Looks like that Ka-52 that was forced to land around Gostomel was blown up before the Russians withdrew after all, assuming the photo is of that one
The photo the Ukrainian troops made with the Ka-52 must have been from the first couple of days after the crew was extracted, but before that area was secured.
Apparently another Ka-52 was downed very recently on the Izyum-Slavyansk direction
Map of hostilities and the situation on the fronts on the evening of April 16
Quite a calm and successful day on all fronts. Particularly funny against this background is the statement of the President of Ukraine with clearly underestimated losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in 3,000 dead and 700 prisoners, when only Azovstal remained with a maximum of 2,500 soldiers out of 15,000-20,000 soldiers in Mariupol alone (by the way, today their losses amounted to 4,000 people), and in recent days 1464 soldiers of the Armed Forces have surrendered. However, this is not the first lie of President Ze/
Let's go over the main points:
Kharkov. It flies less often into the city itself, the main blows fall on the suburbs, but it flies methodically and often around the district, there are battles every day. There are large-scale clashes in Rogan, the Ukrainian side announced the occupation of the village, the Russian side is still silent - the fighting continues.
Izyum-Slavyansk. The border between Kharkiv region and the DPR is currently the hottest point of the common front. Very serious and fierce battles, artillery works from two sides, tank, sabotage battles, aviation, (several aircraft are shot down a day). Comrades on the ground share their observations that the pressure and scale of fighting is growing in this direction. Russian troops manage to advance towards Slavyansk, the enemy resists and suffers losses. We also have losses. The Russian military lost a K-52 helicopter, the enemy has more losses - several “dryers”. They report heavy losses among the 93rd brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, many prisoners and 200s. We have added paratroopers in this direction.
A little to the east of this direction is the last front of the LPR, an agglomeration of many settlements that are very close to each other. The main cities are Severodonetsk, Lisichansk, Rubizhnoye, Kremennaya, and the key city to them is Popasnaya. The Armed Forces of Ukraine here very thoroughly dug in and strengthened themselves for 8 years, organized excellent artillery positions on a hill. They talk about concrete shelters connected by kilometer-long tunnels. The Russian military has taken Rubizhne, but the cleansing is still going on there. In Severodonetsk on the outskirts of the fighting. At the Kremennaya battle. There are great successes in Popasnaya - yesterday the flag was hung on the City Council. Moving on. Russian tanks entered the city, helping with firepower. It must be assumed that the enemy is hurt. Arta also works tirelessly here, regular arrivals.
From Gorlovka to Gulyai-Polye, there are no changes, positional battles do not stop, there are active breakthroughs in several areas, in Marinka and in the Ugledar region.
Mariupol is almost ours. The last shortcomings of "Azov" and the Armed Forces of Ukraine settled in the industrial metropolis "Azovstal", they are very actively and loudly "ironed" by our VKS, there are rumors that even the FAB-3000 was thrown off. In other parts of the city, mopping-up operations are underway from isolated attempts to break out of the encirclement. Captivity continues.
No changes on the southern front, periodic skirmishes on the border of the Nikolaev and Kherson regions. Yesterday it was reported that there was a small exchange of prisoners, 5 Ukrainians were exchanged for 4 Russians. Arrivals in Nikolaev and Odessa region continue. Both sides have increased their forces here, perhaps more serious battles will begin.
