And any airline, Russian or not, that continues to fly to Russia as well. And not just airlines, any commercial entity.
Do business with Tsar Putin, OR do business with the West, but not both.
Russia needs the rest of the world's money far, far more than we need theirs. (Having grown up in the days of the Soviet Union, I was kind of surprised to read a while back their economy is now smaller than Canada's)

No, he was an American. He was born in Russia. Became an American citizen in 1928. Which would make him an American.
