Two helicopters - level 2

Two helicopters - level 2

03-03-2014 07:00

A security camera video from Ukraine emerged. It shows the departure of the Ukrainian President Yanukovich from his residence.

The video shows some trucks which are loaded and driven away. A group of people arrives with bags and boxes of belongings which are boarded onto two waiting helicopters. The Ukrainian President was on one of them.

The video cannot be verified, and we don’t know where the president is at the moment.

Difficult words: residence (home), departure (leaving), belongings (the things you own), verify (find out if it’s real), at the moment (right now).

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