Repossessed 747 freighters from Russia

Three of the 800 series freighters taken back by the lessor as a result of Ukraine War are sitting stored in Arizona. Any word that they are getting bought or leased again?

Just a Spotter, what has that to do with the -8 Freighters?
The pax -8s are coming from Korea.

Rumor I heard was that they’re actually owned by the Bank of China.
