Airbus, the aircraft manufacturer, said it is sourcing titanium directly from Russia as well as other countries, Reuters reported.

"This is done in accordance with all applicable sanctions and current export control regulations," Airbus told the agency.

Earlier, the Wall Street Journal reported that Boeing said it was suspending titanium purchases from Russia.

It was reported last week that Airbus was suspending its engineering centre operations in Russia as well as its support services to Russian airlines.
