Russia still interested in exporting fighter jets to Brazil - official

Russia's Sukhoi Su-35 fighter jet did not participate in a Brazilian tender, but Russia remains interested in supplying these airplanes to Brazil.

"The tender took place, and even some results have been announced. To our regret, we are not among its participants," Alexander Fomin, director of the Russian Federal Service for Military-Technological Cooperation, told journalists.

Russia wanted to take part in this tender, which could have resulted in the subsequent production of Su-35 fighters in Brazil and a possible project to design a new-generation fighter jet, he said.

"We are still interested in it, but no concrete decisions on this matter have been made yet," Fomin said.
