During his visit to Myanmar Russian Helicopters Holding Company (part of Rostec State Corporation) CEO Alexander Mikheev met with the Vice-president Nyan Tun. In particular, the parties discussed deliveries of Ansat and Mi-26 helicopters, RIA Novosti reports with reference to the company’s press-service.

“Russian Helicopters CEO Alexander Mikheev visited Myanmar and met with the country’s Vice-president Nyan Tun. They discussed Myanmar helicopter industry and possible deliveries of Ansat and Mi-26 helicopters to the country, as well as matters related to after-sales support of previously delivered vehicles,” the press-service explained.

The meeting was held in the network of an intergovernmental Russia-Myanmar commission on military-technical cooperation.

“Due to humid tropical climate and earthquakes Myanmar may use reliable vehicles made by Russian Helicopters to carry out medevac, fire-fighting and search-and-rescue operations,” Mikheev said.

During the rainfall season (June – September) Myanmar often faces devastating earthquakes, cyclones, floods and landslides. Droughts may also take place. According to experts, Russian helicopters are irreplaceable in times of natural disasters, because these vehicles are used to save people, deliver food, etc.
