The production looks like can be seen in the video below - this is the most common non-insulated metal hangar in which employees of the PMR Prosecutor General’s Office found more than ten helicopters at different stages of assembly. According to preliminary data, the machines were partially assembled from the Ka-26 units and assemblies. Or, at least, they were similar in modification to this Kamov model. Local OMG news portal writes that law enforcement officials do not disclose the exact location of the clandestine factory. According to the official press release, it is located in one of the settlements on the banks of the Dniester in the Criuleni district.
Most of the workers in this production, including management, were locals. Counterfeit rotorcraft were built without the necessary permits, and documents confirming the origin of parts, assemblies, and assemblies were missing. Based on the results of the searches, the prosecutor's office opened a criminal case on the fact of preparation for helicopter smuggling. According to the legislation of the republic, violators face 3 to 10 years in prison. Law enforcement agencies have to establish all the circumstances of the organization of this plant, suppliers of necessary materials and disclose the entire distribution scheme of products.
