Ukraine’s military has received military helicopters as part of military assistance from Latvia, according to the country’s Defense Minister Artis Pabriks.
“The Ukrainian Air Force has just received 4 helicopters donated by Latvia,” Pabriks said.
Defense Minister also noted that helicopters are soon to be included in the aviation fleet of the Ukrainian Army.
According to a press release from the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Latvia, two Mi-17 and two Mi-2 helicopters were delivered to the Air Force of Ukraine in partially disassembled form. Before delivery, the helicopters were painted, and one Mi-17 was overhauled.
“The Stingers we sent half a year ago helped delay the Russian invasion. Now, as Ukrainian soldiers start the counterattacks in many places, our donated helicopters will help military operations and save lives,” Minister added.
