I don't understand why this ancient Antonovs, Tupolevs and Yakovlevs are even still flying. Many of them are 30-40 years old and should have been scrapped at least ten years ago.

Western airlines and charter airlines regularly upgrade their fleets with modern Airbuses and Boeings.
Since Russia of today is unable to sustain company to compete with them, they should all retire their Soviet museum fleets and buy up Western replacements, just for purposes of safety.

Either that or they should allocate less money to military research in aviation, and put more money into civilian transport research instead, so that companies like Sukhoi can bring out several ideas that could again compete with Western ideas like during times of Cold War with those Tupolevs, Ilyushins and other such planes.
