Britain did not allow Russia to take part in Defense and Security Equipment International exhibition DSEI, which will be held in London. It was stated by Dmitry Shugaev, Deputy Director General on foreign economic cooperation of the state corporation Rostec on the Russian radio station "Echo of Moscow."
"English Exhibition DSEI-2015 sends a refusal. "We do not want to see you in this exhibition," Shugaev informed.
DSEI-2015 will be held in London on September 15-18. The exhibition is devoted primarily to land military equipment.
The UK has already limited the participation of Russia in such events. In the summer of 2014, it partially limited the participation of the Russian delegation at the International Air Show in Farnborough – most of the participants from Russia did not get a visa to Britain, but back then the work of the Russian delegation at the exhibition was hampered, but not prohibited.
Back then London explained its position by disagreements regarding the solution to the conflict in the Donbas.
