KUALA LUMPUR, April 20. /TASS/. Russia in 2016 will take part in the Eurosatory regular international exhibition of arms and military equipment in Paris, but will not attend the Farnborough international air show in the UK, director for international cooperation and regional policy of the Russian State Corporation Rostec Victor Kladov told reporters on Wednesday.
"We’ll participate in Eurosatory, but will not attend the Farnborough air show. Rosoboronexport (Russian arms exporter) will not be there," Kladov said at DSA 2016 (Defense Services Asia 2016) international defense show.
He said, explaining the decision, that in 2014, "a number of unfriendly steps were taken that make our participation impossible." Thus, he said, due to organizational problems the heads of Russian organizations and business leaders could not come, and there is no sense in "taking part only at the level of demonstration stands".
In addition, Kladov said, "at the Farnborough show there are limits on the display of military products. We are not happy with it, too."
