MOSCOW, January 6. /TASS/. The flights to Russia of two Turkish carriers - Pegasus Airlines and Onur Air - have been suspended as their leadership failed to provide the crews with visas, Russia’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said on Wednesday.
"We are outraged by today’s statement of the Turkish transport minister with unfounded accusations against Russia amid the suspended flights to the country of two Turkish air companies - Pegasus Airlines and Onur Air," Zakharova said in a commentary.
In comments to Ankara’s claims that Moscow has violated international aviation rules, the diplomat said the Turkish minister should better study the real situation with the Turkish airlines rather than join the "anti-Russian propaganda campaign."
The flights have been suspended as the companies’ leadership failed to worry about visas for the crew despite that fact that "Russia’s Foreign Ministry had circulated in advance information on introducing the visa regime with Turkey from January 1," she said.
