Deliveries of Russian Su-35 to Indonesia Might Fall Under US Sanctions
The time frames for the deliveries of Russian Su-35 multi-role fighter jets to Indonesia under a bilateral contract are affected by the restrictions that the United States is ready to introduce as part of its anti-Russia sanctions, as the Kommersant newspaper reported on Friday.
Moreover, the parties planned to use a loan from a Russian commercial bank as part of the contract. However, no banks were willing to engage in the deal since they might face US sanctions over cooperation with Russian military exporter Rosoboronexport, the outlet added.
"The situation is unpleasant but it is not critical. We maintain constant contacts with our Indonesian partners, we are looking for ways out of the situation," one of the newspaper’s interlocutors said.
