"There were three crewmembers and 15 passenger overseas the Mi-8 that belonged to Utair airline", he said.

The incident occurred when a Russian-made Mi-8 aircraft knocked into the cargo of an adjacent helicopter as both were completing take-off in the Krasnoyarsk region, watchdog Rosaviatsia says.

.

The chopper was reportedly taking workers to an oil well. The helicopter flew 2 kilometre before it crashed.

Russian air safety has improved since the 1990s, when poor aircraft maintenance, pilot training and official oversight in the wake of the collapse of the Soviet Union resulted in a high crash incidence.

"The first take-off was carried out by an Mi-8 with an external cargo suspension without passengers on board", the ministry said in a statement.

Ninety-nine passengers, including nine children and two infants, as well as four crew members were on board, the airline said. The head of Mexico's civil aviation agency, Luis Gerardo Fonseca, said it could take months to know the cause of the crash.

Soon after take-off, the helicopter collided with the outside cargo that another helicopter was carrying, officials said, adding that the second helicopter landed safely after ditching its cargo. The criminal investigators of the Main Directorate of Criminalistics of Russia's Investigative Committee were sent to the scene, the committee said in a statement.
