As reported, on December 15 last year, Pucara Defensa reported that the Argentine government intends to transfer two Russian-made MI-17E transport helicopters to Ukraine.

Both helicopters are equipped with additional tanks and a cargo crane for very long-range flights in Antarctica. One of them has not been in use for two years due to problems with the supply of components from sanctioned Russia.
