What's the problem? I've flown on a Russian AN-124 many times while transporting the Atlas V rocket. We flew out of Denver and delivered to the Cape and Vandenberg. Using the AN-124 for transport is nothing new. It is a heavy lift plane and has range.

FYI - the plane that handled the satellite would be held by Volga-Dnepr. They are an international company with operations in many countries including Ireland and Houston, TX, USA so that they can do business with countries like the US. There are also trade laws, specifically International Traffic in Arms, that regulate contracts, transport and handling of information/hardware like the satellite going to S. America to the Japanese.

So, unwad your panties and read up a little about how the world works.
