ULAN-UDE, October 9 (Itar-Tass) —— The crew and passengers of EMERCOM’s helicopter, which had made emergency landing, were delivered to Chita, press service of the regional branch of Russia’s EMERCOM reported on Sunday.
“A Mi-8 of Russia’s EMERCOM delivered to Chita the crew and passengers of the helicopter, which had made an emergency landing earlier near the Altan village,” the source said.
Three crew members and four passengers “feel well.”
