People rescued from the force-landed copter

People and "black boxes" from the force-landed helicopter were delivered to Petropavlovsk Kamchatski (Russian Far East).

According to the press-service head of the North-Eastern frontier guards department Andrei Orlov, three crew members and a passenger as well as both "black boxes" from the force landed helicopter have been delivered by a frontier service copter. The crew and the passengers suffered multiple bruises and cut wounds.

Major General Valeri Cherdicshev, Air Commander of the North-Eastern frontier guards, who flow one of the two rescue helicopters said that the damaged machine with the broken off tail-part was on its right side partly under the ice in Kalagyr lake.

Experts of the Kamchctka garrison procurator's office investigated the crush site.

Mi-8 Helicopter of the anti-air defence air regiment made a forced landing on January 22, 35 kilometers North of Shipunski cape while performing a routine flight of the Commander's inspection of troops.

Radio-contact with the copter was lost after three passengers were delivered to Shipunski cape. Later on, another helicopter crew discovered the damaged machine near Kalagyr lake some 100 kilometres North-East of Petropavlovsk Kamchatski. Three crew-members and two passengers were waiting for a rescue party in a hunters' shelter 2.5 kilometres from the landing site.

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.
