I've variously read that Antonov is and isn't going to be absorbed into Russia's aircraft building company, UAC. I have to say I would be surprised if it was, given Antonov's Ukranian government ownership, UAC's Russian government ownership, and the relationship between the two governments that seems to range between tepid and frosty. I can't find any reference to Antonov on UAC's composition chart:

But at the same time I notice the An-148 is listed on their page of civil aircraft. Is that simply because VASO manufactures the aircraft, or is there more to it?

What direction is Antonov heading in? Is the intention to bring production away from Russia/UAC into the Ukraine, to continue as an independent design bureau using UAC's production facilities to manufacture their product, or to be absorbed into UAC?

Well, some good questions asked.

Antonov itself is very unlikely candidate for any type of merge with UAC. Looks like "the price" fro enter the Russian market is plane production at VACO plant(s). Antonov will get the royalty payment and selll some parts. Interstingly that speaking of assembly parts Antonov-148 is more "Russian" than Kremlin's favourite SSJ...

As to where it's heading... Hm, it has gotten an unsucsessful An-140 and unknown, but hopeful An-148 in its recent design lists. Once in a while rumors about An-124 (Ruslan) or An-225 (mriya) resumed production resurrect with no official confirmation.

Ah I see - is all Antonov production in Russia, or is there production in the Ukraine as well?

Are they continuing to pursue the An-140, or is it being allowed to die a death to make way for the An-148?

Should have waited another day to reply - now seems rumour of bringing the An-70 to production can be added to the list:
