"Aeroflot board of directors does not consider an opportunity of buying foreign aircraft," said Russia's Minister of Transport, Chairman of the board of Directors of Aeroflot Sergei Frank at a press conference on Friday.

The minister supported Russian projects concerning development of advanced types of planes - TU-204 and TU-214. The state will be supporting their production by leasing programs, the minister said.

"I am totally against ultraliberal decisions on canceling planes' import fees. We must not be so careless about our aviation industry," Frank stated.

Besides, Frank believes that the measures for the Russian aviation industry protection must be balanced. Too high barriers for foreign aircraft will cost passengers their security and their money, Frank pointed.

The minister believes that excessively high fees will lower the level of competition thus giving the aviation industry no incentive for development. Frank believes it is necessary to consolidate the industry's efforts in production of certain types of aircraft, which will be able to compete not only in the domestic but also in the international market.
