MOSCOW, April 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Representatives of the Russian Transaero airline have been informed by the Ukrainian side that the admission of Russian male citizens aged 16-60 to Ukraine has been temporarily suspended, a Transaero source told ITAR-TASS.
Male citizens are admitted only in cases of emergency on condition that they have certificates to confirm the kinship with Ukrainian citizens and in cases of death or serious illness of their relatives.
Citizens of the Russian Federation are admitted with no certificates if they travel across the territory of Ukraine with children as a family.
A similar ban has been imposed on male citizens aged 16- 60, who are registered on the territory of Crimea and Sevastopol, the Transaero source said.
Transaero charges no fines if passengers booked flights to Ukraine and want to return their tickets, the source said.
Earlier, the Aeroflot and S7 airline companies had declared that they charge no fines for air tickets returned after the notification by the Ukrainian side.
