Russian attack helicopters blast Ukrainian position with flurry of rockets.

MOMENT Russian attack helicopters blast Ukrainian position with flurry of rockets.

The video shows at least one Ka-52 attack helicopter taking off from a base at an unspecified location and opening fire on unseen positions on the ground.

The footage then cuts to what appears to be an infrared targeting system and shows explosions on the ground before the helicopter, sporting a white 'V' on its side, lands as the footage ends.

It is unclear where exactly in Ukraine the images were filmed, but they were obtained from the the Russian Ministry of Defence (MoD), who said that they show "Ka-52 helicopters [sent] to destroy strongholds of the Armed Forces of Ukraine".

Russia invaded Ukraine on 24th February in what the Kremlin is calling a "special military operation". Today marks the 120th day of the invasion.
