It is not about propaganda only.
As Borisov stated on March 16, the issue of resumption of manufacturing of IL-96s and TU-214s in larger series is being seriously considered (in Russian). So is introduction of MC-21 and SSJ-100 Russified being accelerated. The issue with IL-96 with four PS-90A(n) or TU-214 with two PS-90A(n) or even PD-14 is not technical--production lines of these aircraft are fully operational and continue to produce these aircraft--it is economic in terms of model of some subsidies to already affordable kerosene for these guys, or maybe airfare itself. So, the return of IL-96 will be very interesting. As will be that of the TU-214s which will fill in the niche until production of MC-21 and its LR version hits its peak.
