DTN News - UKRAINE CRISIS: Separatists Shoot Down Ukrainian Helicopter
(NSI News Source Info) TORONTO, Canada - May 29, 2014: Ukrainian army helicopter before being shot down (29 May)
The helicopter had just taken off after transporting soldiers to a Ukrainian base.
The helicopter arrived at Karachun [near Sloviansk], to unload and pick up a group of people who were finishing their tour and going on leave. They were shot down after take-off. I had talked to the pilot and also to Gen Kulchytskiy. The pilots were very nice guys - polite, correct, friendly.
Gen Kulchytskiy was very capable and very accessible. A good commander who would fly to the checkpoints where his soldiers were. He would personally bring them food and water. He kept an eye on everything.
