MOSCOW, November 2. /TASS/. A private Mi-2 helicopter made an emergency landing in Yamal, northwestern Siberia, the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations reports on its website, refuting earlier reports about a helicopter crash.
The Urals transport investigation department of the Russian Investigative Committee earlier said an eyewitness had reported about a crash over the phone, but the connection was cut. A team of rescuers was dispatched to the site of reported crash.
“The helicopter made an emergency landing. There were four people on board, nobody was injured,” the report said. It said it would take the team of rescuers long to get to the site, as they will have to cover about 200 kilometers of rough terrain.
A law enforcement source said the helicopter, belonging to a senior official from Gazpromneft oil refining company, was on an unsanctioned flight.
