Russia says Putin won’t die in a plane crash because their domestic aircraft ‘are very reliable vehicles’

  • Recent aviation accidents have claimed the lives of Iran’s president and Malawi’s vice president. 
  • But Russia says Vladimir Putin is safe if he travels on their “very reliable” domestic aircraft.
  • Russian flight safety incidents have more than doubled in the past year, per JACDEC.

A Russian official says the country’s leader, Vladimir Putin, won’t get caught in a plane crash if he travels on domestic aircraft, state news agency TASS reported on Tuesday.

“The Russian president uses domestic aircraft. These are very reliable vehicles,” Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov told journalists.

Peskov was speaking at a press briefing when he was asked about the recent aviation accidents that claimed the lives of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and Malawi’s Vice President Saulos Chilima.

Raisi was flying over northwestern Iran when his helicopter crashed on May 19. Iran’s foreign minister, the governor of Iran’s East Azerbaijan province, and other officials were also on board the helicopter. No one survived the deadly incident.

Chilima, meanwhile, was killed in a plane crash along with nine other passengers on Tuesday. Malawi’s President Lazarus Chakwera said Chilima’s plane was found “completely destroyed” near a hill in northern Malawi.

However, Peskov said such incidents were unlikely to occur with Russian aircraft, given what he said were Russia’s rigorous safety standards.

“All machinery in our country that transports citizens is also maintained at the proper level. There are very strict standards in this regard, which are, of course, observed,” Peskov said.

“We have monitoring agencies,” he continued. “The system works.”

To be sure, Russia doesn’t exactly have the best record when it comes to flight safety.

In February, the Jet Airliner Crash Data Evaluation Centre (JACDEC) revealed that Russian flight safety incidents have more than doubled in the past year, going from 37 cases in 2022 to 81 in 2023.

The Russian aviation industry’s flight safety problems are in large part due to crippling economic sanctions the West imposed following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.

Such restrictions have made it difficult for Russia’s airlines to maintain their aircraft since they can’t buy new planes or parts.

In fact, the number of flight safety incidents in Russia might be much higher, says JACDEC founder and CEO Jan-Arwed Richter.

“These numbers only reflect cases that became public. There is still a dark figure of unreported incidents,” Richter told The Telegraph in February.

‘Extreme measures warranted’ in Alito recording: Filmmaker

(NewsNation) — Progressive filmmaker Lauren Windsor said that “extreme measures” drove her to pretend to be a religious conservative and secretly record her conversations with Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito and his wife Martha-Ann.

The recordings reveal that Martha-Ann Alito wants to get back at people who criticized her and her husband for flying politically affiliated flags at their homes.

“You come after me, I’m gonna give it back to you,” Martha-Ann Alito said in the recording of a private conversation at the Supreme Court Historical Society’s June 3 annual dinner. “There will be a way; it doesn’t have to be now, but there will be a way they know,” she added. “Don’t worry about it.”

The recordings were published by MSNBC and Windsor’s activist site The Undercurrent — the second set released Monday after previous recordings of Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Alito in Rolling Stone.

Alito’s flag controversy began last month when it was discovered that an “Appeal to Heaven” flag and an upside-down American flag were flown at the couple’s homes. The symbols have been associated with far-right politics, Christian nationalism, and were displayed by some of those who participated in the Jan. 6 Capitol riots.

In the recording, Martha-Ann Alito also committed to flying a “Sacred Heart of Jesus” flag at her homes this month to protest the display of an LGBTQ Pride flag nearby. The Sacred Heart of Jesus flag is a symbol associated with the Christian right wing, specifically used to protest Pride.

She said that her husband, the justice, has asked her not to put up flags at their properties.

“I won’t do that because I’m deferring to you,” Alito said she told her husband. “But when you are free of this nonsense, I’m putting it up and I’m gonna send them a message every day, maybe every week, I’ll be changing the flags.”

Windsor’s conversation with Justice Alito included him agreeing with her assertion that the U.S. should strive to be a Christian nation and his admission that much of the court’s business comes down to political ideology. Roberts pushed back against those ideas in the pair’s recorded conversation.

The recordings give insight into the political and religious biases present in the justice system.

“It’s easy for anyone to find anything offensive,” Windsor said when NewsNation’s Chris Cuomo asked why she only chose to record Republicans. “It’s a matter of degree. I don’t think that any of the liberal justices would betray a sense of ‘we can’t be impartial to the cases that are before this court.'”
