KUBINKA /Moscow Region/, June 16. /TASS/. The Helicopters of Russia has concluded a contract with the Defense Ministry of Belarus for the supply of twelve Mi-8MTV-5 military transport helicopters in 2016-2017, the holding company’s CEO Alexander Mikheyev has told the media.
"The Mi-8MTV will let the allied state enhance its defense capabilities and expand the potential of the armed forces," he said on the sidelines of the Army-2015 show. "The conclusion of such a large-scale contract has become yet another step towards strengthening friendship and business relations between the two countries."
The contract will be performed in keeping with the Russia-Belarus agreement on development of military-technical cooperation concluded in late 2009. The Belarusian military will get the helicopters possessing the same parameters as those used by the Russian military.
