Russia is stealing commercial aircraft

The Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority has provisionally suspended the certificates of airworthiness of all aircraft operated by Russian airlines on the Bermudan registry. The suspension affects roughly 700 aircraft, including nearly 600 operated for Russiaís largest passenger airlines. Irish authorities have also suspended the certificates of airworthiness for Russian operated aircraft on the Irish registry.

A majority of aircraft operated by Russian commercial airlines are leased, not owned by the airlines. Often as part of that lease, the aircraft are placed on the Bermudan registry as part of the International Civil Aviation Organizationís Article 83bis delegation agreements. An 83bis agreement between Russia and Bermuda means that Bermudan authorities assume responsibility for ensuring operations, maintenance, and continuing airworthiness.

On 14 March, Russia passed a law allowing foreign-registered aircraft owned by non-Russian lessors to be placed on the Russian registry. The new law increases the likelihood that few aircraft owned by foreign lessors will be recovered.

Aircraft kept by Russian airlines in the face of lease cancellation and the suspension of their certificates of airworthiness are being re-registered on the Russian civil aircraft registry. The new registrations begin with RA-. Some aircraft have been stored outside of Russia by airlines or lessors. Those locations are noted in the new registrations column.

1. With China refusing to sell parts for maintenance and repair, these aircraft will soon be flying

Death traps or grounded hunks of worthless metal.

3. They are stealing lives of innocent people and an entire nation.

Taking the airplanes is small potatoes in comparison. Ask yourself who can afford the loss with less pain and suffering. Aircraft owners and investors or the people of Ukraine?

So the point of the story is, "You can't trust Russians." Ok, point taken.

4. The point of the story is: "here's something that's happening in the news"

Am I to understand that we can only discuss what Russia does to the Ukrainian people?

6. I think a story about Russia stealing over $60 billion worth of airplanes is worth posting

YMMV
And that's the low end figure on worth.
The average passenger airliner costs between $82 and $230 million X 700

7. This is a necessary result of the sanctions and kicking RU off the SWIFT system

Biden and other NATO leaders realized this was going to happen as soon as they instituted the sanctions. Actually it's one of the reasons why Joe Biden held off calling sanctions against Russia, because he realized American manufacturers were going to get stiffed.

We need to understand that the leaders KNEW this was going to happen, but they enacted the sanctions anyway. I guess this is one of the risks of doing business with despotic warmonger nations.
