Russia’s use of attack helicopters give it temporary advantage in southern Ukraine – British intelligence

Russia’s use of attack helicopters give it temporary advantage in southern Ukraine – British intelligence
20 extra Russian attack helicopters situated in occupied Berdiansk deliver strikes against Ukrainian assault groups, the British Ministry of Defense says in its daily update.

“Since the start of Ukrainian counter-offensive operations in southern Ukraine, Russia has re-enforced its attack helicopter force in the region.

Imagery shows that over 20 extra Russian helicopters deployed to Berdiansk Airport, approximately 100km behind the front line.

In the constant contest between aviation measures and counter-measures, it is likely that Russia has gained a temporary advantage in southern Ukraine, especially with attack helicopters employing longer-range missiles against ground targets.”

Notably, in our latest frontline report, it was specifically Russia’s use of attack helicopters that prevented Ukrainians from securing a village near Orikhiv.
