Will my bags make MCT at SVO on a connection between SU and OK?

Hey all, in about a month I have a connection between OK and SU at SVO. It is around the international to international MCT I believe. On the outbound, I've got 2 hours but inbound only 75 minutes.

My flight is KBP-SVO-PRG. I arrive in Terminal D and depart in Terminal F. The plane is on a superjet however so I'm not sure if that means it is different when it comes to arrival (such as a bus gate).

I ask because I have the option to walk over to T2 in PRG before I leave. and check my bags at left luggage instead.

Thanks for the advice!

Should be fine (SU and OK have an interline agreement, so baggage should be checked through ok). I have had some tight connections in SVO, although typically I carry on. On the rare occasion that I have checked a bag, everything has been ok.

I have bounced b/w SVO and KBP before and cannot recall ever arriving at a bus gate (although have departed SVO from one twice), which is likely due to the configuration of passport control and security for transit passengers.

Well, if you're really worried, you can always do that.

Safe travels,

Thanks for this info. There are still some things I need to think about but you helped me out.
