The helicopters were delivered to two bases stationed in the Primorsky Krai and Kamchatka, Far east region of the country, by Il-76 military transport airplanes. Three helicopters have undergone scheduled intermediate overhaul, and were modernized at the Kumertau aircraft enterprise.
According to Russian Defense Ministry, the Navy crew will start operating them soon.
