Russiα sends military helicopters to Central African Republic

Russiα reportedly has deployed two Mi-8AMTSh Hipp military helicopters to the Central African Republic.

On Friday, the heavy-lift An-124 Ruslan (Condor) cargo plane delivered two Russiαn Mi-8AMTSh Hipp multipurpose helicopters to the Bangui M’poko International Airport in the Central African Republic.

According to Radio Liberty, Russiα has already deployed hundreds of troops in the deeply unstable country amid an alleged coup bid ahead of presidential and parliamentary elections.

Russiα has also sent an additional 300 military instructors to the Central African Republic (CAR) to deal with what its foreign ministry calls a “sharp degradation of security”, multiple news outlets reported.

Furthermore, earlier this week, observers identified over a dozen Russiαn military trucks with soldiers and two armoured personnel carriers at Bangui airport.
