Russian Defense Ministry denies terrorists’ claims about downing Russian helicopter in Syria

Lattakia, SANA – The Russian Defense Ministry denied allegations of terrorist organizations that a Russian helicopter was shot down in Lattakia countryside.

“All aircraft of Russia’s Aerospace Forces in the Syrian Arab Republic are at their bases or involved in routine missions. Claims made by terrorist-controlled media sources about a Russian helicopter allegedly being shot down have nothing to do with reality,” the spokesperson of Russian Coordination Center in Hmeimim said.

Earlier in the day, terrorists from “Ahrar al-Cham Movement” terror organization claimed that they downed a military helicopter near the village of Salma in the countryside of Lattakia.
