Pentagon broke all contracts with Russian airline Volga-Dnepr, turning to Ukraine’s Antonov


The decision was explained that the company’s goes against American interests, supports anti-American regime, and distributes weapons.

It was confirmed by information about delivery of two fighters Su-30MK2 to Vietnam by Volga-Dnepr for Rosoboronexport in December 2014.

As it became known, because of losing these contracts, the company will lose one of the most promising and profitable destinations: Afghanistan and Iraq, which might lead to the workload shrink from the current 45% for the period from January to September 2016 to catastrophic 20%–30%.

According to U.S. media reports, all of the contracts between the Pentagon and Volga-Dnepr will be transferred to Ukrainian company “Antonov”, which also owns aircraft “Ruslan“.

Until the last moment, 10 airplanes AN-124 “Ruslan” owned by “Volga-Dnepr” carried out regular flights to Afghanistan and Iran in the framework of the contract with the Pentagon and its subsidiaries.
