Russia and Nigeria inked a deal that will bolster the West African nation’s resolve to defeat insurgents and bandits wreaking havoc in different parts of the country.

A senior official at Russia’s federal military-technical cooperation service told the RIA news agency that Moscow has agreed to supply 12 Mi-35 attack helicopters to Nigeria.

The contract was announced as Russia welcomed dozens of African heads of state to the southern Russian city of Sochi this week.
