At the international airport of Somalia’s capital Mogadishu, a Russian helicopter of UTair – Helicopter Services JSC was fired upon, a statement by the Russian Embassy in Djibouti revealed.

The publication clarifies that the helicopter participated in the air transport support of the UN humanitarian mission in Somalia. As a result of the shelling, there were no casualties – the aircraft received minor damage, and the pilots continue their work as usual.

The diplomatic mission, citing preliminary data, said that the Al-Shabaab terrorist group could be behind the incident. An investigation is underway.

As the publication clarifies, the group may be associated with al-Qaeda (recognized as a terrorist organization and banned in Russia), which hinders the humanitarian mission of the UN.
