Footage of Ukrainian pilots braving “suicidal” missions to deliver aid to besieged Mariupol has been shared online.

In one video, a Mi-8 helicopter can be seen landing in the ruins of the Azovstal steel plant for resupply and reinforcement missions so dangerous that Volodymyr Zelensky described as close to suicidal.
