Mi-17: What’s the Russian-built Helicopter being given to Ukraine?

Ukraine War

Known by the NATO code ‘Hip’ and built by Russians, Mi-17 helicopters are being supplied by the US to aid the Ukrainian troops on the battlefield. Originally purchased from Russia for Afghanistan’s deposed government, the US is now supplying the Russian-built helicopter ironically in response to Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine. Primarily used for utility missions like troops and cargo transport, the Mi-17 can be armed with forward-firing rockets and other weapons and has been seen across social media being used by Ukrainian forces defending against Russia’s invasion.
