PARIS, April 15 (Reuters) - Russian Economy Minister Alexei Ulyukayev said on Friday that Airbus Group was interested in the privatisation of Russian Helicopters as the government looks for a strategic partner for the state-owned company.

Russia could sell a controlling stake in Russian Helicopters, Ulyukayev said following a meeting with French business leaders, including representatives of carmaker Renault and aerospace group Airbus.
