    Russia's Ilyushin Aviation Complex (Ilyushin) delivered eight Il-76 aircraft to an Asian country that cannot be named under the terms of the bilateral agreements in 2015, Ilyushin's first deputy general director said Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Ilyushin is a part of Russia's United Aircraft Corporation. Ilyushin specializes in manufacturing passenger, military and civil transport aircraft as well as special-purpose aircraft.

    "In 2015, we delivered eight Il-76 aircraft to one of the Asian countries. Unfortunately I cannot name the state — we are bound by the formal relations. The contract is almost fulfilled, there are only two aircraft left to be supplied," Yury Yudin told reporters.

    Yury Yudin said that negotiations with the same Asian country about the delivery of five more Il-76 aircraft were in progress.
