MOSCOW, October 15. /TASS/. Russia’s Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) has joined the search operation for a Mi-8 helicopter that went missing in the republic of Tyva, East Siberia, on October 10.
A Roscosmos spokesman told TASS on Wednesday that the agency had arranged to space survey of the area where the helicopter might have crashed. Detailed photos of a territory with an area of 45,000 square kilometers were made available to the emergencies ministry, which is in charge of the search operation.
Radio contact with the helicopter of Tyva-Avia Airline with 12 people on board was lost on October 10 when it was on the way between the communities of Sorug and Kyzyl, located 270 kilometres away from each other. Local eyewitnesses saw it on that day flying in that direction amid strong winds. The searched zone has rugged terrain.
