The Ukrainian military practiced a helicopter landing. This aircraft easily creates the effect of surprise for the enemy, according to the Land Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

"Practicing a helicopter landing from the 12th separate brigade of the Land Forces Aviation named after Viktor Pavlenko," the report says.

According to the military, helicopters allow for quick and unexpected delivery of troops.

"This ensures suddenness of action and seizure of the initiative on the battlefield. The measures practiced by our units with the direct participation of army aviation are part of the special training of personnel and helicopter crews to perform highly complex tasks," the Land Forces says.
