Gravity explains the motions of the planets, but it cannot explain who set the planets in motion.

Not surprised either. Now we watch to see if Boeing renews their bid with the early deliver slots, or if those slots are snatched up by another carrier.

I'm sure Boeing cares about SU, but I wonder if they care that much? We will find out very soon.
Failure is not an option; it's an outcome.

Russia export to the USA is $7-9 billion, to the EC $150-170 billion

I think it should play no role.

It is reported in the British Times newspaper that President Putin has ordered Aeroflot to postpone its expected widebody order.

From the article:

"Mr Putin is believed to want to use the tender as a carrot with which to entice EADS, Airbus’s parent, into its fledgeling Russian equivalent, the United Aircraft Company. UAC, which will bring together MiG, Sukhoi and the listed Irkut, needs European industrial and commercial expertise to compete on the world stage, according to analysts."
