MOSCOW, May 25. /TASS/. Russia’s State Space Corporation Roscosmos will not put on display its exhibits at this year's airshow in Farnborough (UK), but the corporation’s delegation will take part in the exhibition, Roscosmos spokesman Igor Burenkov told TASS on Wednesday.
The Farnborough International Air Show 2016 will take place in the UK from July 11 to 15. The Izvestia newspaper reported previously that Roscosmos would not participate in the exhibition this year because it saw "no need" in participating.
"A decision has been made this year not to exhibit at the Farnborough airshow, first, because our funds for exhibition purposes are limited and, second, because we would like the hosts of shows like that to be friendlier to the attendees," Burenkov said.
"Our delegation will go to the airshow, and foreign colleagues will have an opportunity to talk with our experts," he added.
At the same time, according to Burenkov, Roscosmos will certainly participate in another international show, ILA 2016, in Berlin from June 1 to 4. Both its delegation and exhibitors will be there.
"We continue to cooperate closely with our foreign partners, maintaining reliable close cooperation that we intend to uphold and preserving good, productive relations. We see them reciprocate," Burenkov added.
The previous airshow in Farnborough took place in 2014. More than half of the members of the Russian delegation were denied visas by British authorities. In 2015, the UK denied Russian companies access to the DSEI 2015 arms show, citing its sanctions on Russia and its restrictions on military-technical cooperation with it.
According to the organizers, taking place just once every 2 years, the Farnborough International Airshow is one of the most iconic events in Hampshire, if not the world. Held at the historical Farnborough Aerodrome in Hampshire - the birthplace of British aviation, the show features a jam-packed flying display both on the ground and in the air, as well as a multitude of entertainment features.
