2. This is something

that will increasingly become a serious problem for Russian aviation in general.
Flow of most parts have stopped, and much of their aviation equipment was leased, and they confiscated a lot of it, pissing off a lot of people around the globe. Even their own Russian built aircraft are littered with imported parts, engines, electronics, and they currently don't have any way to fill in those voids. Maint. checks and all similar scheduled procedures will become increasingly difficult, and eventually impossible to perform, leaving them with airplanes that cannot fly in the near future.
The question is will they keep flying them in a poorly maintained condition.
I know they are trying to ramp up production of their own equipment using Russian engines, etc, but even the avionics and parts for all of that are currently almost all imported there.
The aviation industry there is already in trouble, and it's going to get very bad in the near future.

3. I hope this will bring an end a lot sooner than later.

The Russians are destroying residential areas. Do his citizens realize this yet?

4. I dislike sites like your link leads to

I'll never agree to all their terms of knowing everything about me so I can read one article.

6. I'm sorry?

It's just a news link. Didn't ask for anything.

Perhaps you need to use a VPN??

8. You can say no, and still read the content.

Sites in Europe ask permission before they install cookies or collect information about you. You have the option to say no and can still read the site.

Sites in the US just do all of those things without asking. Do you think that's better?
