One way to reduce the number of Pilots....and need for commercial aircraft is to conscript them.
Keeps them flying, most of them are grounded anyway. The US has a similar system no? If I remember well many reserve units served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
MR PUTIN IS DESPERATE CONSIDERING THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE HE HAS LOST IN HIS WAR TO CONTROL EVERYONE..THAT IS HIS WAY AND IT WONT CHANGE UNTIL THEY ARE DEFEATED..
The next coup in Russia will be interesting.
