Here’s the link to the above post.
When NewsMobile fact-checked the post, it was found to be fake.
We extracted the keyframes of the video and put them through a Reverse Image Search. The search led us to the same video which was uploaded on YouTube with the title: “Direct hit from MANPADS destroyed Russian helicopters one by one | ARMA 3: Milsim”
Based on the description, we ran a keyword search and found that ARMA 3 is an open-world, realism-based, military tactical shooter video game, developed and published by Bohemia Interactive.
Hence, based on the above information, it is evident that the video is of a clip from a game and not actual footage of Russian helicopters being shot.
