RUSSIAN Ka-52 Alligator attack helicopters fire at Ukrainian ground targets in sign of strength - hours after Ukrainian forces shot one from the sky.
Ukraine released images showing its paratroopers knocking one clean out of the sky with a British-made rocket launcher.
The footage allegedly shows two Russian attack helicopters taking off from a base at an undisclosed location before opening fire on unspecified targets. After unleashing their arsenal of missiles and heavy armament, one of the attack helicopters can be seen returning to base.
It is currently unclear if the second attack helicopter was the one that was shot down by Ukrainian paratroopers using a British-made Starstreak missile system.
