Russia intends to actively develop its own aircraft industry and from 2019 to proceed to the abolition of privileges to foreign aircraft manufacturers, said Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin in the program “Sunday evening with Vladimir Solovyov” on TV channel “Russia 1”.

The Soviet Union produced 75 aircraft — we will be releasing 110. This is the first. Second. We’ll cancel benefits that are now granted to foreign aircraft manufacturers. Already, consider, 2019. Our first aircraft, we hope, will go in the series. Is the MS-21,” — said Rogozin, adding that the aircraft MS-21 will be cheaper than their foreign counterparts by about 20%.
