Russian MFA Spokesperson on UK visa delays to Russian Farnborough 2012 team

Q.: There have been media reports of UK visa delays to Russianparticipants of the Farnborough International-2012 aerospace exhibition. How would you comment that?

A.: Indeed, in spite of having filed their applications in time, a number of Russian visitors planning to take part in Farnborough-2012 starting on 9 July have still have not received their UK visas.

Unfortunately, this is not the first case when red tape puts a real obstacle to Russia’s participation in an international event. We stay in close contact with the British side both in Moscow and in London and hope that Russian participants of the aerospace exhibition will eventually get their visas.
