During the excursion, guests have been acquainted with the latest techniques, robotic complexes, high-precision multifunctional equipment.

The Managing Director - General Designer of UEC-Aviadvigatel, a member of the Organizing Committee of a Festival "Shield of Russia-2019", Alexander Inozemtsev participated in the official ceremony of awarding the winners. Addressing the audience, he noted that having a high-tech economy, so-called "high-tech", is a good reason to bring the patriotic education to the young generation. "Patriotism is standing not on the words, but on the real things. These journalists, who are telling the truth about a resurgent Russia and its growing technological strength, need a support either from politicians, or us, industrialists", – said Alexander Inozemtsev.
Traditionally, the special prize of UEC-Aviadvigatel is awarded for the bright and original coverage of aerospace topics. This year, the prize-holder was the State Television «Tatarstan».
