World Gas Championship 2007 in Russia

Regarding the World Gas Championship we have faced with problem of restructuring of air traffic control system from military authorities to civil one.
We have received official reply from Federal Air Transport Agency to our request:

Because of holding restructuring of Russian Air traffic control system concerned with organizing united body of air traffic control it is carrying out the work to change legislation and rules of using air space.
Thereupon it is recommended by the Russian Air-navigation Agency to Balloon Federation of Russia to postpone holding of World Gas Balloon Championship from July 2007 to later dates.

Unfortunately we could not foresee that situation before but it is what we have now. So now I by agreement with Jean-Claude Weber cancel the World Gas Championship 2007 in Russia.
Anyway I will try to host it in few years cause Russia is a vast country with lots of room to host gas events.

Best regards,
Yuri Taran
