He made it note the Russian newspaper "Vedomosti", specifying that these accounts were opened by aeroflot, Pobeda, Rossiya, S7 Airlines, Smartavia, Yakutia, Alrosa, Yamal, Polar Airlines and Aurora, while five other domestic air carriers - Ural Airlines, Izhavia, Nordstar, Rusline and I-Fly - they would be to do in an attempt to avoid the effects of the sanctions imposed from Western nations that include a ban on supply of aircraft and spare parts to Russian airlines.

"Vedomosti" recalls that leasing companies foreigners were supposed to take back the aircraft chartered to the Russian companies by March 28, but the Russian authorities have established that the return of aircraft could be decided only by the government commission on the replacement of imports.
