Moscow Domodedovo to stay in Russian hands

Russia’s Prosecutor General Office stated that allowing Moscow Domodedovo International Airport to be owned or operated by foreign companies is “unacceptable” and would pose a threat to national security (The Voice of Russia/RIA Novosti, Apr 30, 2011). The Office said that the airport is a strategic national asset and if it were to be owned by foreign interests, the “real owners and those who take management decisions are unaccountable, they are not under the Russian jurisdiction and do not comply with the federal legislation”.
