One Russian pilot vanished with his important cargo, only to be found in Ukraine with reports suggesting this was the result of a remarkable “special operation” from the Ukrainians that lured a Russian pilot to “switch sides.” The Russian’s story is very different, however. Here’s what we know.
A Shocking Revelation Emerges
Startling news unfolded as Ukrainian intelligence sources disclosed the remarkable tale of a vanished Russian pilot and his Mi-8 helicopter, now found in Ukraine.
A Meticulous Operation Unveiled
A Ukrainian Defense Ministry representative, Andriy Yusov, unveiled the intricate six-month special operation behind the Russian chopper’s unexpected landing on Ukrainian soil.
The Pilot’s Calculated Move
Reports highlighted the pilot’s story, revealing that he was enticed into Ukraine as part of the operation. Notably, the pilot’s family was safely relocated beforehand.
Special Cargo Revealed
Adding a twist to the tale, the Ukrainian intelligence operation resulted in Ukraine taking hold of the cargo carried by the chopper which turned out to be a treasure trove of crucial spare parts for Russian fighter jets.
The Dreaded Fate of the Crew
While some sources suggest that the crew perished during the operation, others hinted at the possibility of their surrender.
Moscow’s Unspoken Response
The Russian capital remains silent in the face of these developments, even as Kremlin-linked Telegram channels tacitly acknowledge the missing chopper that they said disappeared, “a couple weeks ago.”
Unraveling the Mystery
Details emerged from sources on Telegram that recounted a scenario where the crew died in Ukraine, “Having understood where they landed, they tried to take off, but they were gunned down in the helicopter on the ground,” the channel claimed.
A Shadow of Uncertainty Over the Pilot
Concerns loom over the pilot’s well-being, and there are whispers of intense pressure from the Ukrainian military and the uncertainty of his current situation, with the channel claiming that he is being, “brutally worked over” by the Ukrainian military.
A Warning Statement From the Kremlin
Pro-Kremlin figures are cautioning against making false statement, “And I ask all normal people, until the opposite is proven, don’t spread any other versions, because there cannot be any other versions.”
Telegram Warns of Torture Claims
Telegram channels also warned of a “false” claim that the pilot had switched over to the Ukrainian side, arguing that the pilot is being “tortured” into saying that he did.
(There have been no credible claims so far that the Ukrainians have tortured any Russian prisoners. On the other hand, Russians have repeatedly and publicly demonstrated extreme inhumane treatment of captured Ukrainian soldiers and civilians.)
Prisoner Exchange for Safe Pilot Return
There are also calls for a potential prisoner exchange across pro-Kremlin Telegram channels, urging the Kremlin to ensure the pilot’s safe return.
A Ray of Hope for Russians
A prominent Telegram channel sent a heartfelt message, expressing their belief in the crew’s survival and their eventual homecoming.
Waiting for the Homecoming – Message Revealed
The Telegram message said, “Guys, we believe that you are alive, we’re waiting for you at home.”
