Russia has prohibited the transit of Ukrainian flights in its air space, Russian PM Dmitry Medvedev stated. The ban will be imposed on transit flights of the Ukrainian companies to a number of countries: Azerbaijan, Georgia, Armenia and Turkey.
“For EU countries the revision is likely to take place in full, and with the United States negotiations on the use of trans-Siberian routes will be halted,” RF Prime Minister said.
Medvedev underscored that the government is considering measures to ban airspace for flights in the Asia-Pacific region for Western companies.
Moreover, Russia will stop talks with the United States on use of Trans-Siberian routes.
