United has stopped selling flights to Russia via Lufthansa - ???

United used to have flights to Russia, but they've discontinued them. I used to buy United tickets with United service to Germany, and Lufthansa on to Moscow or Saint Petersburg. United sold me such a ticket 3 weeks ago.

But now they won't show Lufthansa flights. Have they stopped selling Lufthansa flights to Moscow? I can(!) get these same tickets (SFO-FRA-MOW) via Lufthansa, albeit more expensive. But United won't sell them to me anymore.

Why is that? US sanctions on Russia?

I don't find any such problem. I just looked and was able to pull up numerous flight combinations UA is willing to sell from the US to Russia (LED / MOW) n a combination of LH, LX, and OS. I searched in July and August 2015.
