The last Russian operating airline in Ukraine has finally been banned.
The measure annonunced by Ukraine’s ministry of Infrastructure will apply to all flights coming from Russia since October the 25th as a response of Russia’s previous banning of the operation of all the Ukrainian airlines in September the 29th, once again as a response of the ban of all Russian aircrafts but one by the Ukrainian government as part of the list of sanctions imposed to Putin’s regime.
UTair was the last operating Russian airline in Ukraine.
The measure won’t be lifted unless Russia doesn’t do the same with the banning of Ukrainian aircrafts operation.
According to declarations of Ukraine’s Prime Minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, Russia’s decision to ban Ukrainian aircrafts is far from destroying or seriously damage airlines in the country.
