A representative of the occupation authorities said that such actions provoke Russia “to account.”
“The statement by the Ukrainian authorities about the virtual arrest of Russian planes is not just an attempt on the basic structures of Russian business, but also a thoughtless provocation of Russia to the arrest of numerous property objects of Ukrainian officials and big business in Russia, including Crimea, of which there are many in the republic.”
We will remind, since March 2014, Ukraine has closed the airspace over the annexed Crimea. At the same time, Russian airlines began to carry out regular passenger air transportation to the peninsula, violating international flight rules and Ukrainian legislation.
In the fall of 2020, the Crimean Prosecutor’s Office reported that 109 aircraft of these Russian airlines were arrested.
Earlier it was reported that Ukraine has seized 44 more aircraft of Russian airlines flying to the annexed Crimea. The aircraft violated the order of entry / exit from / to the occupied peninsula and the rules of international flights.
