Kyrgyz helicopters detected in combat zone in Somalia

Kyrgyz helicopters were found in the combat zone in the African state of Somalia. The deputy Kanybek Imanaliev announced this today at the session of the Parliament.

According to him, Russia delivered the helicopters to Kyrgyzstan as technical assistance. «However, through a private firm in Uganda, they were sent to the combat zone in Somalia. The authority of the republic was damaged. The equipment was provided by Russia. We can not use it in such a way,» said Kanybek Imanaliev.

The Prime Minister Mukhammedkaly Abylgaziev replied: «We will take measures, if these actions damage the image of Kyrgyzstan.»
