KIEV, September 28. /TASS/. Ukraine has informed Russian airlines of the ban on flights to the country starting from October 25, the state aviation service of Ukraine said on Monday.
"We have informed in a written statement all Russian companies that have been included in the published list," an official at the agency of the Ukrainian government responsible for civil aviation said.
This comes in line with the decision of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council and the Ukrainian president’s decree.
Russia’s biggest air carrier, Aeroflot, along with 20 more Russian air companies have been blacklisted by the Ukrainian authorities. These companies were banned, partially or completely, to perform flights to destinations in Ukraine or via Ukraine.
The sanctions list includes Aeroflot subsidiaries Rossiya, Donavia, Orenburg Airlines and Transaero, as well as S7 (Sibir, Russia’s third air carrier in terms of passenger traffic) and Urals Airlines (ranked fifth).
The blacklist also features such air companies Globus, Vim Avia, Kogalymavia, Gazpromavia and Red Wings, all ranked among Russia’s top 30.
The special air squadron Rossiya that carries Russia’s top officials and the 224th air squadron of the Defence Ministry are also on the sanctions list.
