MOMENT ferocious Russian attack helicopters launch missiles, 'destroying a Ukrainian stronghold'.
The footage shows the attack helicopters, sporting white 'V' symbols on their fuselages, being prepared for combat before they take off and head towards their targets. The images then appear to show them opening fire on Ukrainian targets.
Salvos of rockets can be seen being fired from some of the helicopters before the footage shows the aircraft landing, presumably back at their base.
It is unclear where exactly the attacks took place, but the Russian Ministry of Defence (MoD) said in a short statement on the evening of Sunday, 12th June: "Ka-52 attack helicopter crews engaged in combat operations to destroy AFU [Armed Forces of Ukraine] strongholds.
"During the flights, the army aviation pilots carried out missile launches against the identified strongholds of AFU units.
"The air strikes were carried out from a range of over 5 kilometres".
