MANILA, November 19. /TASS/. After banning flights to Egypt, Russia may impose similar restrictions on other countries, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Thursday.
"I cannot rule out that in certain conditions, we will have to consider these issues regarding other destinations and other countries but I hope this will not happen," he said.
"As we see no obvious problem, flights should not be banned," Medvedev said, adding that Russia could not prohibit its nationals from visiting any country.
On November 6, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered flights to Egypt suspended amid security concerns following the October 31 Russian airliner crash and the deaths of 224 passengers and crew on the Sinai peninsula.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the flight ban would remain in force until Egypt took measures to ensure travellers' safety.
