KIEV, July 28. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Supreme Administrative Court has revoked rulings of lower instances on levying penalties against Russia’s biggest air carrier Aeroflot for performing flights to Crimea, Ukrainskaya Pravda said on Tuesday, adding the decision was taken back on July 21.
Ukraine’s Aviation Service accused Russia’s Aeroflot of violating rule of the use of the Ukrainian air space when it ignored radio contact with Ukrainian air traffic controllers while performing a flight from Moscow to Simferopol, Crimea’s capital city declared by Ukraine as closed, on March 12, 2013.
Aeroflot challenged the protocol of this violation and, hence, the legitimacy of a penalty of 136,000 hryvnias ($6,100).
Ukraine’s Supreme Administrative Court ruled that the first instance and appeals courts "failed to establish details necessary for a right decision," which was the reason for cancelation of their awards and sending the case for re-consideration.
Earlier, in December 2014, Kiev’s region administrative court imposed a fine of 7.8 million hryvnias ($3.5 million) on Aeroflot for violating the rules of the use of Ukraine’s air space on 57 suits to a sum 136,000 hryvnias each.
