MOSCOW, November 30. /TASS/. Russia’s Transport Ministry has informed the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) of Ukraine’s decision to introduce new no-fly zones, Deputy Transport Minister Valery Okulov told reporters on Wednesday.
The Russian experts voiced their concerns at the air navigation council of the ICAO North Atlantic Bureau. "We expect that this statement will be adopted as the official resolution. We also inform the president of ICAO’s council."
On Tuesday, Ukraine issued new Notices to AirMen (NOTAMs) on new dangerous areas for flights over the Black Sea waters, Sergey Izvolsky, the official spokesman for Russia’s Federal Aviation Service (Rosaviatsia), told TASS. The Ukrainian side made another unexplained attempt to "intrude into" Russia’s sovereign airspace but this time around by 6 to 10 nautical miles (11 to 18 kilometers) from the side of neutral waters, the aviation watchdog said.
All dangerous zones mentioned by Ukraine are located in the so-called Simferopol flight information region - this is a limited airspace over the Black Sea in which air traffic is managed by air traffic controllers from the Russian aeronautical provider - the state corporation for the organization of airspace in Russia, it said.
On November 25, Ukraine issued an aviation notification on "activating dangerous zones at all flight levels in view of missile firing exercises scheduled for December 1 and 2." This refers to segments of airspace over the Black Sea west of Crimea, including 6 nautical miles (12 kilometers) into Russia’s territorial waters.
