7 Injured in Gazprom Helicopter Crash Landing in Siberia

At least seven people were injured after a Mil Mi-8 helicopter of the Gazprom-controlled airline crash-landed in the Tomsk Region in western Siberia, Russia's Emergencies Ministry reported on Sunday.

The Mi-8 helicopter made an emergency landing and fell on its side at 9:50 a.m. Moscow time (05:50 GMT) on Sunday in the Kargasok district of the Tomsk Region.

"There were 17 people aboard the helicopter. According to preliminary data, seven people were hurt. There were no deaths in the incident," the ministry said.

The regional center of Russia's Emergencies Ministry reported the Mi-8 helicopter made an emergency landing after its take-off. There were 14 gas industry workers and three crew members aboard the helicopter, it said.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
