The demonstration of the helicopter’s capabilities was attended by Serbian Interior Minister Aleksandar Vulin and Russian Ambassador to Serbia Alexander Botsan-Kharchenko.

In late July, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said Serbia would receive two Russian-made Kamov Ka-32 firefighting helicopters within a month.

Earlier, Vucic also noted that the country planned to purchase 30 helicopters in 2022-2023, including ten H-145 helicopters produced by the Airbus company, four Mi-35s, three Mi-17s and 11 used Mi-35s from a European Union member state.

Russia sent four Mi-35M helicopters, six MiG-29 fighter jets, three Mi-17V-5 transport helicopters, Pantsyr-S1 air defense missile systems, 30 T-72MS tanks, and 30 BRDM-2MS armored vehicles to Serbia as part of its military-technical assistance from 2018 to February 2020.
