Foreign Ministry of Ukraine is verifying the information on the helicopter crash in Congo with two Ukrainian pilots on board, FM spokesman Oleksandr Dykusarov told ForUm.

"We've sent an official inquiry to the embassy in Congo, and now it depends on the local authorities to verify the information and inform our diplomats.

A local official says a police helicopter crash in the Republic of Congo killed two Ukrainian pilots.
Police commissioner Patou Mascott said Tuesday that the MI-2 helicopter was carrying only the two pilots when it crashed to the ground and caught fire on Monday in Mbouambe, a town 180 kilometres north of the capital, Brazzaville.

Press service of Ukraine's Defense Ministry reports that the pilots were not enlisted among the peacemaking contingent of Ukraine in Congo and might work with local airlines.
