    Russia will continue building up its unique space exploration potential and consolidate its leadership in the design and production of military aircraft, President Putin said on Tuesday.

    “To do this, we are modernizing facilities in our aircraft manufacturing and space and rocket sectors, introducing modern equipment, improving the components we use, and raising the quality and characteristics of the goods we produce," Putin said when attending Tuesday's opening of the MAKS-2015 international air show outside Moscow.

    "You will be able to look over many of the newest models our aircraft manufacturing and space sectors have to offer here at the show,” the President added.
