ZHUKOVSKY (Sputnik), Alexander Mosesov — DEPICON represents and supports several European aviation companies in Eastern Europe, as well as Belgium's (UN)MANNED aviation software company.
"We will face the drone market, but it is at the beginning stage in Russia… I think in time of crisis it is always best to start. We know that it is going up and down and I think we need to be here when it is going bad," Hans Deprez said.
The large-scale aviation event was inaugurated earlier in the day in the Russian city of Zhukovsky with over 400,000 visitors expected in the course of the six-day event.
About 760 companies from 35 countries, will participate in the air show, including Russia's state technology corporation Rostec and arms exporter Rosoboronexport, as well as arms manufacturer Almaz-Antey, Russian Helicopters, and several companies from the space industry.
