MOSCOW, October 8. /TASS/. Russia’s Deputy Transport Minister Valery Okulov sees no reasons for Russian air carriers to resume flights over Ukraine’s south-east with the beginning of the winter season.
“I do not see any reasons or prospects (for the resumption of flights),” Okulov told TASS on the sidelines of the 10th big business forum.
The European Organization for the Security of Air Navigation (Eurocontrol) last July issued recommendations against flights through that part of Ukraine after the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 was downed over Donetsk. The no-fly zone in the east of Ukraine incorporates such large cities as Donetsk, Kharkiv and Dnipropetrovsk. Tens of air carriers have followed the recommendations to avoid the area.
