GORNO-ALTAISK, July 4 (Itar-Tass) - Yakutia’s head Yegor Borisov has instructed to create a governmental commission on the Mi-8 helicopter crash to provide aid to relatives and families of dead people.
Chairperson of the Yakutian government Galina Danchikova has been appointed head of the commission, which also involves the Assembly’s speaker, the vice-premiers, the transport minister, the interior minister, the ministers of healthcare, labour and social development, finance and other officials.
The commission shall coordinate actions of the authorities, rescuers and doctors, take measures to organize funerals and provide material aid to injured people and families of dead passengers from the government’s reserve fund.
The Mi-8 helicopter made the flight on the route between the Deputatsky small town and the village of Kazachye. On July 2 the Mi-8 helicopter left the small town of Deputatsky for the village of Kazachye. Earlier, Yakutia’s deputy premier Anatoly Skrybykin said, “The helicopter flew over the heights and turned into a powerful downburst cell. The helicopter touched upon a fell and dapped. The helicopter caught fire.” Law enforcers told Itar-Tass that the helicopter lost control due to air bursts and hooked a fell.
A total of 440 people and 72 units of equipment are involved in the rescue operation.
