    TORZHOK (Tver region), September 26 (RIA Novosti) - Russian helicopter pilots are ready to participate in a UN peacekeeping mission in Sudan, said an official from the Torzhok Combat Training Center, whose pilots have recently finished a similar mission in Sierra Leone.

    The official said the issue had already been discussed and the pilots had studied Sudan's geography and climate.

    "The climate in Sudan resembles that in Sierra Leone and the Russian Mi-24 helicopters performed well in these hard conditions," the official said.
