Ihnat said that Russian aircraft and helicopters "have found some trouble".

He clarified that these vehicles were on their way to carry out a combat mission at the front.

Background: On 13 May, different information on the downing of a helicopter, two helicopters, or an aircraft emerged simultaneously.

Initially, Russian propagandists said that the helicopter crashed because of an engine fire, keeping silent about its destruction and an explosion before the fire.

Then they acknowledged the shooting down of two helicopters and one aircraft, customarily blaming it on "Ukrainian saboteurs".
