Antonov An-140 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
First flown on 17 September 1997, the 52 passenger An-140 is being produced at the main production line in Kharkiv by KHDABP, in Samara by Aviakor, and assembled under license by Iran Aircraft Manufacturing Industrial Company (HESA) in Iran as the IrAn-140.[2][3] Assembly in Kazakhstan has also been discussed in tri-partite discussions between the Kazakh government, Ukraine and Russia
End of discussion about "spare parts"

This accident has indeed nothing to do with spare parts.

Getting spare parts for Iran airlines Western types is a problem, a difficult and costly one but they get them eventually. Getting western airframes second hand is not a problem . Plenty on muslim countries selling to them .

Last time I was in THR ( last year) we visited HESA and went inside one of their 140. It is assembled in Iran, but it is a basic version. I was told only the Government uses them. Only 5 or 6 were assembled and flying.

All commercial airlines in Iran has since a couple of years dropped all their Russian/soviet types. Maybe during high demand one can be leased in , but it is ( was until then at least) exeptional.
