The Russian government says it's response to US sanctions will not include blocking titanium to aircraft manufacturers, including Boeing and Airbus, as the move would negatively impact its state-owned titanium producer, VSMPO-Avisma.

VSMPO-Avisma had warned the Russian government about the consequences of the sanctions against the US, following a recent bill of retaliatory sanctions as a result of US actions.

VSMPO-Avisma is the world's largest supplier of titanium, and has been in business with both Boeing and Airbus for decades.
