Latvia has delivered Mi-17 and Mi-2 helicopters to the Ukrainian army
The Ministry of Defense of Latvia informs that the Ukrainian Air Force has received four helicopters donated by Latvia, which will soon be fully included in the aviation fleet of the Ukrainian army.
“Half a year ago, the anti-aircraft defense system “Stinger” donated by Latvia helped the Ukrainian army to delay the Russian invasion. Now, as Ukrainian soldiers counterattack in many places, our donated helicopters will help carry out military operations and save lives. Western countries’ support for Ukraine must not end until it frees its entire territory from the Russian occupation forces,” emphasizes Defense Minister of Latvia Artis Pabriks.
Two Mi-17 and two Mi-2 helicopters were delivered to the Air Force of Ukraine in partially disassembled form.
