Bypass Kiev prohibition: An-124 may turn into IL-124

In late May, Kiev took a serious step. A Kiev court seized five Ruslan aircraft owned by the Russian Volga-Dnepr airline. Aircraft were arrested, and third parties were forbidden to carry out any actions related to their landing, maintenance and departure. Given the fact that the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation is the main operator of these products under the brand of the Ukrainian Antonov, this event will have far-reaching consequences.




Ruslan, aka An-124, is a Soviet heavy transport aircraft. In total, 55 pieces were produced. Assembly was carried out simultaneously in the Russian city of Ulyanovsk and in Kiev. The entire Soviet Union and collectives of hundreds of enterprises took part in the development of a transport carrier unique for its time.

Unfortunately, after the collapse of the USSR, Antonov went to Ukraine. In fact, having killed its own aircraft manufacturing industry, Kiev parasitized all previous years, exploiting the intellectual property of the Soviet enterprise it inherited. According to experts, for every “sneeze” associated with servicing and extending the resource of products under the An brand, Russia was billed large, despite the fact that most of Ruslan was actually produced in Ulyanovsk.

Now this ugliness can be put to an end, thanks to the greed and shortsightedness of Kiev. What did Ukrainian politicians try to achieve with such a biased court decision?

First, Independent is not averse to ousting a Russian competitor from the oversized cargo transportation market, where Volga-Dnepr uses An-124.

Secondly, this is another blow to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, in which Ruslana’s fleet is widely represented. An-124 is a "heavy truck" of our military transport aircraft.

How can our country get out of the situation?

The revival of Ruslan?


The last few years there has been an active discussion about the possibility of reviving the full-fledged Ruslan production in Ulyanovsk. Officials made encouraging statements, but in the end this idea was put off the cloth. Earlier we toldthat the main stumbling block was the lack of its own turbojet engine of sufficient power. It is possible that this topic will again become relevant after the start of production of the promising PD-35 aircraft engine.

Rebirth of "Ruslan"?


If it turned out that now domestic industry is not capable of such a task, then we can go through "modernization". So German Siemens turbines became “Russian” with the help of a “file” and now work in Crimea, despite the sanctions.
Well-known expert Ruslan Gusarov explains:

If one of the Russian design bureaus, and I think it will be Ilyushin ... will make the modernization of these aircraft and certify them as a new type of aircraft, then they will legally be able to continue flights, and no decisions of the Kiev courts will be given to us.


With a flick of the wrist, the An-124 can degenerate into an Il-124, and Ukrainian partners will be able to say hello.

        Not quite so ... they acquire a lot of licenses in the "established order" ... and what they "slammed" are trying to change as much as possible. Like ... "painted in a different color" ... the steel "bottom" of the product is made of aluminum, and the aluminum one is made of steel or fiberglass .. In spite of the 300-mm "Smerch" they release their own 301-mm device ... " copy "Nokia smartphone" with one SIM card, adding a second SIM card there and "stuff like that" ...!

      Generally, it is possible to arrange the case in such a way that Antonov would prove the right to intellectual property.

      Easily.
      The design bureau OKB-153 was formed on May 31, 1946 by a resolution of the Central Committee of the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks and the Council of Ministers of the USSR at the V. P. Chkalov Novosibirsk Aviation Plant. Oleg Antonov was appointed chief designer. Immediately the Design Bureau was given the task of creating the An-2 agricultural aircraft, the first flight of which took place on August 31, 1947.
      In the summer of 1952, OKB moves to Kiev.

        And Russia, the successor to the USSR, takes and cancels the order of the summer of 1952 to move to Kiev and returns to Novosibirsk well or transfers to Ulyanovsk

    There is one more way - "Antonov" seems to have been transferred from Novosibirsk to Kiev, as well as Crimea. Economic efficiency was not visible then - after all, they knew that "banderilla" was raging there. So, in essence, "Antonov" is a daughter of the Novosibirsk aircraft plant and design bureau.

    The intellectual property of "Antonov" belongs to the USSR, since he was the client and financier of projects. And Russia is the successor to the USSR.

      The intellectual property of the USSR, unfortunately, also shared after the collapse.

    In any case, these are years and years of protracted lawsuits, and what our "non-brothers" can do to sue is evident from the not very long-standing example of Gazprom ...
    Which, by the way, inappropriately, for some reason now sees an opportunity to provide preferential terms to "neobratsy" for gas supplies.

      Also, by the way, by the way, in one of the June articles about Nezalezhnaya, it seems that Tarakanych’s report with a hedgehog, there was a photo where the sign of Sberbank shone brightly ...
      Strange too:
      As in the Crimea, you’ll tighten the SB of figs, but it turns out to be easy in the non-skiing one!

    ... and third parties are forbidden to carry out any actions related to their landing, maintenance and departure.

    Since when has the jurisdiction of Ukrainian courts extended beyond Ukraine? crying
    It’s all the same if, some American court would have banned the operation of cars of American brands in Russia. And would oblige to serve them only in American car services.

    Yes, we do not care about these "arrests". Our planes, the airline has flown and will continue to fly.

    And it will be the easiest, since IL-124. In the meantime, the courts and evidence already and the resource at the AN-124 will end. And it’s even easier for Russia, as the successor of the USSR, to cancel the decree on the transfer of the plant to Kiev and return to Russia
