…By Jack Sylva for TDPel Media. In a significant move, Zimbabwe has acquired nearly 20 helicopters from Russia for various purposes, including medical services, air policing, and search and rescue operations.


The helicopters were handed over to the Zimbabwean government by a Russian delegation at the Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport in Harare.

Expanding the Partnership:

The purchase of these helicopters comes after President Emmerson Mnangagwa personally appealed to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The Zimbabwean government, which previously received a donated ambulance helicopter from Russia, aims to enhance its private-public partnership with the country.

Utilization for Critical Operations:

The newly acquired helicopters will play a crucial role in providing medical services, ensuring air policing, and conducting search and rescue operations within Zimbabwe.

These engagements reflect Zimbabwe’s commitment to fostering closer ties with Russia and exploring mutually beneficial opportunities.
