This was the third Ka-52 of rashists, downed by the Ukrainian defense forces in the past two days,” the Air Force Command said in a post on its official page on Facebook.

The post was accompanied with a video showing an already damaged Ka-52 smoking, indicating engine damage.

Later, a video appeared showing the moment the helicopter was hit. Apparently, this helicopter was hit by MANPADS.

It is noted that this helicopter was shot down in Donetsk region.

Previous day Joint Forces Task Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported the destruction of two more Ka-52 helicopters by the Khortytsia strategic military group.

We will remind that the Ka-52 is actually a rather scarce machine in the russian federation, according to Military Balance for 2021, we are talking about 127 Ka-52 helicopters in the russian armed forces. At the same time, according to the General Staff of the Armed Forces, the enemy has already lost 195 helicopters of all types.
