    The Ukrainian government has decided to eliminate the State Aircraft Company (SAC), "Antonov". It was announced by Minister of Economic Development of Ukraine. The reason for the closure is simple: "Antonov" left their own production facilities. On behalf of the Prime Minister, the Ministry took over the formation of the liquidation committee, which will determine the fate of the remaining balance on the SJC Design Bureau, and the fate of the title - "Antonov".

    January 28, 2016: Russia has decided to abandon development of An-70, four-engine turboprop transport that began development in the 1980s in Ukraine when Ukraine was part of the Soviet Union. The An-70 is dead because of the war with Ukraine which led to Russia cancelling its 2012 order for 60 An-70s. These were to be delivered between 2014 and 2020. The canceled An-70s will be replaced by a smaller number of the new Russian Il-76MD-90 transports. Thirty of these have already been delivered and the Russians are satisfied with the latest version of the elderly Il-76. Still the Russian Air Force believes it needs at least another fifty Il-76s to replace the cancelled An-70s and rapidly aging Cold War era Il-76s.

    Russian Dividend from invading the Ukraine.
