MI-17 Transport Helicopter Crashes In Mexico with Six Dead

Authorities in Mexico have confirmed that six people died when a military helicopter that was helping fight forest fires crashed in the north-central state of Queretaro.The Russian-made MI-17 transport helicopter was carrying water to firefighters when it went down Friday in the pine-covered mountains known as the Sierra Gorda. The crash occurred near the township of Jalpan de la Sierra, located on a high mountain range that drops abruptly onto Mexico’s Gulf coast plain.The National Forests Commission said Saturday that one of its workers died in the crash, raising the death toll to six. Five Navy crew members also died.

This is the video of the overloaded Peruvian crash not the Mexican one. Mexican Navy Mils are Grey. Two fatal Mil crashes within a couple of days.

Yes, that's what I thought. Not sure why the OP has stated it's Russian made - they all are!
