Pilots of the Ukrainian Armed Forces carried out training flights with live fire on the border with Crimea for several days.
The General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces reported to Facebook that the crews of two Mi-8 and Mi -14PCh flew from their home base to a training ground in the Kherson region, where they managed to hit several targets.
Thus, the Mi-14PCh developed a radar search element for a ship and tactical bombardment, and the Mi-8 – practical launches of unguided missiles and bombardments on specified targets.
Earlier Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba compared Kiev's attempts to 'return Crimea' with the battle for Ukraine. According to the diplomat, if the country refuses to do so, it will lose its sovereignty.
