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.
 
In the end, it seems like business as usual continues for now. But the roots of change are being laid and the future could be far different. Listen in to hear our take.
