ZHUKOVSKY, the Moscow region, August 25 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian Defense Ministry has never given up plans to purchase MiG-35 aircraft. The deliveries are due to start in 2015-2016, Russian Minister of Industry and Commerce Denis Manturov told journalists on Saturday, August 24.
“The Defense Ministry has not given up plans to buy MiG-35 aircraft. The purchase will take place in parameters set by the State Arms Procurement Program,” Manturov said. He added that a relevant contract might be concluded at the MAKS-2013 air show.
