Russian President Vladimir Putin retains Zhukovsky as MAKS venue

October 6, 2017

On September 28, Russian President Vladimir Putin backed the recommendation of the Military-Industrial Commission of the Russian Federation to keep holding International Aviation and Space Salons MAKS in the city of Zhukovsky, the Moscow Region, reports the Kommersant newspaper.

The report by the Military-Industrial Commission argues that Zhukovsky venue provides the necessary airfield, exhibition, transport and other infrastructure, as MAKS is not funded from the federal budget, while creating the necessary infrastructure on the airbase of Kubinka will require significant budgetary and extrabudgetary expenditures.

The report also states that “MAKS has been successfully integrated into the schedule of international air shows, meeting world standards as one of the global leaders, in terms of the number of participants.”

According to the publication, Rostec State Corporation, sponsoring MAKS airshows along with the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, is ready to continue holding the event in Zhukovsky.
