I'm curious as to why there haven't been any Tupolev aircraft sold to any of the major airlines in both Europe and the Americas. I remember reading somewhere that Tupolev tried to entice the major carriers to buy their products by installing Rolls Royce engines. The TU-204 would seem like a very competitive aircraft. Similar to the 757, I believe.

Tupolev TU-204

Im guessing it would be similar to the problems faced by Sukhoi and the superjet. Russian Politics ?

Absolutely. The TU-204 is the Russian 757, some people call it the "757ski".
I believe that TNT flies the TU-204.
