MOSCOW, December 4. /TASS/. The Russian Transport Ministry has made a request to the Tunisian authorities in order to enhance security for the Russian air flights, Deputy Transport Minister Valery Okulov told Moskva news agency on Friday.
"There are certain countries of higher risks, including Tunis," Okulov said. "We have only charter flights there, so we made a request to the Tunisian authorities to introduce extra security measures for Russia's air flights."
The ministry will send such requests to other higher risk countries, he added.
