“Amid the present Ukraine crisis, An-70 project has no future at all,” the source said.
The Russian United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) has confirmed serious difficulties with the project.
Last year, Commander of the Russian air forces Viktor Bondarev said the ministry would make a decision on further use of An-70 after successful tests. In the event of a positive decision, the ministry would take into account production of the Russian aircraft Il-476, the general then said.
An-70 is the medium-haul cargo new generation aircraft planned to replace the outmoded and technically obsolete An-12. In 2012, Russia and Ukraine agreed a manufacturing cooperation plan and completed modernization of An-70 electronic equipment. The countries also considered joint manufacturing of the regional aircraft of An-148/An-158 family.
