Uncontained No.2 engine explosion on take-off. Managed to land back, but no flaps or brakes: off-runway excursion

The plane belongs to a Russian company, not Ukrainian Antonov Airlines; all the same, one has to wonder about  maintenance quality. 

There’s got to be a collective “there, but for the grace of God ...” by the three Challengers

Yep, and maintenance and owners nationally are irrelevant in those type of scenarios. However AC75's are not that heavy, just bulky, do we know what this one was carrying?
another, smaller antonov

It's planes all the way down, like russian nesting dolls

Given they are two different countries, why do you lump them together?
Are you talking about the Russian company and his references to the Ukrainian Airline?  I think he was just pointing out that this AN124 was owned by a separate Russian company and not related to the Ukrainian company that owned the ones that flew the AC75 to NZ.

Surely they should have been using the Grenadier to do that ??
