Two helicopters - level 1

Here is news from Ukraine. The Ukrainian president is leaving his home. There is a video of his departure.

The video shows some trucks. People move things onto the trucks, and then the trucks leave.

You can see two helicopters in the video. People bring bags and boxes to the helicopters. The things are loaded onto the helicopters. They fly away. The Ukrainian president is on one helicopter. We don’t know where the helicopters go. We don’t know where the president is.

Difficult words: departure (leaving), truck (big car for moving things), helicopter (small flying vehicle), load (put).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
