MOSCOW, June 17. /TASS/. China is ready to supply components for aircraft to Russian airlines, Chinese Ambassador to Moscow Zhang Hanhui told TASS.
"We are ready to supply components to Russia, we are organizing such cooperation," he said. "[Airlines] are currently addressing [it], they have certain channels, there are no restrictions from the Chinese side," the diplomat added.
On February 26, the European Union prohibited sale and supply, including leasing, of aircraft and components to it for Russian air carriers, as well as provision of any insurance and reinsurance services to its aircraft, as well as repairs, over the situation in Ukraine. The Russian authorities responded by taking a number actions, particularly allowing local carriers to continue exploiting aircraft leased or rented from foreign companies.
