The United States admitted that sanctions will not interfere with the triumph of the MS-21 airliner


The Russians expect to start mass production of the first post-Soviet medium-haul liner MS-21 in 2022. They had to delay the implementation of the project for 1,5 years due to US restrictions, writes the American agency Bloomberg.


We had to create our own production. We developed the material and made our wing from it

- said the general director of the state corporation Rostec Sergei Chemezov in an interview taken during IDEX 2021 in the UAE.

Until 2018, composite materials were supplied to Rostec's subsidiary by companies from the United States. But Washington imposed sanctions against this enterprise and put Chemezov on the "black list" as working in the KGB in the GDR along with Vladimir Putin. However, the restrictions did not affect the relationship between the American company Boeing and the Russian titanium producer VSMPO-Avisma (25% of the shares belong to Rostec).

Chemezov believes that the Joe Biden administration shows no intentions to weaken the anti-Russian sanctions policies, but this will not interfere with the real triumph of the MS-21 liner. It is difficult to disagree with this opinion, the American press notes. In December 2020, the airliner took to the skies on Russian PD-14 aircraft engines. Now MS-21 with domestic power units is undergoing certification tests.

The MS-21 family of aircraft, which includes two models (MS-21-200 and MS-21-300), is being developed by the same subsidiary of Rostec, which runs the program of the Sukhoi Superjet regional aircraft - United Aircraft Corporation PJSC. MS-21-200 is designed for 132-165 passengers, and MS-21-300 accommodates 163-211. The liners are capable of flying 6400 km and 6000 km, respectively. The MS-21 project should become a competitive response of Russians to the European A320neo from Airbus and the American 737 Max from Boeing.

Chemezov added that the state corporation wants to increase the share of civilian products from 33% to 50% by 2030. Therefore, Rostec is increasing production in different areas, summed up the media from the United States.

    The United States admitted that sanctions will not interfere with the triumph of the MS-21 airliner

    Stupid headline! What kind of abstraction is it recognized in the USA? What is a triumph? Is this 1 liner sold, 2, 1000?
    We have already seen the triumph of the superjet from the dry one ...

    Here our main thing is not to stop, the super-jet of course hung for a long time and this rake was predictable. You can only rely on your own strength, foreign countries will only help us to play in a box in any area.

    .
    What, in Bloomberg, they just wrote about the “triumph?” That is, not a single plane has been released yet and is already a triumph? It seems to me that the author is a little of that ... Well, he lied, that is. I seem to have a good idea in English, I would understand what exactly is written.

      The triumph here is the creation of the aircraft despite the obstacles created at the behest of the United States. Remained ignorant, to complete the formalities and start production.

    Triumph, in this case it is:

    They kill us, but we survive and again we throw ourselves into the attack.

    Well, when many will fly on it, then there will be great sorrow - for the foreign agents ...

        Dream about the revival of "Antonov".
        It is good for you.
        When you wake up from a liberal intoxication, you have to try to bring this and much more to life.
        And again you have to understand - "son," lyakham "don't give a damn about you"

          Yes, "liberal frenzy" is better than rotting. And "Antonov" has been buried, buried, but still not buried for many years already. And we ourselves have been freezing for the seventh year already, and we are starving to death, but something is still not possible. ...

            How many planes has the outskirts built, or at least repaired? You can for all the time of your non-statehood.
            In numbers!
            And at the expense of your "death-freezing" - so in some kind of Zimbabwe, people also live, and will live for a long time.
            In principle, we don’t care about that in Russia.
            It was you who came to the Russian site to prove something, not us to the suburb.
            We have no need to prove something to someone.

            You say you are not bent? It's like smut. Gas will be cut off for you anyway, regardless of SP-2. Ugolёk, however, is also yok. What will you pay back to the IMF? The industry is about ..., the army and the navy were destroyed. You live on the handouts of Europe, you are ruled by America. If this is not a bend, then Maly Ustyug is the capital of the world.

            How many U. pros..a, uncountable. And because a lot of things got for free, Muscovites will do more. And living on your own is not very successful. Yes, plus the West throws. ,, Well, son, your Poles helped you! ,,
