The tail of a helicopter from Dmitry Medvedev’s cortege came off during landing, when he was visiting the Beloyarsk nuclear power plant. Medvedev traveled back by car, which caused a huge traffic jam.
On March 2, the tail rotor of a Mi-8 helicopter from the motorcade of Dmitry Medvedev, deputy chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, came off during landing at the Beloyarsk nuclear power plant in the Sverdlovsk region, E1.RU reports.
According to the publication, during the official’s visit to the Beloyarsk NPP on March 2, the helicopter touched a road sign during landing, as a result of which the tail rotor was torn off. Medvedev was not in the helicopter at the time of the accident.
After the incident, a crowd of security officers immediately rushed to the helicopter, but representatives of the Beloyarsk NPP refrained from commenting on the incident.

However, the deputy chairman of the Security Council was already driving back by land transport, and the unplanned blocking of the highway for the sake of his motorcade provoked large-scale traffic jams. For the passage of the official, several highways were blocked and police patrols were placed on the roads.
Apparently, it was not possible to quickly resolve the issue of repairs, as local residents told reporters that the damaged Mi-8 remained standing in front of the fourth block of the nuclear power plant on Saturday, March 4.
Earlier, Focus wrote that on March 4, Medvedev spoke out sharply in response to the news about the possibility of building a factory for the production of Panther tanks in Ukraine.
Recall that on February 11, Medvedev threatened Europe with “disappearance” after Zelensky’s visit to Brussels.
