A KLM Boeing 777-200, registration PH-BQB performing flight KL-861 from Amsterdam (Netherlands) to Tokyo Narita (Japan), was enroute at FL330 about 360nm north of Kazan (Russia) when the crew decided to return to Amsterdam due to a hydraulic pump fault. The crew advised on approach to Amsterdam they needed more time than usual to extend the landing gear and deploy the flaps, in particular the flaps would move very slowly. They would need to stop on the runway. The aircraft landed safely on Amsterdam's runway 18C about 4:10 hours after the decision to turn around and stopped on the runway. The aircraft was towed to the apron about 20 minutes after landing.

A passenger reported the crew announced one of the three hydraulic pumps had failed. Due to weather they didn't want to divert to Siberia (Russia), therefore they were returning to Amsterdam.
