Russian helicopter crash kills nine

MOSCOW (Reuters) – Nine people were killed on Wednesday when a helicopter crashed in Russia’s far north, Russia’s Emergencies Ministry said.

“The helicopter crashed as it was coming into land and nine people were killed,” said a spokesman.

The MI-8 helicopter was being operated by Russian carrier UT-Air when the crash occurred in the Yamal-Nenetsk region, the spokesman said.
