The U.S. government is apparently set to restrict Russian planes from American airspace in the midst of Moscow’s full-scale military attack of Ukraine.
Individuals acquainted with the matter told that Russian-claimed and – operated airplanes would be prohibited from U.S. airspace in the following 24 hours.
The U.S. decision comes after the European Union declared on Sunday that it would close its airspace to Russian flights.
“They will not have the option to land in, take off or overfly the domain of the EU,” Ursula von der Leyen, who fills in as leader of the European Commission, said at that point, noticing that the ban included “the personal luxury planes of oligarchs.”
The EU added that it would fund weapons for Ukraine following the invasion.
Canada gave a comparable request and shut its airspace to Russian trips on Sunday.
“Effective immediately, Canada’s airspace is closed to all Russian aircraft operators. We will hold Russia accountable for its unprovoked attacks against Ukraine,” Canada’s Minister of Transport Omar Alghabra said at the time.
In the mean time, Russia has given a comparable prohibition on European trips in reprisal for the decision.
Outside of the skies, different companies and businesses going from oil companies, media organizations, online media destinations and more have cut attaches with Moscow in the midst of the destructive attack.
