. One-way flight... And it is unfortunately known. There is very little chance of survival. Give them credit (pilots), desperate guys.

      I think there, most likely, for refusing to be shot, but as a bun, a promise of whatever you want

    It would be necessary to shoot them down on the way back, along with the bodies being taken out. To be sure!

      until today they shot down on approach to Mariupol, today both cars were shot down already on their return. Apparently, the air defense forces began to understand the essence of the topic a little. Two cars - this is about thirty people without crews. The two survivors are taken to the hospital. They are bad but there is hope .. Judging by the photo video , some of the passengers were injured .

    Rather not desperate, but simply frostbitten ...

      This is the same. No one can cancel the basic instinct. People who agree to this need to be "processed" very well.

    Where do they get helicopters and planes from there? Hiding somewhere underground?

    I.e. All those who "instigated their gangsters to "to the last" themselves give a tear and, apparently, not empty-handed. Well, what can I say? "Sixes die first."

    Mariupol está a punto de caer y junto a Kherson y las conquistas del Dombass darán impulso a la guerra a favor de Rusia.

    Mariupol is about to fall, and together with Kherson and the conquests of Dombass, will give impetus to the war in favor of Russia.

    No freedom for them. Form construction teams from them. Let them restore Mariupol under the guidance of experienced builders.

    It seems that 2 out of 4 Mi-8s were still able to leave Mariupol
