KHABAROVSK, October 13 (Itar-Tass) —— An airplane An-74 and a helicopter Mi-8 with rescuers onboard were dispatched from Khabarovsk to the Nikolayevsk-on-Amur to search for three policemen, who got missing overnight to Friday, a source in the Far Eastern regional emergency situation centre told Itar-Tass on Saturday.
The policemen were participating in the operation codenamed Putina-2012 (fishing season) to find the poachers, which are fishing illegally in the lower reaches of the Amur River, the transport department of the Russian Interior Ministry in the Far Eastern Federal District said.
