Another report of the Armed Forces of Ukraine about the downed Russian Ka-52 turned out to be fake. Ukrainian propaganda confirms the “new success of the army” with images from 2013.
Ukrainian nationalists are spreading photos of the allegedly downed Russian Ka-52 helicopter in the Kharkiv region on social networks. Experts easily identified in the published footage a combat vehicle that crashed in 2013 in the Vykhino-Zhulebino area in the southeast of Moscow.
Eight years ago, an experimental Ka-52 helicopter crashed on the territory of the Kamov flight test complex during a flight under the factory test program. Both pilots survived, although they required hospitalization.
Allied forces as part of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation and the militia of the LDNR continue to successfully carry out the tasks of the special operation. This is why Ukrainian propaganda has to use archival photographs and videos to provide citizens of the country with a report on at least some victories.
