International airlines prefer to avoid flights over the territory of Ukraine, the Russkaya Vesna information website reported on Wednesday, citing an interactive map of the Flight Radar live flight tracker that shows air traffic in real time.

In 2007, the Swedish Travel Network company developed a system for tracking of flights in real time. These data, obtained by the European company, are displayed on the Flight Radar’s map. Any person can track the movement of planes around the world.

Almost all aircraft of the latest generation in Europe, Asia and the Middle East are equipped with the ADS-B surveillance technology. The Flight Radar’s map uses more than 500 two-way stations interacting with the ADS-B surveillance technology. More than 90% of the territory of Europe, as well as the territories of North and South America, Australia, Japan and some other regions of the Earth, are covered by a network of the stations.

As the author of the article noted, international airlines fly over the territory of Russia, right over cities, where air defense units are deployed, but, at the same time, they prefer to find a way around Ukraine. A screenshot, showed below, was made on February 11.

At the same time, the author stressed that Ukraine is not the one country, over which planes prefer not to fly. Such states as Libya, Chad, Guinea, Congo, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Angola, Burkina Faso, Namibia, and Mozambique are also in this list.

For the moment, the Flight Radar’s map shows us a bit different situation – we can notice four aircraft, moving over the Ukrainian territory. However, just four planes for such a big European country are extremely little amount. It is obviously that international airlines prefer to avoid flights over the country, which pretends to become a member of the European Union.

    That’s a huge money earned on the flight right’s , I wonder how much aircontrolers have been made redundant , or has NATO now taken over the air traffic

    Looking at the last picture, also Russia is not a beloved country in comparison to south and west europe.

    When one looks at this map and then remember the biggest shit that came after 9/11, the possibly biggest secret of them all, and once you accept that that is a fact, them multiply that first strike factor with AIS. The “secret” to accept is BUAP.

    Once you understand BUAP, you also understand its war and first strike capabilities.

    If your capable to see the mathematics of BUAP, you might as well also see BUAP and AIS. Its a ugly scenario. Just look at the density of NATO or is it US drones in the air at all times.
