MOSCOW, July 31 (RIA Novosti) – A United Nations helicopter with a Russian crew crash-landed in Ethiopia on Wednesday, a Russian Embassy official said, adding that all four crewmembers were alive but three were in a serious condition.

All of the crewmembers are at a hospital in Addis Ababa, Pavel Temnenko, deputy head of the embassy’s consular section, told RIA Novosti.

A representative of the company that owns the Russian-made Mi-8 helicopter, which was reportedly being operated under contract with the UN, told RIA Novosti that the craft was en route from Djibouti to Ethiopia when it made a “hard landing.”
