"The airplane An-178 is represented on the advanced technologies exhibition in Stambul, which we have got an honor to visit.

I hope, the Turkish side will pay attention to our plane," the press service cited Avakov.
In turn, the Head of the MIA of Turkey commended An-178 and expressed his interest in this airplane.
