Russian Ka-27 Helicopter Taken Down in Occupied Crimea

A Russian Ka-27 multifunctional helicopter was successfully neutralized in the temporarily occupied territory of Crimea, marking a significant operational achievement

Dmytro Pletenchuk, the spokesperson for the Naval Forces of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, confirmed the incident. "A Russian Ka-27 in Crimea has been taken out. It was searching for something and indeed found it," Pletenchuk remarked with a note of irony, though he withheld specific details about how the operation was conducted.

Reports from the Telegram channel Krymsky Veter indicated that on April 10, around 08:30 in Sevastopol, residents heard a noise resembling a rocket launch. The channel speculated that this sound might have been related to the "final flight" of the Ka-27 helicopter.

This event adds to the significant losses already sustained by the Russian forces in Ukraine, which have surpassed 450,000 military personnel.
