Russian Helicopter Fished Out From Kyiv Reservoir

Ukrainian border guards had a monster catch when out ‘fishing’ in a Kyiv reservoir a Russian Mi-35M helicopter. The aircraft was pulled from the water using a naval boat to tow the helicopter from the reservoir bed before lifting it out with buoys. It’s a pricey loss for Russia as the helicopter’s list price is $36 million and is intended for the destruction of armoured vehicles, fire support of ground forces, landing and evacuations, as well as the transportation of goods. Sadly for this helicopter it ended up as the catch of the day.
