In the same time, government refused to buy it and will ordered An148 instead, as the latter, why officially foreign-built, has about 70% of Russian-made parts. OTOH, SSJ, "officially Russian", has "key parts foreign-made". They also ordered two more Il96-300s, as expected, which may be the last ever Il96-300 built.

Good for Sukhoi, good for Yakutia. Yakutia has developed into a nice little airline. My girlfriend flew YKT-SVO with them last year and was pleased to get a ride on one of their nice 757s. Having said that, great to see them updating the fleet with new domestic planes.
Long live Russian Aerospace!
