Unfortunately, we are forced to state that the video of the destruction of the Mi-8AMTSh from Zmeiny Island is not the result of the work of the RF Armed Forces. This is a Russian helicopter destroyed by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the Telegram channel clarifies. Rybar.

The board was assigned to the 487 separate helicopter regiment. The deputy commander of the regiment for military-political work was also killed. Eternal memory to the fallen.

The island is now in the gray zone.

UPD: For especially zealous subscribers and advisers: if we are mistaken in something or receive incorrect information, we do not hesitate to admit it. And if we deny real combat losses, we will simply devalue the combat work of the RF Armed Forces and the memory of the fallen.

Ukrainian Telegram channel woman with scythe writes:

On the sidelines, there are more and more rumors that the General Staff and the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine do not know where a huge part of the early foreign military assistance is located.

They want to write it off for losses in battles with the Russians. As our source in the General Staff said, the task of conducting an inventory and reporting on the use of foreign military assistance came from the Office of the President. According to our interlocutor, the Pentagon and the State Department demanded this. The reconciliation with the participation of the SBU was completed the other day. It turns out that now there is no information about about 70% of military assistance. First of all, we are talking not only about various grenade launchers, MANPADS and small arms, but also about communication systems, electronic warfare, and even batches of protective equipment and equipment. Finding where it all went, according to our source, is not possible. So far, it is planned to write off all this property for losses in the war.

In the Izyum direction, enemy infantry and armored vehicles are trying to attack with small forces, but these attacks are not aimed at regaining control over the lost settlements, but solely for the sake of stopping our offensive. The data of objective control show powerful fortified areas that the Armed Forces of Ukraine continue to build on the path of advancement of our troops.

Northwest of Izyum, Ukrainian troops built a pontoon crossing over the Seversky Donets, now it has been destroyed by a missile strike.

In the Kharkiv direction, fighting is taking place in the area of ​​​​the village of Liptsy and Kazachya Lopan, plus the Armed Forces of Ukraine are actively shelling the border Belgorod villages. I can’t say about the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on all fronts, in Izyum Ukraine is losing a lot of soldiers. The battle for forests and villages in front of the Slavic fortified area does not subside day or night.
