The Russian Concern Radio-Electronic Technologies must complete import substitution of western parts for aviation in 2017, CEO of the Group Nikolai Kolesov told reporters on Wednesday.

A similar program concerning Ukrainian components for avionics and electronic warfare is to be completed in 2016.

“As far as the import substitution program on non-CIS countries is concerned, i.e. NATO and EU countries, we have protected it, the program is meant for 18 billion rubles. Basically, it is aimed at aviation, we have no questions on electronic warfare systems,” – said Kolesov.
