According to Synehubov: "In the morning a Russian helicopter carried out an attack on its own troops, killing a large number of military personnel and destroying equipment belonging to the occupation forces in Malaysia Rohan. These were the occupiers who had been relentlessly shelling the city of Kharkiv with artillery weapons and multiple rocket launchers.

We hope that this is not the last instance of ‘self-destruction’ by the Russian occupiers."
