Russian helicopter crash kills 18

18 people killed in helicopter crash in Russia

Eighteen people are feared killed after an MI-8 helicopter crashed in the Krasnoyarsk region of Siberia, Russia, according to preliminary reports.

There were three crew members and 15 passengers aboard the Mi-8.

Russian airline Utair has sent specialists to the scene, which is in an oil field managed by the energy company Rosneft some 1,600 miles northeast of Moscow.

Utair has launched its own investigation of the Siberian crash and offered its condolences to families of the deceased.

The helicopter with cargo landed safely after the crew dropped the external suspension, it added.

Google is reportedly planning to launch a censored search app in China
China has in the past two years imposed increasingly strict rules on foreign companies, including new censorship restrictions . The work followed a meeting between Google Chief Executive Officer Sundar Pichai and a top Chinese government official.

Utair said the helicopter was made in Russian Federation in 2010. "The commander of the RA-25640 helicopter was born in 1985, graduated from the Omsk Flight School, accumulated 5,990 flight hours, including 2,300 hours as an aircraft commander", the press service said.

In February, a Saratov Airlines An-148 regional jet crashed about six minutes after takeoff from Moscow's Domodedovo Airport, killing all 71 people aboard. No one survived, said the statement.

Helicopters frequently carry loads in slings that hang below the craft.

In November 2017, six people died when a small plane crash-landed in the Khabarovsk region.

"The second take-off was performed with passengers who were workers on shifts at the oil station".
