Latvia sends another helicopter to Ukraine

Latvia has sent another helicopter to Ukraine to help in that country's brave defense against Russian aggression.

News of the most recent piece of hardware to be sent to Kyiv was released by Defense Minister Ināra Mūrniece on social media, who said the model in question was a Mi-17.

Latvia's acquisition of modern U.S. 'Black Hawk' helicopters has rendered its small fleet of ageing Soviet-era choppers surplus to requirements – though they can usefully be employed in Ukraine. 

A year ago, four helicopters were sent, as reported by LSM at the time.
