He probably refers to Brussels Airlines, from BRU to SVO.

I guess you are talking about SN? But they have a totally different business plan. Pobeda is transporting (leisure) passengers that have to go from Russia to Belgium. SN transports both leisure and business passengers from Russia to whole Europe, to Africa and to Northern America. You can't compare the two airlines.

Flights for this summer are still bookable.
Book one and go for a big surprise!
Flights are sold out now.
Was nice to see them at OST but we can forget a restart now.

Cologne is getting extra flights and will be served daily from mid September.

Does OST (Bruges) have a future regarding city trips?

Yes ,of course.A few examples:
-The LF on the Moscow flights was not bad. If Pobeda resumes flights as from october from Moscow AND,why not, Saint-Petersburg, it is likely to work. They only need to attract a little bit more Belgian,French,Dutch passengers.
- EGIS should find an airline willing to resume BCN ,NCE and FCO flights and it wil work again. Maybe an italian or Spanisch carrier to attract more Italian and Spanish passengers. Volotea/Vueling? Maybe in cooperation with TUI to offer the citytrips.

- A destination which could work: Manchester.
- Scotland/Ireland: Direct flights to GLA/ABZ/DUB through London Southend. Loganair just has to extend 1 of their Scotland flights from SEN to OST and there is a connection with both Glasgow and Aberdeen (Offshore-industry + backpackers from Belgium and city-trippers from over there into Bruges/Ghent/Ypres/...)
