MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The Russian Defense Ministry plans to renew the production of Mi-14 Haze nuclear-capable amphibious anti-submarine helicopters, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov said Thursday.

"Yes, work is already being done in regard to this issue," Borisov told RIA Novosti at the HeliRussia-2016 exposition in Moscow.

The production of the Mi-14s was halted in 1980 and were removed from service in 1996 apparently under US pressure.
