The pilot of a Ukrainian armed forces Mil Mi-24 helicopter downed near Slavyansk, has been released, the Defense Ministry reported. He is being treated in a military hospital, the ministry said in a statement.

Slavyansk militia shot down three Ukrainian helicopters taking part in an attack on the city last week. Only one of the six pilots manning the aircraft survived. Apparently, the militia handed over the sole survivor and the bodies of the dead pilots to Kiev loyalists.
