    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The Russian embassy in the Central African Republic (CAR) is reviewing reports that a helicopter with Russian military specialists aboard made a crash landing in the country on Sunday, ambassador Vladimir Titorenko told Sputnik.

    According to Titorenko, the command of Russian military specialists also did not confirm that such an incident took place.
