WASHINGTON, November 14, 2:44 /ITAR-TASS/. The United States Department of Defence has given up its plans to buy 15 Russian-made Mi-17 helicopters for the Afghan army in 2014, Senator John Kornin said on Wednesday.
The United States Congress repeatedly spoke against buying Mi-17 helicopters from Russia’s arms trader Rosoboronexport mainly because of considerations of promoting interests of domestic manufacturers of rotorcraft. The U.S. State Department of Defence several times categorically opposed the Congress on that matter, saying its decision was both in the national interests and in the interests of the Afghan army and security forces.
