    Argentina has repeatedly spoken in favor of a new contract for the supply of Russian helicopters.

    The holding ‘Russian Helicopters’ expects to sign new contracts with Argentina in the coming year.

    Already, Argentina has purchased two Mi-171 helicopters to fly to Antarctica.

    "We look forward to strengthening the negotiating process for the purchase of the Russian helicopters, following the visit of the head of state of Argentina to Moscow,” said the deputy head of the holding Alexander Scherbinin.

    According to him, the Argentinian side has repeatedly spoken in favor of a new contract for the supply of Russian helicopters, as the “experience of their operation in Antarctica confirmed their excellent performance."
