How long has that been sitting there? The entire heli is melted and toast, but there are weeds growing all around it and the pristine white paint on the washer survived the flames and heat? If there was that much toasting in the area that washer would be bare metal and surface rusted nearly overnight, certainly full of rust by the time grass was able to reclaim the area after a fire that literally melted the heli... I call occam's razor, that washer was dumped there after the fact or specifically placed there for the photo...

I want to also add, that this is claimed to be an Mi-28, it's a two seat attack copter, no cargo storage... It does have a small engine compartment area that can be accessed through a side panel that is claimed to hold up to two people laying down in a rescue scenario, but the access panel is designed for people to crawl into, it isn't large enough to cram a washer into and from pictures the engine compartment isn't even big enough to cram a washer in even if it did fit through the access panel... I call BS...

Even that looks photoshopped, why are all the tops gone, where did they go?

That aside, every modern military nowadays has field laundry units, could be something as simple as that...

Russia has been using all sorts of outdated crap during this invasion, a rail based laundry unit would be utterly stupid to roll into an active war area where drones are attacking regularly, assuming there are even intact rails in that area... It would make far more sense for some kind of make shift easy to move laundry setup in a vehicle, no? It also makes little sense to loot multiple washing machines, I mean seriously, just think about how stupid that is, they mock the theft of washing machines as stupid, but then act like that is the only thing that can be happening in the picture... There are 1001 other things of more value that are far easier to transport then 3 washing machines and it's highly unlikely that the truck and soldiers were heading back to Russia any day soon anyway...

Seems to me people see what they want to see... As for the top being plastic might be or might not be, or it might be photoshopped or it might be a laundry unit, anyone's guess...

Let's revisit the original picture of the heli, to touch upon my people see what they want to see, it's claimed to be a washing machine next to a Mi-28 crash site, a 2 seat attack heli that has no viable cargo area that would hold such a large item... So how did it get there? Is it really a washing machine? Here is my opinion first I ignore the silliness that is theft of washing machine that the propaganda machine seems to have clung to as that makes no sense at all... Option 1 not my choice, but I put it out there, it's something that was placed there post crash, the green plants all around a torched vehicle show some time has passed since the crash, the bright white apparently untorched finish is also odd, assuming it's a steel washer... Option 2, IMO the mostly likely truth, people are seeing what they want to see, while ignoring Occam's razor, Occsam's razor suggest it's part of the copter that maybe sort of looks like something else... I'm willing to bet that is the truth, and that it is simply a section of the louvers on the back of the heli and whatever other parts of the heli, the bright white finish is likely because they are constructed of an aluminum alloy that just happens to oxidize bright white and rapidly after exposure to heat that removes it's finish and the weather... Look at this picture, to me the louvers look just like what is circled in the crashed Mi-28 heli picture...

So again going back to my people see what they want to see, are they really washing machines in the truck? And even if they are were they looted or part of a laundry unit? I'm betting that it's not a washing machine next to the heli at all...

Like I said some see what they want to see to fit the made up story... It's a Mi-28, there is a picture of the tail number in other photos from the crash scene that match directly up to a known Mi-28 that was photographed in 2017... Everything points to it being a part of the heli itself, the louvers are a dead giveaway, IMO... Can you point me to a washer with those style louvers and what appears to be rows of rivets all around the edges? What exactly identifies this as a washing machine besides the fact that some dolt on Twitter claimed it was? I'm simply not jumping to the Twitter propaganda claims of it being a washing machine, sorry but everything I see points to it NOT being a washing machine...

Louvered body panels from the heli, this is not the side/front/back of a washing machine https://i.postimg.cc/TPVNgnFc/louvers.jpg Another photo from crash, showing tail number identifying it as a known Mi-28 https://i.postimg.cc/8P7yw2xc/rf-13654.jpg Another photo from crash, showing Mi-28 style 'wing' and armaments https://i.postimg.cc/8CGmQcPK/wing.jpg

Photo of same Mi-28 with matching tail number wing style and armaments from 2017

Sorry but it's not an Mi-35 and it's not a washing machine...

So? Do you have a video of them looting washing machines and loading them into that truck? There is a WORLD of difference between looting mostly food items vs looting household appliances, and how convenient that they ripped off their insignia patch and pants and left both behind so they could be blamed for looting the Snickers 🤣

They were just laundering money and doing it literally. Instructions were in Chinese.

You never know when you might really need to do a load or two.
