“ There are [plans to buy out Airbus]. This deal is currently under consideration. The United States allowed us to buy 19 aircraft and the European Union. [We plan to request funds from the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation], these will be some kind of credit resources of the Russian Federation for many years ,” he added.
