          Well, in light of recent events, you can at least freeze helicopter maintenance for an indefinite period!
          Also loudly! To their lordly (purely humiliating) - "Well, repair."
          We must also answer - "The king of the boyar did not ask!"

          most likely the calculation of "partners" is precisely what this has been done. probably think as follows: "soooo, we put them on our knees with sanctions. Now we will bend prices for repairing turntables and it's in the hat!"
          Lord, if only the concern had the budget and the will not to follow the exceptional and the “partner” “sanctions” turned out to be the last with the prefix “co”.
          and still enrages them with the naive use of a little pretext for the fight against terrorism!

            It's simple:
            - Need a service for helicopters.
            - No one can do the service except us.
            - The Americans pay. Ready to pay.
            “They cannot pay.” Sanctions do not allow.
            - Remove sanctions to pay for work.

            "bend prices for the repair of turntables and"
            The cost of maintenance work is laid down in the contract; the payment terms are not known, but in any case we will fulfill the contract - at least for advertising purposes:
            "Unauthorized русские repair their helicopters used by the Americans-Although the United States has its own helicopter models in bulk belay "...

          That's always the case. People need to earn money, "oh travel agencies will shut down people will lose their jobs", and these travel agencies only sell tours to Turkey? Are Mi-17s flying only in Afghanistan? In general, do we have other helicopters or what? You know, when the development of "Shtokman" was frozen. In Murmansk, a lot of offices were closed, including mine. People were stupidly thrown out onto the street instead of trying to find other orders. And for some reason, no one shed tears on the Internet on this occasion, but we also have families and children. Ordinary panymaesh. fellow

      - I bet a hundred against the ruble, that "immediately rush to repair." Money doesn't smell. Officials of all Russia know this like no other. I think that already now the chain "repairman - intermediary - customer" is actively being built, where there will be more intermediaries for the "extraction" of money.

        And even if they were to their allies, they would be taken to Kuev for repairs. Those will work for food.

        There, in 1993 in Ukraine, asbestos was removed from the United States liner (300 tons). Joyful received 3mln 200thousand american money. And the Indians for work two and a half times smaller (115 tons) to remove asbestos from the French aircraft carrier in the 2006-m considered that 50 million European money they didn’t do much.

        Somehow, through a stump deck, and in Dnepropetrovsk the rules would have been carried out ... There even New helicopters are developed according to American post-war drawings. So why can't Mi-17 be repaired ...

      Yes, no, they thought "Eastern European" friends would be able to help in the service staff and repair (as with the repair of the Bulgarian MiG-29 in Poland. when the head of the Center for Strategic Conditions in Bulgaria Ivan Konovalov said that if something happens after the repair with the Bulgarian MiG-29, then nobody (the Air Force representatives) will have any complaints, no one will give them guarantees. Maybe they will try to sue Poland, but it will be just ridiculous. If a broken Mercedes is taken not to an authorized dealer, but to Uncle Vasya’s service, then there will be no guarantee for work ...)
      and no double standards. just realized that without the help of Russian specialists in this case, well, nothing request

    Все "sequestered companies"- the essence of the organization, representing a real threat to the hegemon.

    Under sanctions, homosexuals always do this:

    1. We are all against, we forbid everything, we crush everyone, we are Great.
    2. But Boeing needs Russian titanium; here we do not mind.
    2. But NASA needs a space cab — we are for it.
    3. But Kalashnikov is an excellent machine gun, and RPG-7 is an excellent grenade launcher - here we will steal.
    4. Terrorists are cutting heads with an American - let the Russians deal with them.
    5. ... here is Iran, here is Syria, here is Ukraine, here ...

    It has been reliably established that homosexuals are perverts; it makes no sense to wait for something real from them.
