Russian Helicopters, June 26, 2015 - Ulan-Ude - On 24-26 June, representatives of 70 countries' security agencies and a delegation from the UN had the chance to learn more about the products that are made at Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant, a Russian Helicopters' company (part of State Corporation Rostec).

Security Council secretaries, ministers, presidential aides and prime ministers responsible for security issues, security service chiefs and other senior security sector personnel, gathered to discuss live issues in national, regional, and international security. Secretary of the Russian Federation’s Security Council Nikolai Patrushev took part in the meeting.

The Mi-171Sh is renowned across the globe for its impressive flight capabilities.

Multirole Mi-171Sh helicopters are equipped with new systems to enhance their operational efficiency, are fitted with complex defences to protect their main systems and crew, and are equipped with the latest avionics and instrumentation. Customers can choose from a wide range of specialised optional equipment, as well as comprehensive service and maintenance if necessary.

Meeting participants also had the opportunity to ask questions on areas of particular interest and evaluate the possibility of deploying the helicopter in domestic security operations and during international security operations on the basis of mutual respect, taking all parties' interests into account.
