Ukrainian troops attacking the protester-held city of Slovyansk suffered another blow today when rebel fighters shot down a military helicopter, killing 12 troops including one of their top generals.
Gen. Volodymyr Kulchitsky was in charge of combat training for the Ukrainian National Guard, and the helicopter was on the outskirts of Slovyansk when it was hit by a missile, which Ukrainian officials claim is “Russian” in origin. Since virtually all the war materiel in the country on both sides is originally from the Soviet Union, this is likely the case.
Early reports put the toll at 14, though the National Guard later revised it down to 12, claiming there was also at least one survivor who was wounded in the incident.
The National Guard claimed to have retaliated against the rebels responsible and “annihilated” them, though there were no immediate reports of any casualties around Slovyansk so this could not be confirmed.
Slovyansk and the neighboring city of Kramatorsk, in the far north of Donetsk Oblast, have been major targets of the military’s invasion of the region, which aims at restoring control of the oblasts to the central government. Rebels have claimed the founding of a “People’s Republic of Donetsk” and another in Luhansk that are operating as more or less independent entities.

Gen. Volodymyr Kulchitsky was a particulary nasty and well known Nazi of the Lvov Nazi strong hold-breed. Depicted all over the internet with such symbols, google the guy. They where all fried by an anti aircraft gun. It´s a horrible way to go for sure but it was even worse for the Odessa protestors chased into a building exposed to gas and burned and shot to death by his fellow "Stormtruppen".
Anyways, that, another chopper and a number of destroyed ukie vehicles and several cases of mutiny and defections, just yesterday, among what´s left of the Ukie army and no losses at all for the defenders, which "Commandante" Igor Strelkov of the Novorossiyan forces gladly declared, was yesterdays biggest achievment. A lot of training seems to have payed off. The Ukie army wont be no problem as the aforementioned General has said, their moral is at an all time low and they and their relatives refuse to send them to the front or they simply goes back or defect´s home once they find out what they are supposed to do (terrorize and kill fellow citizens). The problem is the Nazi death squads, besides western merc´s the only lojal force the junta has at the moment, killing both defectors and just anyone speaking Russian south of the Dniepr. If the Nazi regime and the "elected" president of rump-Banderastan wishes to go on with the onslaught and are pressed by the US to do so, they have to use these people they themselves hast lost all control over and everything will turn into a bloodbath.
Good for the free world of nazi, one less nazi means one more free human being.
Sinc when do "honest citizens" making a lawful protest have the capacity to shoot down a helicopter?
Answer: when they possess anti-aircraft missiles.
Good. Like dead Mossad, any dead Naz! is a good one
