MOSCOW, August 23. /TASS/. The Russian Helicopters holding (subsidiary of Rostec State Corporation) is in negotiations with the Iranian colleagues on the supply of the light helicopters Ansat and Kamov Ka-226T for Iran’s Health Ministry, Deputy Director General of the holding Alexander Shcherbinin said on Tuesday.

The holding’s press service said that from August 23 to 25 Russian Helicopters will for the first time hold a seminar for the Iranian operators and potential customers of Russian helicopters. The Russian experts will present to the potential customers civil multipurpose equipment. "These are the Ka-32A11VS fire-fighting helicopters, the newest Mi-171A2 for search-rescue and offshore operations, as well as the Mi-26T and Mi26T2 heavy helicopters for disaster clean-up operations, delivery of humanitarian aid and transportation of people," according to the holding.
