During Russian President Vladimir Putin’s visit to the UAE, he was welcomed in the most majestic way possible.
The Abu Dhabi Royal Palace was equipped with Russia-UAE flags, the entire military welcome, a smiling HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan and a lot of people that complete the ties between the two nations were also at the welcoming ceremony.
Two of these people include the great minds that work for the Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC), including the first Emirati astronaut Hazzaa AlMansoori and astronaut Sultan Al Neyadi.
The MBRSC team handed the Russian leader a special token of appreciation
The gift was a gold coined with a logo that included Baba Zayed’s ambition
The recent UAE inclusion to the International Space Station (ISS) wouldn’t have been possible without Russia’s help
Since the Soyuz rocket took off in Russia, and Hazzaa AlMansoori had departed with fellow Russian astronauts.
