International Aerospace Exhibition Opens Tomorrow in Krasnoyarsk

The second international Siberian Aerospace Exhibition (SAKS-2002) opens tomorrow in Krasnoyarsk. The exhibition will run for three days. All day today aeroplanes not normally seen in Krasnoyarsk have been arriving at the city's airport. These include the AH-140 and AH-74-300 planes from the Kharkov Plane Factory, the AH-3 manufactured in Omsk for domestic airlines, together with its sister plane the Gzhel from the Nizhny Novgorod Plane Factory, and many others. Altogether around 30 planes intended for a variety of different purposes have arrived in Krasnoyarsk. All the planes will be featured in the exhibition.

The exhibition, which was first held in December 2001, has shown its high 'practical value'. This was revealed to Rosbalt's correspondent by Viktor Osipov, the head of the local branch of the inter-regional air traffic control department. He stressed that 'Siberia needs air and ground technology that is specifically designed for the kind of harsh climate found here.' Temperatures on the opening day of the exhibition will be 30 degrees below freezing. SAKS-2002 is being organised with the support of the Russian government, and Alexander Neradko, the First Deputy Transport Minister, will take part in the exhibition.

Tomorrow morning Neradko will be joined in Krasnoyarsk by Valery Voskboinikov, the deputy general director of the Russian Aerospace Agency, Craig Jones, the vice-president of Boeing, and representatives of domestic aircraft manufacturers and airlines. According to SAKS-2002's press centre, over 200 firms are taking part in this year's exhibition.

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?
