Roman, I find it very hard to come up with a scenario where we would pull the plug on your airlines that doesn't involve much worse consequences on both sides.

Again, see Iran living under sanctions; see Mistralsky deal; see Crimea turbines and so on. It is obviously unwise for Russia to rely on any Western-controlled service. Luckily our Gov was  finally forced into at least some activity beyond investing in US treasuries and traveling European capitals (on state expense, of course)  in search of another ways to pay Russian money to Western companies (and getting nice kickbacks for that) - as result now we got more or less functioning localized plastic card payment system, local version of SWIFT, some local production facilities and so on. Still too little, too late.

P.S. Fresh illustration of aircraft problems: serial production of MS-21 postponed till the end of 2020 due to foreign sanctions, as some managerial genius in Russian aircraft industry decided to use US&Japan composite materials components in its wings, not Russian analogues. Now, surprise, foreign components are not available and the wing to be re-tested with Russian ones....

The PW1400G is derived from the PW1100G-JM which is 23% Japanese (pg 88 and 89). German share of both the PW1100G-JM and the PW1400G is 18% according to their website. The reminder is American.

Luckily Russian-made PD-14 is main engine for this plane https://en.wikipedia...advigatel_PD-14

Ah, fair enough, that one hasn't come up. Looks like they went along and developed the PW1400G anyway, as an alternative option I guess, even after PD-14 was selected for use.

I'm still having real problems seeing what we would gain by inhibiting your civil aviation in any way. All we would do is hurt ourselves. For example:

 

The revocation of the U.S. licenses scuttled more than $40 billion in planned deals to secure more than 200 new planes from Boeing Co. and Airbus SE for Iranian carriers. European plane deals have also been hit because they rely on U.S. parts. Airbus delivered only three planes to Iran Air. Boeing delivered none.

I think idea is the same as in case of Iran: denying access to modern planes is slowing down country's development. Not sure it is really working, but as we see in Iran's example US&Co are willing to take significant economic  pain  to harm Iran this way.

I understand the Russian military's concerns but I think this law goes somewhat too far.  Not shouting or protesting, just one man's opinion:

 

 

Selfies and security: Russia moves to ban certain millennial behavior in the military

 

MOSCOW — The Russian parliament has approved a second draft of a bill to ban service members from carrying certain electronic devices and sharing information about their units, movements and activities with journalists or in posts on social media.

 

 

Not too far as for me

Now Rus law passed and active.

Im not sure this is quite the right place to put it, but it ticks all the boxes of conspiracy theory,Russian Bots, misinformation, 4chan and eventually, mad people turning up with guns. Enjoy.

October 30, 2106. Washington, D.C. During the 2016 Presidential election campaign in the USA, a conspiracy began to be posted about on message boards, facebook, and twitter. It apparently began after WikiLeaks made John Podesta's personal emails public. Hillary Clinton's campaign manager didn't have anything obvious in those emails that spelled out a conspiracy in government involving a "child sex ring" but believers in the conspiracy pointed to what they say were coded messages. At the center of this was a Washington D.C. restaurant named Comet Ping Pong. It was rumored that children were being held there. The pizza place's social media accounts were scoured and more 'evidence' of secret activities were unearthed. One man, a father of two, decided to take matters into his own hands and drove to the restaurant armed with various weapons, including an AR-15 rifle. So, was there a conspiracy involving pedophiles in government? Or was there something else at work behind the conspiracy known as Pizzagate?
