“They will join the two [helicopters] that are already in service of the [Argentinean] Air Force,” Rossi said, as cited by La Segunda newspaper.

 The first two Mi-171E helicopters were bought by Argentina Defense Ministry in 2011 for participation in the Antarctic campaigns.

“Strong ties with Russia will be very beneficial for our defense policy as well as for development of our armed forces,” the minister added.

Buenos Aires expects to realize the deal on intergovernmental level, not engaging any commercial banks, according to Rossi.

On Thursday, Russia and Argentine signed 11 cooperation agreements, including the one between the defense ministries.
