None of them match directly.

S7 will grant a match only if you fly one flight with them.

Really?

Who to contact?

SU used to match years ago. Most recently SU had a challenge campaign, back when the Ruble fell from 30 to 70 to 60 today = USD1
when a mass exodus of expats left. 2 years ago?

I don't know.

I haven't applied for any match on any Russian carrier but based on previous reports, SU has matched back in 2010 and S7 still does some sort of unofficial challenge.

I emailed S7 a few days ago requesting a status challenge but got a replied with the usual drill 'to achieve our status levels, you need to fly with us certain number of times... blah blah blah'.
Maybe it's a classical case of HUACA? Or in that case - just EA (email again)

Did you provide upcoming travel? If yes it could be HUACA. Try again if you have upcoming travel with them.

Otherwise, if you don't have any upcoming trips then they do not match.

I tried 3 times already with +/- 10 domestic reservations and ... always the same copy/past message with link to "how to reach elite status"etc etc.

Well I created the wikipost so now no one needs to answer questions about status match.

There is no need to keep emailing them. SU and S7 both had status match campaigns last year after Transaero (UN) has shut. For SU you had to fly 5 sectors in flexible economy and for S7 1x sector in any class before they matched your status. UT had something simmilar whereby they would award you their Bronze tier (+10% miles;longer period of miles validty;+1PCS) if you flew their new route from DME to NUX.

None of them match at the moment directly or indirectly!
