"We will not fly to Crimea for now": Belarus answered the question about flights to the Russian peninsula

The state airline Belavia is going through a difficult period now. The European Union, Ukraine, Great Britain, Singapore, the USA and a number of other states have organized a blockade of this air carrier after the incident with the airliner of the Irish low-cost airline Ryanair in the skies of Belarus.

In Russia, they are worried about the fraternal people in the neighboring country, are interested in problems and offer all possible help. After the recent meeting In Sochi, the leaders of the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation, Alexander Lukashenko and Vladimir Putin, respectively, it became known that new Belavia flights to Russian airports should be opened. Therefore, many Russians began to be interested in the question of whether air traffic between Belarus and Crimea, which is also in the blockade of Western countries, will begin.

Belarus answered a question about flights to the Russian peninsula. General Director of Belavia Igor Cherginets on the air of the YouTube channel "Solovyov Live" said that the air carrier does not plan to fly to Crimea yet.

We won't fly to Crimea yet

- he answered directly to the presenter.

What must happen for Belavia to fly to Crimea? First, there must be political recognition of Crimea as part of the Russian state

- stressed the head of the airline.

There will be a political decision - we will look. Why? Because there are still commercial issues. If you look at the history of our flights to Crimea. At that time it was the Ukrainian Crimea. We flew intermittently. We fly, we do not fly. That is, there are passengers, then there are no passengers. Then there, at the airport, the prices were raised - we do not fly, reduced - we fly

- he said.

Cherginets explained that before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Belavia operated approximately 150 flights to Russia. Today Belavia operates only 12 flights a week to the Russian Federation. He complained that Russian officials are restricting the activities of an airline from Belarus. At the same time, he expressed the hope that the aforementioned communication of the heads of state in Sochi will positively affect this issue and the number of Belavia flights to Russia will increase.

      When, in response, Soloviev suggested flying to Crimea, his Belarusian interlocutor suddenly began to yearn for Ukraine.

      “I still hope that the common sense of this government, administration, and the Dovzhenko film studio will change, and we will still return to Ukraine. I really want to return to Kiev, I love Kiev, I love Lviv, I love skiing, ”Chegrinets said.

      During the interview, his laptop was closed twice, moreover, every time when it came to his love for Ukraine. The director of "Belavia" at the very beginning stressed that his surname is Ukrainian. He said that after the unscheduled landing of the Irish plane, which became the reason for an international scandal, he received a call from Kiev and asked to refuel the liner that had unexpectedly landed in Minsk. He also boasted that they were calling him with words of support from Ukraine.

      Earlier, Belavia signed an advertising contract with Sergei Mikhalk, who settled in Ukraine as the ex-leader of the Lyapis Trubetskoy group, who has recently professed radical nationalist views.

      that's what kind of brothers they are ...

        Well, not "they". And those whom father fed with "left tit". Who now, with But Father, luck. Like the same Tikhanovskaya. Which Lukash himself gently expelled. I gave money to the track. And she, ungrateful, began to spread rot of her own.

        Lukoshenko drowned and trampled the rest. Everything and everyone is more or less pro-Russian, read normal, ordinary. I think no one has any doubts that Russians live in Belarus, and ... there are many people who are not visible or heard now. And there are many of them. Highly. They have nothing to do with it ...

        PS When I was talking on one of the sites, I knew a woman, a resident from near Kiev. So after 14 years, not a single comment from her. Silently put pluses. I concluded that I was simply afraid of the SBU ...

        So in Minsk, Belarusian Nazism metastases and ... is actually supported by Putin. No, in words he is probably not "in the know," but in practice, only but father - as "the one with whom it is worth talking" to "our", who simply does not succeed in national politics. The rest do not seem to exist for the "commander-in-chief".

        Or, more precisely, nothing turns out to be grabbed at, in fits of rating increase ...

          does it mean that Putin should find Russians among the khataskrayniks, who were shit out of fear? And How? chick-chick say and crumble crumbs from cookies? laughing and even if they are already in Russia from fear under the beds are hiding? what a valuable acquisition ...

    Oh, Father, ah, you are our multi-vector .... Crimea cannot be recognized as Russian, he cannot fly to Crimea, as if his brothers-in-arms, the Bandera members did not think anything bad about him, but he again recently concluded an agreement on supplies to the "nezalezhnaya" large the amount of diesel fuel from the Mozyr Oil Refinery for tanks and armored personnel carriers of the Armed Forces. Last month, Ukraine received from Belarus 262 thousand tons of diesel fuel, which is one and a half times more than in previous months, and here we are again talking about some kind of brotherhood, but he needs currency, and the fact that his hands too up to the elbows in the blood of the people of Donbass due to the supply of all kinds of energy sources to Ukraine, he does not give a damn about that from a high church.

      yes, everything is clear with onions for a long time, he is a cunning scoundrel, but that's why Putin once again swallowed everything, if he put the question harshly, then the mustachioed fuel would not sell and his friends Bandera would catch, and would not plant donbass volunteers

        After all, this question "suggests itself" by itself. If daddy is a stinky OZEL, selling fuel for a war with ours. Who is Putin then?

        Plus for the "rigidity"!

      During all the post-Maid years, Ukraine was regularly supplied with oil products from Belarus. Gasoline, diesel fuel, fuel oil and even bitumen processed from cheap oil supplied from Russia flowed to Ukraine, including the Donbass, to the conflict zone.

      From the side of Ukraine, sanctioned goods also flowed in a stream, in Belarus they were re-registered, the country of origin changed and already in a new capacity went to Russian trade networks.

      This is all true. And it has been going on for about 7 years. But if ...,

      his hands are also up to the elbows in the blood of the people of Donbass due to the supply of all kinds of energy resources to Ukraine

      then how to evaluate the contemplative position of the current Kremlin that it did not demand and does not demand from Lukashenka NOT TO MAKE OUR RUSSIAN oil and NOT SELL what leads to blood in the Donbass. There is no anti-Putinism here. But having said "A", it is necessary, for objectivity, to say "B". Or is it "taboo"?

      Then it is worth asking - why Putin's Kremlin V.V. really wants?

    It used to be like that. Flights of companies on a parity basis.
    Conventionally: ten Belavia flights, ten Aeroflot flights.

    Apparently the cunning ass could not unequivocally answer the question "Whose Crimea".
    It is high time that the evil one with the entourage was sent to the polygraph.

    When flying to Crimea, Belavia's planes will be subject to sanctions, and then the company can be safely put an end to. She will have nowhere else to fly, there will remain (if any), only these last 12 flights.

        The company is now under sanctions. The planes are "clean". I read that the planes themselves are included in the lists when flying to the Crimea, they are perfectly tracked. And then they have only one road - to fly at home and in the Russian Federation only.
