    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Earlier in April, Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) also confirmed that it would not be participating in the airshow.

    Russia's Roscosmos state space corporation will not participate in the Farnborough Airshow set to take place in the United Kingdom in mid-July, head of the corporation’s press service Vladimir Ustimenko told Sputnik on Thursday.

    "The Roscosmos corporation will not take part in the exhibition," Ustimenko said.

    However, he did not explain the reasoning behind the corporation's decision.

    The Farnborough International Airshow has been held annually since 1948.

    In 2016 and 2017 the Russian companies presented only civilian aircraft at the airshow, due to restrictions imposed by the organizers.

    In 2014, the Russian delegation did not take part in the event because of visa problems.

    The 2018 Farnborough Airshow in the United Kingdom will be held from July 16 to July 22.
