If you're dumb enough to invest in anything in Russia, then you deserve what you get.

I'm shocked, shocked that Fraport and Qatar gambled on this Pulkovo investment !

It’s common practice for every power to conduct trade in it’s best interest. Both the sanctions and Russia’s response are eminently predictable.

I suspected that you're a muscovite troll, "redlaser", reading your comments about the B777 hard landing in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. Now, it's confirmed. You spew a bunch of BS.

My suggestion to Redlaser - if you have such a problem with the US and you are so hopelessly ignorant and misinformed about Ukraine - why don't you spend the weekend packing your bags and move to Russia? Once there you can sign up for Russian army conscription and go to the front lines in Eastern Ukraine and hang out with thousands of hapless, de-motivated, de-moralised Russian conscripts and convicts in the "meat grinder". Sounds like you will be a great candidate and war-monger Putin will love you for it.

It’s spelled “Zionist”. Just a tip from one average American to clearly another.

Yes, much more impactful to spew conspiratorial anti-Semitic garbage with grammatically correct English. Better luck next time.

Northwestern most conterminous US state. If you thought you were referring to Washington D.C. then that's in the Northeast US, on the East side of the Potomac river across from the state of Virginia and adjacent to the state of Maryland. ...bet you didn't know that, among many other things.

Who could imagine the US seizing property from a country that it's not a war with.

Give it a rest. This is a website about commercial aviation, not the drivel you've been posting here. You seem lost.

True, it will. Zelensky wanted to negotiate early, but Biden in pocket of arms dealers, so he said no negotiate! Zelensky just punk dictator killing 100,000s of boys, men, women and babies... for what? Why? Because Biden said so? Biden is a pawn of Russia, China and the Saudis. This will never end.

“I went in yesterday and there was a television screen, and I said, ‘This is genius.’ Putin declares a big portion of the Ukraine — of Ukraine — Putin declares it as independent. Oh, that’s wonderful,”

“He used the word ‘independent’ and ‘we’re gonna go out and we’re gonna go in and we’re gonna help keep peace.’ You gotta say that’s pretty savvy.”

Eh! So a little accounting write off for some corporations, sure beats "falling" out a 5th floor window like so many ex Putin cronies have experienced.

Would it also be terrible if the U.S. took control over, say, JFK or BWI if maybe China wanted ownership?

Why would anybody have been so clueless as to put any money into Russia since Putin came to power!? This is mind boggling, to say the least. Have those people/investors learned nothing of history?

This is what the Biden Administration should do to Chinese who were allowed to buy millions of acres of farmland In Midwest USA, but he won't, because he likes their money!
