  • ANALYSIS: Ukraine's and Russia's aerospace industries will be hit hard by deteriorating relations

    News | 23 Sep 2014 10:16

    Ever since Russia-backed forces began to take control of the Crimean peninsula at the end of February, a steady of escalation of sanctions by Ukraine against Russia has had increasingly negative effects on the aerospace sectors of both countries. Since the collapse of the former Soviet Union in 1991, the two countries' industries had enjoyed an at-times contentious but largely productive collaborative relationship. The most recent round of embargoes placed on Russia by Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko, however, will cut the links and cause collateral damage on both sides.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Ukraines-and-Russias-aerospace-industries-will-be-hit-hard-by-deteriorating-relations-403480/

  • ANALYSIS: Will sanctions affect Russia's aerospace integration with the West?

    News | 08 Aug 2014 10:43 | Murdo Morrison

    ​At first glance, the Russian presence at this year’s Farnborough reflected the confidence of the country’s resurgent aerospace sector, and the value with which its key players regard the biennial air show. All the industry’s big names had sizeable chalets or stands, including United Aircraft (UAC), the holding company for most of the country’s aircraft brands, as well as Russian Helicopters and defence export agency Rosonboronexport. UAC company Irkut had its own exhibition area for a mock-up of the in-development MC-21 narrowbody, while another subsidiary, Sukhoi Civil Aircraft (SCAC), had two Superjet 100s on static display with its Italian partner Superjet International.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Will-sanctions-affect-Russias-aerospace-integration-with-the-West-402310/
