MOSCOW, February 16. /TASS/. Great Britain has denied Russia participation in the DSEI exhibition of defence and security equipment in London, Rostec said on Monday.
"Britain’s DSEI-2015 exhibition has sent a refusal - ‘we don’t want to see you here,’" Dmitry Shugayev, deputy director general for foreign economic cooperation of Russia’s state corporation Rostec, told the Ekho Moskvy radio station.
Last summer, more than half of Russian participants who had applied for taking part in the Farnborough International Airshow were denied British entry visas. The activity of the Russian delegation was complicated but not paralyzed.
The DSEI-2015 Defence and Security Equipment International expo will be held in London on September 15 through 18.
