CHERNIHIV, UKRAINE: New footage was released earlier this week; the footage showed Russian soldiers crying out for mercy. These pictures and videos show the men after they were held by soldiers and civilians in a field. Some are on their knees with their hands behind their heads, while others are bleeding heavily from their head wounds. It’s been reported that the pilot was on the ground when his plane was shot down. In the video, he’s wearing an orange jumpsuit and has his hands behind his head as he kneels on the ground. It was shot down over the Ukrainian city of Chernihiv on Saturday.
Besides this, footage has also surfaced of the Russian pilot who crashed in a field; and was taken to the hospital with a head wound. It shows two men, thought to be Russian pilots with blood coming from their faces as they are being questioned in the back of a van. The footage was taken on a day when Russian air forces lost as many as eight planes including multi-role, strike, and close air support planes and a drone, as well.
The Russian helicopter was brought down by soldiers in Ukraine. In the end, the warhead explodes, leaving behind a trail of white smoke behind it. The Ukrainian army took it down; before they could equally reciprocate through their fire-power.
Immediately, the helicopter goes up in flames; sending bright orange flames shooting out of its engine. This shows that Russia didn’t get air superiority. As it turns out, ten days later, the Russian President’s much-talked-about air force is still being caught in ambushes; by highly mobile Ukrainian air defense units that have the most up-to-date shoulder-fired rocket launchers.
The 10 soldiers spoke at a press conference at Interfax-Ukraine yesterday . The two men were two of the 10 soldiers who spoke. They had agreed to give up; and each said that they had been treated well and had been able to get in touch with their families.
