Russian helicopters may return to Afghan market - Kremlin aide

MOSCOW. March 12 (Interfax) - Russian helicopters may return to the Afghan market, Russian presidential aide for military-technical cooperation Vladimir Kozhin said.

"I think we will find an option to preserve our helicopters in Afghanistan so they defend the official government of Afghanistan," Kozhin said in an interview with the Rossiya-24 (VGTRK) television channel.

Afghanistan is currently receiving U.S. helicopters, Kozhin said. "All possible methods and measures of anti-diplomatic pressure have been employed to make Afghanistan take this way,"Kozhin said.
