The Serbian government will reportedly acquire five Mi-35PN helicopters from Greek Cyprus. Negotiations between Serbia and Greek Cyprus are ongoing to reach a final agreement on the sale. With this purchase, the Serbian Armed Forces will have a total of nine Mi-35 helicopters from the southern representative of Cyprus Island.

It was previously reported that Greek Cypriot Government wanted to sell all 11 Mi-35P attack helicopters to Serbia to replace them with 6+6 Eurocopter EC145 helicopters. The proposal involves purchasing six aircraft in the first phase and another six in the second phase over ten years. Once the sale is approved, Serbia expects to receive its first Mi-35 helicopters this year. The Greek Cypriot Air Command is the armed air wing of the Greek Cypriot National Guard.
