The fact that the helicopter made a hard landing in Bashkiria, earlier, on January 7, was reported by the Volga Transport Prosecutor's Office. He flew from Ufa to the village of Pavlovka. There were three people on board in total. One of them died on the spot, another died from his injuries later. The third victim is in serious condition.
