MOSCOW, July 2 (Itar-Tass) - The reports, which several sources made over the casualties of the crash of a helicopter Mi-8 in Yakutia, are not confirmed, spokeswoman of the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations Irina Rossius told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“The rescuers failed to get to the place of the tragedy yet, official reports about the casualties were not made. The reported figures are just hypothetical and are not confirmed. There is no radio contact with the crew, therefore, it is impossible to confirm or reject the number of injured people,” she said.
Rossius noted that a colossal work of all services to get to the crash site is in progress. “Yes, there are bad weather conditions now, but all possible is being done to find and save those, who were probably injured in the hard landing of the helicopter,” the spokeswoman said.
She noted that the Ministry of Emergency Situations is monitoring the situation and is coordinating the work of all services. “We are ready to report about the work done every two hours,” Rossius added.
