Incredible video shows the moment a Russian helicopter is blown out of the sky by Ukrainian troops as the war rages on

This is the incredible moment when a Russian helicopter appears to be shot out of the sky by Ukrainian forces.

Ukraine’s Defense Ministry shared the footage while continuing to put up a staunch resistance to the invaders.

The footage shows a suspected Russian Mi-24 Hind helicopter flying over the countryside.

And then a guided missile – possibly a Stinger – comes flying toward the helicopter from the right side of the frame.

Before countermeasures can be fired, the missile hits the helicopter and turns it into a ball of flames.

It hurtles through the air before exploding as it crashes into a field – with a city visible in the background of the footage.

The video is said to have been taken near Kyiv.

Ukraine has previously boasted of shooting down more than 30 helicopters and 30 fighter jets.

Russia has failed to secure air superiority over the former Soviet state – something that significantly impedes Putin’s invasion.

“This is how the Russian occupiers die. This time in a helicopter,” Ukraine’s Defense Ministry tweeted.

“Honour to Ukraine and its defenders! Together to victory!”

And elsewhere in Ukraine, a Russian fighter jet was also filmed being shot down.

The fighter jet was shot down over Chernihiv, with video showing locals cheering.

Further footage showed the pilot was captured with a shirt covered in blood and a bandage around his head.


It comes as:


It comes after a week of vicious bloodshed that saw thousands of civilians slaughtered at the hands Putin’s powers.

And this morning a brief ceasefire was declared in the strategic port of Mariupol to the south-east and in the eastern city of Volnovakha.

Russian forces promised to let civilians leave – but were accused just over an hour later of breaching the agreement.

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy this morning confirmed the new humanitarian corridors – but urged those who could to “keep fighting”.

And in a bitter speech on Friday night, he again called for a no-fly zone and told NATO that “all the people who die that day.”

Putin’s invasion has drawn condemnations and heavy sanctions from Western nations, balancing the Kremlin’s punishment with fears of a dangerous escalation.

Moscow has captured two key cities, Berdyansk and Kherson on Ukraine’s southern Black Sea coast, in its 10-day invasion.

Peace talks are expected to resume today – but Ukraine remains defiant as civilians prepare to fight back amid Russia’s grueling advance.

Mariupol was one of the most brutalized wartime cities as the Russians blocked it, cutting off food, water, heating and transport in the depths of the water.

It has been compared to the Nazi blockade of Leningrad in World War II.

And according to civilians fleeing Volnovakha — the other city was granted a brief moment of peace in the truce — the city was almost completely destroyed.

The nefarious dictator Putin had denied bombing Ukrainian civilians despite overwhelming evidence showing the horrors of his invasion.

Children have been killed in its indiscriminate bombing, which is said to have used weapons such as cluster munitions and vacuum bombs.

In a phone call with Chancellor Olaf Scholz, the Russian tyrant insisted that the information about the bombing was falsified.

The Kremlin later released a statement saying, “The alleged ongoing airstrikes on Kyiv and other major cities are gross propaganda fabrications.”

Delusional Putin said he was open to talks with Ukraine, but only on condition that “all Russian demands are met”.

Vlad’s bizarre denial comes as he claims war he unleashed was a “success”although the Russian army suffered heavy casualties.

The reported temporary ceasefire in Ukraine is welcome, but it is only a “small step,” said UK Treasury Secretary John Glen.

And this comes as a US official said Russia is preparing to send 1,000 additional mercenaries to Ukraine in the near future.

Meanwhile, Russia yesterday took control of Europe’s largest power plant in Zaporizhia – after a fight that set the plant on fire.

Putin has been condemned internationally for his actions that could have triggered the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl.

Russia has found that its invasion was mortified by logistical problems – with reports of tanks running out of fuel and soldiers running out of supplies.

Putin is said to have thought he could overrun Ukraine in just 48 hours – and his troops thought they would be greeted as heroes.

But instead they are bogged down against a staunch resistance.

Putin is also becoming increasingly isolated in the world as Russia feels the crushing weight of Western sanctions.

However, Moscow seems increasingly frustrated – and there are fears that Putin may resort to increasingly brutal tactics as the war progresses.

It is believed that Kyiv remains the main target of the Russians.

And a huge convoy of armored vehicles lurks nearby, apparently preparing for a protracted siege.

The so-called “Convoy of Death” is puzzling, however, as it hasn’t made any significant progress in days.

Russian forces are believed to be becoming increasingly demoralized with captured troops seen weep for their mothers.

Despite its defiance, Ukraine faces a humanitarian crisis with more than a million refugees fleeing the devastating war.

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy – who has remained in a bunker in Ukraine to dodge assassination attempts – has called for a face-to-face meeting with Putin to try to stop the demolitions.
