Poland became the first country to ban Russian airlines from flying under their airspace.
The Prime Minister of Poland said in a tweet, “I have ordered the preparation of a resolution of the council of ministers which will lead to the closure of the airspace over Poland to Russian airlines.”
On Saturday, countries from the EU, Estonia, Lithuania, Romania, and Latvia announced that they are going to ban Russian airlines from flying in their airspace.
The Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas said in a tweet on Saturday, “We invite all EU countries to do the same. There is no place for planes of the aggressor state in democratic skies.”
The Russian private jets will now be barred from UK airspace in an extension of a ban that previously included Russia’s major airline Aeroflot. The UK Transport Secretary Grant Shapps announced on Friday evening that “Putin’s actions are unlawful and anyone benefiting from Russia’s aggression in Ukraine is not welcomed.”
