Ukraine declared dangerous no-fly zone over the Crimea
Russia claims that Ukraine wants to “meddle” in the airspace of the Russian Federation.
Ukraine set a new danger zone for flights over the Crimea, reads the website of the Federal air transport Agency.
Earlier, Russia demanded from Ukraine to cancel the missile exercises in the vicinity of Simferopol. In response to Kiev and not to Moscow, “hysteria”, in accordance with international agreements, airspace of the Russian Federation in the Black sea ends up in the middle of the Kerch Strait. After that, Russia complained to the UN Agency.
It is reported that “the zone is installed over the neutral waters of the Black sea and partly over the black sea territorial waters of Russia to the South-West and South-East of Crimea.”
“Thus, the Ukrainian side has made another inexplicable attempt to “meddle” in sovereign airspace of Russia, this time at a distance of 6 to 10 nautical miles (11 to 18 kilometers) from the neutral waters,” – stated in the message.
The Russian authorities claim that Ukraine had not coordinated their action on the establishment of danger zones over neutral waters with the authorities of the Russian Federation.
“The Federal air transport Agency informs that flights over the Crimea are in no danger, the airspace over the Peninsula will not be closed, the safety of flights of Russian airlines that fly between Simferopol and other cities of Russia, guaranteed,” – said the Agency.
We will remind, Ukraine will hold military exercises with aerial firing in the southern part of the country in the period from 1 to 2 December.
