Russian Spetsnaz Shoot Down Own Helicopter In Vuhledar!?!?

Russian forces released footage they claim shows naval special forces launching a double volley of man portable air missiles at a supposed Ukrainian helicopter... There's just on problem: The only helicopter that has reportedly gone down in the area is a Russian Ka-52 Alligator attack chopper, which crashed for "unknown reasons." It's reasonable to assume that this hype video of Russian might is actually just another demonstration of military incompetence.


Although the Russian video producer attempted to blur the landscape for OPSEC purposes, the building they are firing from was easily identified as a church in the Mykolske neighborhood of Vuhledar.
