Helicopter's crash on Kamchatka caused by violation of flying rules in mountainous area

The Mi-8 helicopter crashed on Kamchatka because its crew violated the rules of flying in the mountainous area, said Russian Emergencies Minister Sergei Shoigu on Tuesday, commenting on the results of the meeting of the state commission for investigating the causes of the crash.

"The crew flew on an impermissibly low height, lower than a safe height, and it did not take a decision to return or to stop the flight when the weather did not ensure the possibility to continue a safe visual flight. As a result, the helicopter clashed with the land," said the minister.

The helicopter crashed on August 20. Twenty people were on its board - seventeen passengers, including Sakhalin governor Igor Farkhutdinov, and three members of the crew. All of them were killed.

In response to the unlawful December 1 arrest and detention of Chinese tech giant Huawei's chief financial officer Sabrina Meng Wanzhou by Canadian authorities in Vancouver at the behest of the Trump regime, facing possible unacceptable extradition to the US, Beijing warned its high-tech personnel last month against traveling to America unless it's essential.
