Mi-24 not found yet

The third day of searches for the lost Federal Forces’ Mi-24 helicopter has not brought any results. The main trouble which takes place is the bad weather: heavy fog and low visibility – only 100 m. For example, today morning two search helicopters of frontier guards and six of the army’s group did not managed to take off. Now 160 militaries are additionally involved in the search operation. The commission of Federal Frontier Service with first deputy of Aviation Department, major-general Anatoly Zheleznov at the head has arrived in the city of Khankala, ITAR-TASS
