According to the sources of the publication, Isaikin, against whom Britain imposed sanctions, decided to “completely break ties” with Volga-Dnepr.

It is noted that a representative of the Volga-Dnepr group of companies confirmed that Isaikin decided to withdraw from the company's shareholders and transfer control to management.

Sources of the newspaper believe that such a decision will open "ways to save part of the fleet abroad."

Earlier it was reported that the head of the board of directors of the Volga-Dnepr group, Alexei Isaikin, fell under British sanctions.

RBC, citing sources, wrote that Volga-Dnepr plans to lay off almost all the remaining pilots of the subsidiary cargo airlines AirBridgeCargo and Atran, who flew on Boeing aircraft - more than 200 employees.
