Incredible footage shows Hind helicopters skimming low over Ukrainian countryside

Watch: The footage shows Hind helicopters flying low over snow-covered fields and skimming along Ukrainian highways.

The Ukrainian Ministry of Defense has shared a video of Hind helicopters performing jaw-dropping manouevres over the Ukrainian countryside.

The footage, shared on its Twitter page, shows Mil Mi-34 helicopters flying low over snow-covered fields, skimming along Ukrainian highways and firing flares.

The helicopters, which can operate as gunships, attack helicopters and low-capacity troop transport, have to fly low to avoid anti-air weaponry.
