Russia's Rubin Aviation Corporation has launched a plant in Balashikha, a city near Moscow, to produce parts for MC-21 medium-haul passenger aircraft, as part of an import substitution strategy, the Russian Industrial Development Fund told Sputnik on Wednesday
Currently, MC-21 airliners are made with some parts produced by US and European manufacturers.
"The company has put into operation a new workshop that manufactures alternating current hydraulic drives and plunger pumps, which are used in aerospace engineering," the fund's press service said.
The new production is expected to completely replace the imported parts for the planes in the future.
