SIMFEROPOL, November 30. /TASS/. There will be no threat to safety of flights over Crimea, if Ukraine conducts missile tests near the Black Sea peninsula, Crimean Prime Minister, Sergei Aksyonov, told reporters on Wednesday.
"There is no threat to flight safety, as Rosaviatsiya (the Russian Federal Air Transport Agency) said earlier. Simferopol’s airport is operating as usual, all services are fully functioning," Aksyonov stressed.
According to Aksyonov, the Ukrainian authorities announced plans to carry out missile tests to harass Crimea. "They just do not know what else to do to harm Crimea," Aksyonov noted.
The Russian Federal Air Transport Agency earlier reported that, in violation of all international agreements, Ukraine unilaterally decided to carry out missile tests on December 1-2 in Russia’s sovereign airspace near Crimea where the itineraries of civil and state aircraft lie.
