Now we are actively cooperating with several international aircraft manufacturers in that direction. Therefore, if we don&#39;t replace those nodes and units manufactured by the Russian Federation, it will be impossible to assemble that aircraft without Russia," he told Ukraine&#39;s Pryamiy TV Channel on January 11. "But we are already at the final stage of replacing the aircraft&#39;s entire electronics. We hope they will be finally accepted by Antonov&#39;s engineering and design teams this year to start assembling the first aircraft that will be free from any Russian parts," Omelchenko added.
