Text size Aa Aa

Russia has announced it is to go into partnership with China in the joint-production of a long haul aircraft as a result of sanctions over the Ukraine crisis.

Moscow now looks set to double production of the Sukhoi Superjet passenger plane.

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said that his country must increase its domestic aircraft production and aircraft part manufacture.

He also said the country could close its airspace in response to new Western sanctions against Moscow in the energy or finance sector.
