ZHUHAI, October 31. /TASS/. Russia is taking part in repair of helicopters purchased by the United States for the armed forces of Afghanistan, Deputy Chief Executive Officer for after-sales services of Russian Helicopters Igor Chechikov told TASS in an interview on Monday.
"Proactive operation of our helicopters purchased by the United States is underway in Afghanistan; several countries make their repair. Furthermore, you are aware that the US government lifted sanctions on cooperation with Rosoboronexport exactly in respect of after-sales maintenance of Russian helicopters. This is because there is a large fleet of our helicopters in Afghanistan and the US pilots are flying them in particular, Chechikov said.
"Repair of the said helicopters is taking place with participation of the Russian party," he added.
Russia may repair about 200 Afghanistan’s defense helicopters if relevant agreements are reached with the US and repair plants in East Europe, Deputy CEO of Rosoboronexport Sergei Goreslavsky told TASS earlier.
