Kazaviaspas helicopter cannot take off for climbers search in Tian-Shan due to bad weather
Astana. August 21. KazTAG - Kazaviaspas helicopter cannot take off for the climbers search in Tian-Shan due to bad weather, reports the emergency situations committee of the Ministry of Interior Affairs of Kazakhstan.
"MI-171 helicopter of Kazaviaspas with a group of military alpinists cannot depart from Karkary camp and start the search operation due to bad weather conditions. It is snowing in the mountains. We are waiting for the weather to improve," said Nursultan Nurakhmetov, official representative of the committee of emergency situations.
As it was reported, the militaries started a rescue operation on July 19 in the mountains of Kyrgyzstan searching for Kazakhstani climbers - Marat Otepbayev, Andrey Korneyev, Alexander Chechulin, who has presumably died of wet lungs. The search is complicated by poor weather conditions in the area.
