Check 6 Podcast: The Problem of Russia

RSS
What do the initial sanctions by the West on Russian and Ukrainian provocateurs of the former’s invasion of the latter’s Crimean region mean for Western A&D? Reaction so far has been mild, but that could change.
 
The March 31 edition of Aviation Week & Space Technology has several articles examining the effects of the sanctions, which represent the first major contretemps affecting western and Russian A&D businesses since the West entered Russian circles after the Cold War. In the latest Check 6 podcast, we’ve gathered together the senior editors working on related stories ranging from in orbit to under the ground.
 
Led by Executive Editor Jim Asker, Check 6 this week investigates several issues ranging from the International Space Station to titanium supplies for commercial airliners to U.S.-purchased Russian Mi-17s for Afghan forces, featuring Senior Space Editor Frank Morring, Senior International Defense Editor Bill Sweetman and me.
