A Russian helicopter KA-52 crashed during the scheduled flight over the eastern regions of Syria. Russia stated that the bodies of two dead pilots have been delivered to their assigned airport by the search and rescue team. According to the preliminary data, the cause of the accident could be a technical malfunction. The head of the Russian Center for reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria, Major-General Yury Yevtushenko, announced that on Monday, as part of earlier agreements, the relocation of terrorists and members of their families from the de-escalation zone "Homs" has began. "For these purposes, a humanitarian corridor with a checkpoint near the settlement of Er-Rustan has been opened today."
