Poles commented on the appearance of the Russian An-124 in Warsaw

Russia and China continue to assist Europe in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic, but this continues to cause controversy.

According to the Polish edition of Defense24, the Russian transport aircraft An-124 Ruslan landed in Warsaw with a load of Chinese medical care. On board, 7 million medical masks and 70 protective suits for doctors were transported to Poland at one time.

A transport plane took off from Shanghai with an intermediate stop in Ulan-Ude. The publication explained the choice in favor of the Russian aircraft with its large carrying capacity. An-124 belongs to the Volga-Dnepr company and was chartered by the Polish side. On April 14, there is yet another flight that will be completed by the world's largest aircraft, the An-225 Mriya, capable of transporting more than 170 tons at a time.

The use of these two transporters under the Ukrainian brand gave rise to a discussion among Polish readers about whose An-124 aircraft they are, in fact, Ukrainian, Russian or Soviet.

Antonov - Ukrainian company

- The user writes Pawel.

Rather, it is a Soviet plane. And now Ukrainian. Not Russian

Echoes the nameless reader.

Volga-Dnepr is a Russian airline, so this is a Russian plane

- objected to him user Daniel.

Antonov was founded in Novosibirsk in 1946, in 1952 the company was moved to Kiev. Its founder - Oleg Antonov was an ethnic Russian, originally from the Moscow region.

- the author of the note wedged into the dialogue.

The Ukrainians created the design of the aircraft and built them, but the Russians also assemble them at Aviastar (Aviastar-SP - aircraft factory in Ulyanovsk - ed.)

- summed up the reader with the nickname Davien.

It is noteworthy that no negative comments were sent to Russia from the Poles. Still: the Russian plane brought much-needed medical care, it’s stupid to bite the hand of the giver. Leave Russophobia until better times ...

    If the Ukrainians created the design of the aircraft, then he would have a mustache and forelock ...

    It’s interesting, do the officials own the Mercedes cars themselves, or Germany, as the country of origin?

    Good AN planes. It is a pity that the Communists sent a plant from Novosibirsk to Ukraine, where he bent.

    .... stupid to bite the hand of the giver.

    To be precise, it’s stupid to bite the carrier.
    And the Chinese gave it. It’s just dangerous to bite them.

    Poor Poles. Well, it’s necessary how their self-awareness is outweighed, if they so perceive the very fact of help from Russia. One would like to say - SOVIET PLANE !!

      .... in Warsaw, the Russian transport aircraft An-124 Ruslan landed with cargo of Chinese medical care.

      For many here, the understanding of what is written is completely "twisted". And nothing, they live somehow.

      And he is Soviet, in the truest sense of the word. All aircraft manufacturing enterprises and design bureaus of the Soviet Union were involved in its creation, and it is at least absolutely stupid and unreasonable to claim now that this aircraft was created in Ukraine. What Antonov was able to create after the collapse of the USSR (not in pictures, but in metal and serially) - NOTHING. (An-148, An-158 do not count, this is an aircraft jointly produced with Russia and now it is not produced without our components !!!)

      There was no Ukraine at that time, but the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic was part of the USSR. Educational program for stupid ukronationalists. And the An-124 Ruslan planes were built at the Ulyanovsk Aviastar plant more than at the Kiev Aviant plant, you, apparently, do not know either !!! You don't know anything about the creation of these planes either. Half of all systems for them were designed and created not by Antonov, but by other related suppliers. "Antonov" was only the ultimate aggregator, which united all these systems into a single whole. Now nothing like An-124 Ruslan, or An-225 Mriya "Antonov" to create and even more so to build is not able to !!!

      What else can Ukrainians do?
      30 years of Ukraine's "independence" have proved that Ukrainians can only destroy, not create.

      You probably wanted to say that this is Ukrainian masochism. All that you in Ukraine inherited from the USSR-you all collapsed, but did not create anything of your own.

    Antonov belongs to the USSR! Thousands of aircraft parts were produced throughout the Soviet Union. It just so happened that in Ukraine they collected these planes and moved the design bureau there.
