Virgin coming to Russia

British entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson says his Virgin group is making plans for Russia and they are on the way.

Speaking at the Russian Forum in Moscow, the billionaire said Russia would soon be serviced by Virgin airlines, with Virgin Radio also looking to commence operations in the country.

“Our first project into Russia is likely to be an airline. We are also talking about setting up a radio station in Russia, Virgin radio. We have a lot of experience in creating the best quality airlines in the world. We believe that if we can create a best quality airline in Russia, there will be a market for the best quality airlines. All  our airlines have been very successful outside Russia and we think that now it is the time for Virgin to come to Russia,” said Richard Branson.
