KIEV, February 26. /ITAR-TASS/. Boryspil’s International Airport has addressed the Interior Ministry, the Security Service and the Prosecutor General’s Office to take under personal control the situation in the airport and prevent it from shutting down.
Over the past three days unknown people have made attempts to seize administrative buildings of the airport in order to destabilize and prevent its work.
“We ask to contribute to stopping the attempts to interfere into the airport’s activity and create all conditions for its further stable functioning,” the address says.
On February 24, employees of Boryspil Airport urged the Ukrainian parliament and the public not to create pretexts for preventing the work. “Boryspil International Airport is a state transport facility. Flights, security of passengers and compliance with international agreements on air service depends on the stable functioning of the airport,” the airport’s director-general, Aleksei Kochanov, told Itar-Tass.
“Any attempt to circulate misinformation leads to destabilizing the work of the airport,” Kochanov said.
Earlier, non-affiliated deputy Serhiy Mishchenko put forth an initiative to remove Kochanov from his position.
“People do not understand why Kochanov and his deputy for security still work. I ask to instruct law enforcement agencies to institute criminal proceedings and detain these people because ousted president Viktor Yanukovych’s entourage takes valuables out of the country,” Mishchenko said.
Boryspil International Airport is the major airport of Ukraine. It makes over 50% of passenger flights. Over 50 airlines make regular flights to over 100 countries. The airport is a member of the International Air Transport Association, the International Civil Aviation Organization and Airports Council International.
