Not the best year for russian aviation
Yes, it's designated by Russia as an aircraft for Open Skies missions, but that doesn't mean that it has been approved by the other OS signatory nations for that purpose.

No more words on that issue in media. Anyway, here are some interesting pictures ... follow the
