Ulan-Ude Helicopter Plant is a traditional rival of Kazan Helicopter Plant on the foreign market. In addition to helicopter products, UUAZ has also manufactured such combat aircraft as Su-25UB and Su-39. However, it would be incorrect to pin hopes on the fact that UUAZ will continue producing these planes after the new Yak-130 operational trainer appears. Since the state represented by Oboronprom owned a 63% stake in UUAZ, the state mediator in the area of military hardware trade Rosoboronexport will prefer UUAZ to KVZ when placing orders. According to expert opinion, UUAZ products are of higher quality than those manufactured by KVZ. Weaknesses include a limited aircraft range. UUAZ manufactures Mi-8 helicopters and their upgraded version Mi-171 which is one of the most widely used helicopter models. However, both of them are becoming obsolete and one cannot speak of prospects for these models.

The Republic of Buryatia, which is located in the Asian part of Russia not far from Lake Baikal, is a rarely visited Russian territory west of the Russian Far East. Abundant in natural resources but remote and dependent on federal subsidies, Buryatia is undergoing a difficult economic and social transition. Buryatia is one of the so-called "red" Republics. The government is garden-variety authoritarian, seeking to control leading industries. The 135,000 square kilometer Republic of Buryatia (Buryatia) is in southeastern Siberia --- east of Lake Baikal, north of Mongolia, and south of the Sakha Republic. Buryatia and its eastern neighbor Chita make up the Transbaikal Region. Buryatia is a mountainous territory covered with coniferous forests. Its Barguzin valley has favorable conditions for growing crops. Ulan-Ude, the capital of the Republic, was founded in 1666 and has a population of 380,000. The city has little crime and fairly good municipal infrastructure.
