Russian Helicopters Group, part of Russia’s state hi-tech corporation Rostec, will repair four Mil Mi-17 rotorcraft of Hungary’s Defense Ministry, Group Deputy CEO for After-Sale Maintenance Igor Chechikov said on Sept. 15.

"Russian Helicopters Group’s aircraft repair plant will overhaul four rotorcraft in accordance with a contract signed in July 2016. On Sept. 6, the helicopters were brought onboard an Antonov An-124 Ruslan [Condor] plane to Novosibirsk [in West Siberia]," Chechikov said.
