MINSK, 12 July (BelTA) – The Belarusian pilot who was injured in the helicopter crash in Afghanistan is now in the burn center in Krasnodar, Russia, BelTA learnt from Maria Vanshina, Deputy Head of the Information Office of the Foreign Ministry of the Republic of Belarus.

The Foreign Ministry found out the details of the helicopter crash in Afghanistan.
