LONDON, July 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Most members of the Russian delegation that was expected to take part in the annual aerospace show at Farnborough have not been issued British visas, Alexei Dobrinsky, the press secretary of the Russian Embassy in London told ITAR-TASS.
The aerospace show is due to begin Monday, July 14, and end Sunday, July 20.
Under the initial plans, a total of 74 Russian organizations were to take part in this year’s Farnborough show, officials at the Federal Service for Cooperation in Defense Technologies (FSVTS) said.
A number of Russian media said somewhat earlier that the FSVTS delegation had refused to go to Farnborough.
However, the FSVTS director Alexander Fomin said July 8 the delegation did not give up participation in what is one of the world’s largest aerospace shows.
Farnborough is one of the places where the designers and manufacturers of aviation technologies proudly showcase their latest achievements in the field of civilian and military jet and helicopter engineering. In 2012, the contracts signed on the sidelines of the show covered more than 750 units of aviation technologies to the tune of around $ 72 billion.
