Czechia sends final two Mi-24 attack helicopters to Ukraine

The Czech government has dispatched its last two Mi-24 attack helicopters to support the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Denikn reported.

These helicopters, bearing the tail numbers 3365 and 3366, are the final units from Prague’s inventory, totaling eight Mi-24s provided to Ukraine.

This delivery marks the third tranche of Mi-24 helicopters, with the first batch of four sent in July 2022. The second tranche was delivered in July 2023, though the exact number of helicopters was not disclosed. The third and final tranche, consisting of two helicopters, was completed in March 2024.

Currently, the Czech Republic leads an initiative aimed at purchasing 800,000 155mm shells for Ukraine outside the EU with the help of allies. The initiative comes as a response to the EU’s failure to meet its pledge of providing Ukraine with 1 million rounds of artillery by this month while Russia continues to produce more ammunition and receive support from North Korea.
