On October 30, another sabotage attack hit a military facility in the Russian Federation. Three explosions thundered on a airfield helipad in the Pskov region. The attack took place at the Veretye military airfield 600 km from the Ukrainian border.
Ukrainian saboteurs blew up Russian helicopters on the helipad located near the Russian-Latvian border in the Ostrovsky district. As a result of the attack, two Ka-52 helicopters were damaged. The damaged Ka-52s were out of duty. They were under repair at the airfield.
The Ka-52 Alligator reconnaissance and attack helicopter is one of the most advanced combat vehicles in its class. It is able to maneuver quickly in a limited space to occupy a favorable attacking position, perform complex aerobatics and conduct aerial combat at low altitudes. The helicopters have already proven their effectiveness on the battlefields in Syria and Ukraine.
Next day, another explosive device was discovered on the airfield. The device was found by security officers during an inspection of the scene on the afternoon of October 31. A suspicious object was attached to the fuselage of the Mi-28 helicopter. The explosive power was reportedly about 400 g in TNT equivalent.
Shortly after the incident, Ukraine’s military intelligence issued a statement claiming responsibility for the attack.
The video reportedly showing the Ukrainian saboteurs setting the explosive under the Ka-52 helicopters was shared by the media. Authenticity of the video raised suspicions. Anyway, the security measures on the Russian military facilities are obviously not enough to stop the ongoing sabotage attacks on the Russian territory coordinated by the Kiev regime.
