The Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services, Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, who is currently visiting Russia at the invitation of the Defence Minister of the Russian Federation, Army General Sergey Kuzhugetovich Shouigu, went to the Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant on the evening of 20 April.
After observing the production of helicopters at the plant, the Senior General and his entourage flew over Ulan-Ude on a Mi 171 manufactured at the plant and enjoyed the view, according to the Office of the Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services.
Afterwards, the military delegation from Myanmar visited training halls at the plant.
The delegation, led by Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, also attended a working dinner hosted by the Chief Minister of Burya Tiya, Mr. Aleksey Sambuevich.
Burya Tiya, a republic in the Russian Federation, has plants which produce airplanes and helicopters.
About 30 per cent of its 980,000 population follows Buddhism.
The delegation left Ulan-Ude by high-speed train for Irkutsk yesterday morning and enjoyed the scenery around Lake Baikal.
Lake Baikal is the largest freshwater lake by volume in the world, containing 22–23 per cent of the world’s fresh surface water.
The lake is located between Burya Tiya and Irkutsk.
With 23,615.39 km3 of fresh water, and with a maximum depth of 1,642 m, Baikal is the world’s deepest and largest lake.
In the winter, the lake surface is covered in ice. On average, the ice reaches a thickness of about 3 metres, according to news released by the Office of the Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services.—MNA(Translated by Zaw Htet Oo)
