Germany should be able to, its a soldier fly indoor and soldiers both, even in the stakes than to transport in the operations – on the ground or in the air,” said Bartels of the German press Agency.

in fact, a majority of the flights take place for the German soldiers, within Afghanistan, with civilian rented helicopters,” said the SPD politician. “These are often in the Russia-built Mi-17, which are of course not protected as our own helicopter. You fly in use not two by two, as it actually corresponds to military Standards. Because we have a contract, and thus the safety is somehow guaranteed.”
