Russian firms are prohibited to display military products in the international aerospace show Farnborough scheduled to take place early next year in Hampshire, UK, according to the show's organizers.
"At Farnborough International, we take guidance from the British Government’s Export Control Organization (ECO) regarding the EU embargo on imports of armaments and military hardware to and from Russia. We welcome all exhibitors, Russian or otherwise, that fall within these ECO guidelines," the aerospace show’s press-service has notified TASS on Tuesday.
According to Sputnik, Britain's regulator Export Control Organization (ECO), an organization that is part of the Ministry of Trade and Innovation when it comes to the EU embargo, is behind imposing the restrictions.
A European Union embargo on arms imports from Russia was imposed in 2014 in response to a pro-Russian rebellion in Ukraine. The sanctions have driven a limited regional market in locally-manufactured Russian spares to help tide central European armed forces over in an accelerated transition to Western weaponry.
However, the press service stated that the organizers are looking forward to Russian civilian equipment manufacturers participation in the airshow in 2018.
"Being a major international showcase, Russian participation is really important. At the 2016 Airshow we hosted a substantial Russian participation including Ilyushin, Irkut, Russian State Technologies Corporation, Sukhoi, Russian Helicopters, UAC and Volga-Dnepr Group as well as a dedicated Russian Pavilion in Hall 1, we are expecting similar participation in 2018," the spokesperson said.
