On a Ukraine highway, a video of an assault helicopter narrowly avoiding vehicles is becoming popular on social media. The Ukrainian Ministry of Defense published the footage on Twitter.
The post’s caption, which said “Welcome to Ukraine,” had more than 1.2 million views in a matter of hours.
A helicopter was seen in the footage flying dangerously close to a road. The dramatic scene was captured by a camera inside a car moving the other way.
Within a few hours, the video had more than 42,000 likes. Internet fans applauded the pilot for his excellent talents in the comment section.
One user commented, “The pilot definitely is a really qualified professional!”.
Another person chimed in, “That’s certainly years of training respect for the fighter pilot.”
Everyone has a job to do, a third person said, adding that it’s not your typical commute to work. A fourth person said, “This is one of the techniques used to keep the enemy from spotting the plane. following the path of public highways while flying at a relatively low height and at a speed comparable to that of cars that’s awesome.”
Helicopters flying low are frequent in the continuing conflict between Russia and Ukraine. In reality, it is a common tactic during times of conflict as pilots on both sides try to avoid being picked up by the enemy’s radar. Additionally, by using this technique, you can escape being hit by surface-to-air missiles.
Russia has intensified its onslaught on Ukraine’s vital infrastructure in recent weeks. Even worse, earlier this week, Ukrainians experienced their first significant nationwide blackouts as government attempted to ration electricity so that energy companies could repair power plants that had been damaged by Russian airstrikes.
According to President Volodymyr Zelensky, 30% of Ukraine’s power plants have suffered damage as a result of Russian airstrikes in just over a week.
