At the MAKS Air Show, President Vladimir Putin joked with the CEO of Rostech Technologies, Sergey Chemezov, that ‘he can afford his own ice cream’. The company is a state corporation established in late 2007 to promote development, production and export of hi-tech industrial products for civil and defense sectors.

Stealing the show this year was the MiG-35 fighter jet, a classified 4++ generation. The multifunctional fighter jet has enhanced maneuverability and is designed to overcome large-scale air defence systems. The jet will reportedly be taken into the service of the Russian armed forces in 2018.
