Turkey to send fire fighting helicopters to Russia

Turkey is set to send two fire fighting helicopters on Monday to fire-hit Russia in a bid to help the country to fight against a huge forest blaze, said a statement from Turkish Ministry of Environment & Forestry.

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has earlier talked with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin over phone about the forest fire in Russia that killed scores.

The two choppers will leave from western province of Izmir and southern province of Antalya for the Lipetsk region. The crew of the helicopters include one Turkish pilot and five Russians and five Ukrainians.
