«It seems a very long-term prospect of cooperation with RSC «Energy», because we do not have conflicting business interests. The fact that the joint product that we promote to the international market in cooperation with RSC «Energy» is the platform for geostationary commercial satellites of the middle class,» he said.

According to him, «in the product line of Airbus DS this product is not, as this company is engaged in manufacture of satellites of heavy class».

Cooperation of Airbus DS and of «Energy» started in the 1990-ies with the supply of equipment for the space station «Mir» and was continued in the framework of the International space station (ISS), in particular, in the framework of the project of creating a European space transport vehicle ATV.
