Six persons perish in helicopter crash in Chechnya
Six persons have perished and one was seriously injured in a helicopter crash that occurred in Southern Chechnya, a source from the headquarters deployed at the accident venue near the village of Shatoi has reported as quoted by the "Interfax".
The Mi-8 helicopter with FSB's Frontier Service militaries on board has crashed today in the high-mountainous Itum-Kala District.
Presumably, three crew members and five militaries were on board, the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent was told in the republic's Ministry for Emergencies (MfE).
