MOSCOW, January 16 – RIA Novosti. Andrey Klishas, head of the constitutional committee of the Federation Council, commenting on the statement that the Russian Federation should not charge foreign airlines for overflying Siberia, decidedthat the European Commission should thank Russia for the opportunity to fly over Ukraine.
Former head of the General Directorate of Transport the European Commission Henrik Hololei said that Russia should stop charging foreign airlines for using airspace over Siberia, as flight restrictions imposed as a result of the conflict in Ukraine have been lifted.
“The mere raising of the question by the “enemies” that the European Commission demands something from Russia already sounds comical. Let Russia say they can still fly over Ukraine,” the senator wrote on his Telegram channel.
