Avia Pro: Russian combat helicopters dispersed an American checkpoint in northern Syria.
The US military blocking the passage of the Russian military became the “victims” of Russian combat helicopters, which, at a height of several tens of meters, clearly demoralized US military personnel. Judging by the video frames, in connection with the approach of the Russian Mi-8 and Mi-35M helicopters, the American military even had to take a seat behind machine guns on the roof of armored personnel carriers, which obviously means that the US military was aware of the capabilities of Russian combat aircraft.

The published video footage shows one of the latest incidents in northeast Syria when a large Russian military convoy was blocked by American troops. Information about sending Russian combat helicopters to this area was previously provided, however, judging by the video frames, the airborne forces did indeed demonstrate their decisiveness to the United States, flying only a few tens of meters above the American armored personnel carriers.
Middle Eastern analysts had a lot of questions about the fact that the United States was prepared to hit Russian helicopters, as evidenced by the video clip on which an American soldier occupies an artillery turret aimed at the air, which indicates the seriousness of the clashes between Russia and the United States in Syria.
Earlier it was reported that American fighters were also spotted in the same area, however, judging by the absence of the latter in the video, the information was probably inaccurate.
