It is worth mentioning that although Russia has rejected the new routes of Air France and Austrian Airlines, this does not mean that all flights around Belarus are prohibited.

In addition, a Russian reporter posted a comment. The British “Guardian” headline reported that “Russia bans all European aircraft from flying to Moscow,” but the text says that British Airways and Dutch Airlines can sail normally. “The reporter named Bryan MacDonald said that the author of this article showed us a terrible, provocative news work.”
