According to a military expert, in the last three days, Vladimir Putin has lost three of his Ka-52 Alligator attack helicopters.


According to former US Navy SEAL turned war correspondent, Chuck Pfarrer, Russian President Vladimir Putin has suffered the humiliating loss of three Ka-52 Alligator attack helicopters being shot down over Ukraine in as many days. These choppers are regarded as the deadliest ever made by Russia.

Posting on his official Twitter account, the ex-special forces man wrote: “HAT TRICK: On 15 AUG, Ukrainian air defence brought down a Russian Ka-52 attack helicopter. It is the third Russian Ka-52 to be shot down in three days. UKR anti-air defences also downed two Ka-52s over the weekend”.

The military expert claimed that one chopper was shot down on Monday, August 15. Two more were destroyed over the weekend by Ukrainian air defence systems said Pfarrer.

Yury Ihnat, a spokesperson for Ukraine’s Air Force Command, claimed earlier this month that out of every eight missiles launched in Russian military strikes, Ukraine has intercepted seven.

He was referring to a blitz that Russia attempted on the evening of August 2. Cities had allegedly been targeted that night in western, southern, and central regions. 

Serhii Borzov, the governor of Vinnytsia Oblast claimed that two Russian missiles had been shot down over his city on August 1. He said that the Ukrainian anti-aircraft systems in the city were proving to be very effective, although he stopped short of naming the areas supposedly being targeted.
