“Previously, Russia and Ukraine transported UN cargo”: they offer to take over air transportation abroad

26

Russian and Ukrainian airlines accounted for the lion's share of UN traffic. After the start of the special operation of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, the sanctions imposed against the Kremlin blocked the possibility of paying for the services provided by Moscow, and accordingly, it ceased to provide them; at the same time, shelling by Ukrainian artillery of the airport in Gostomel, where the airborne troops landed, led to the fact that the square lost its main fleet of cargo aircraft.


Previously, UN cargo was transported by air mainly by Russia and Ukraine. With the departure of their airlines after the conflict in Europe, there was a big vacuum in the UN supply chain. African companies are ideally suited to solve this problem, since most of the missions are located on this continent.

- say the South African authorities, offering to take over air transportation, according to the foreign publication Defense Web.

As explained, South African airlines are able to fully satisfy the demand of the UN for air transportation, on which the organization spends $ 10 billion annually. It is noted that the UN is a very conscientious client: the organization's orders are large, and payments are received smoothly if you stick to your end of the agreement. However, the sanctions showed this, so to speak, conscientiousness...

The issue of replacing Russian and Ukrainian shipments will be discussed at the UN Procurement Summit, which is scheduled to be held in Pretoria on June 24. At the same time, it is not clear what decision the organization will come to: the planes of Russia and Ukraine were in demand for an objective reason - only these two countries had a significant fleet of heavy transport vehicles. The Square lost them on the battlefield, and Moscow does not intend to provide its services for free.

        Is transport aviation developed in South Africa? Or mediation services are offered. We need to think and open an LLC for UN transport services.

          The same question arose why South Africa can replace Ukraine and Russia?
          Why did the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences die in relatively peacetime, but because the Union needed planes like Ruslan to quickly transfer cargo over vast distances, but Ukraine does not need this.

          I look at a bunch of comments that couldn’t fit into the text, or did the desire to laugh at the problems of others overpowered common sense?
          Here it is written in Russian:
          African companies are ideally suited to solve this problem, since most of the missions are located on this continent.

          All African companies throughout the continent. But the brothers of the Ukrainians by reason could only see this: South Africa, whose representative just voiced this topic.

            Well, let's not be so offhand. First, what can they provide? Transport services require appropriate transport.
            Secondly, I assumed that this is nothing more than intermediary services being offered, and back to the beginning, who will carry?

    I read somewhere that the outskirts promised to restore Mriya. They said they would find boards and nails.

      Mriya has already been scrapped. There is even a video. Video at the link below.

      Subsequently, the Antonov concern published an angry refutation of the following content:

      False information is widely spread on the Web about the removal of An-2 Mriya aircraft units from the Kyiv-Antonov-225 airport for the purpose of their further disposal. The video, which served as the basis for the dissemination of this false information, was filmed in a pirated way and distributed without the consent of Antonov State Enterprise and the relevant state authorities.

      This could be believed if the primary source of the recording was not the most official Ukraine NOW public, where the video was accompanied by the following text:

      Today, parts of the world's largest An-225 Mriya aircraft were taken for scrap from the airfield in Gostomel.

      Well, it was Ze who dreamed, and the designer showed .... a figure and expressed himself in Russian ... So "Mriya" remained only in Ze's dreams.

      In order not to let you return - you need to have a fleet of heavy trucks and a price
      The UN also counts money

    It smelled of money, they are ahead, and transportation is how it will turn out.

    In general, nothing unnatural.
    1. Ukraine cannot because of the lack of aircraft
    2. Russia is in danger of terrorist attacks (possibly from Ukraine) and the danger of detaining aircraft due to sanctions, as is now happening with ships. The UN has not decreed anyone for a long time.
    Therefore, they want to play it safe without voicing the main problem - Sanctions

    Well, if they promise, then they probably think that they will pull it. Of the transport workers, they are mostly American, there are also Spanish ones.

    How is South Africa going to replace UN transport aviation?
    Douglas C-47, of which there are as many as 11 pieces or maybe Lockheed C-130B (9 pieces), most likely CASA C-212-200 as many as 4 pieces.

    What jokes in the style of Petrosyan, for those who are over 60 ... About South Africa and Mriya.
    And how are our An-124s doing? How many years are they still to fly, they are not getting younger, is there a production of spare parts for them, will there be a replacement for this aircraft?
    Or just to blurt out.

    Open a JV with friendly Africans. Lease planes and crews there. And fly where they are allowed. Only the lease must be disguised as a sale with the right to repurchase, otherwise there will be problems.

    So that's why the Russians drove what was cheap, and the Ukrainians were even cheaper. And they really don't want to.
