MOSCOW, August 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin has ordered the Transport, Finance and Industry and Trade ministries to develop suggestions to prevent weakening of the country’s airlines’ market position after Western sanctions imposed on low cost company Dobrolyot by September 1, as seen by PRIME in Rogozin’s order on Tuesday.

“Given the sanctions aimed at stopping the exploitation of Boeing aircrafts in Russia, (I am ordering) to present suggestions on preventing weakening of the Russian airlines’ position on the air transportation market and decreasing their critical dependency on foreign equipment and services jointly with Aeroflot and United Aircraft Corporation,” Rogozin ordered.

He also ordered corresponding departments to provide the government with information on the terms and cost of providing Russian airlines with domestically produced aircraft.

The ministries did not comment on the matter, while one ministry source confirmed receiving the order.

Dobrolyot suspended all its flights from August 4 in the wake of EU sanctions which prompted several European counteragents to annul leasing, maintenance and insurance contracts, as well as denied the airline navigation information.
