Philippines Scraps Russian Helicopter Deal Over Potential Sanctions

The Philippines has scrapped a deal to buy 16 Russian military-transport helicopters over fears of U.S. sanctions, the Associated Press reported Wednesday.

The $227 million deal to acquire Mi-17s from Moscow was approved in November and canceled in June, before the end of then-President Rodrigo Duterte’s term in office. 

“We could face sanctions,” Former Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana told AP on Tuesday night.

Lorenzana at the time said an initial payment had been made by the Philippines in January. He did not disclose what happened to the payment after the deal was scuttled. 

Besides combat, the Mi-17s would have been used for search-and-rescue operations as well as medical evacuations. 

The first batch of the multi-purpose helicopters would have been scheduled for delivery 2024.

Moscow can appeal Manila’s decision to back out during the contract’s “termination process,” but the Philippine government has little room to reconsider, the AP cited an unnamed Philippine military official as saying. 

The United States, the Philippines’ treaty ally that has imposed heavy sanctions on Russia aimed at forcing it to withdraw from Ukraine, could offer Manila similar heavy-lift helicopters in exchange for the scrapped Russian deal, Lrenzana said.

    1. At your nation situations for face the China's aggression nearby, close by to the US and their allies is the best choice. It's a must for Filipinos to push their navy and air power. Filipinos is like huge blockade area in pasific to hold China's invasion to the South (Aussie and Solomon)

  24. Tunggu Hasil Investigasi, TNI AD Kandangkan Seluruh Helikopter Jenis Mi-17


    Penyebab jatuhnya helikopter Mi-17V5 milik Pusat Penerbangan TNI AD di Kawasan Industri Kendal, Jawa Tengah, pada Sabtu (6/6), masih belum diketahui. Sejauh ini, tim independen masih terus melakukan penyelidikan.

    “Investigasi masih berjalan, karena ada tim, tim kan independen,” kata Komandan Pusat Penerbang Angkatan Darat (Danpuspenerbad), Mayor Jenderal TNI Teguh Pudjo Rumekso, di Semarang, Minggu (14/6).

    Teguh mengaku, dirinya belum bisa memberikan informasi terkini terkait hasil investigasi. Dia juga menegaskan, investigasi membutuhkan waktu yang tidak sebentar.

    “Jadi kalau saya ditanya hasilnya bagaimana? Karena ini independen nanti dari tim yang akan umumkan bagaimana hasilnya, tidak bisa secepat itu,” ucap dia.

    Selain itu, atas insiden ini, pihaknya memutuskan untuk memarkirkan helikopter jenis Mi-17 sampai hasil investigasi keluar. Hal itu demi menghindari kejadian yang tidak diinginkan.

    “Mi-17 seluruhnya ada 12, total 9 yang operasional. Dengan adanya kejadian ini, yang satu jenis dengan MI-17 kita masih grounded,” tutur Teguh.
