    According to the Russian deputy defense minister, Russia is planning to buy around 15 medium multipurpose Mi-38 helicopters.

    ZHUKOVSKY (Sputnik) – The Russian Defense Ministry is planning to buy around 15 medium multipurpose Mi-38 helicopters, Deputy Defense Minister Yury Borisov said Tuesday.

    The Mi-38 can be used for carrying cargo and passengers, as well as for search-and-rescue operations and serve as a flying hospital.
