Aeroflot to be held accountable for Belarus


The European Union is discussing the possibility of applying sanctions against the Russian air carrier Aeroflot. This became known to the Bloomberg agency. The reason for this decision may be the migration crisis on the Belarusian-Polish border.


It is reported that Aeroflot may be involved in the delivery of groups of refugees from the Middle East and Asia to Belarus, from where they are trying to break through further to the EU. In addition to the Russian airline, Turkish Turkish Airlines also appears in the documents.

Bloomberg notes that a new package of sanctions in connection with the migration crisis in Eastern Europe may be adopted by the United States, Great Britain and the European Union in early December.

Earlier, the American publication Politico reported that the sanctions instruments could be used against such airlines as Belavia, Aeroflot, Utair, Nordwind Airlines, as well as Turkish Airlines and FlyDubai.

According to sources close to Aeroflot, the airline does not operate flights to countries from which the traditional flow of refugees comes (Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan). If we talk about the Middle East, then the planes of the Russian airline fly only to the United Arab Emirates, Iran, Israel and Egypt.

    Russia may impose sanctions on Aeroflot for Belarus

    Well, then they themselves will fly to Asia through Africa! A response in the form of a ban on the passage of their planes will come immediately. Or will it not come?

    In general, before introducing sanctions against Russian and Turkish airlines, it is better to look at the map, how would these EU sanctions go sideways. Anyway, who gave the EU the right to tell the airlines where and who to take ... Complete nonsense.

      And it's even better to look at what Russian air taxi drivers fly))) It is very easy for Europe to put all Russian aviation on the ass, with a few exceptions for local aircraft))

        Are they going to dance this tango alone? Like "good (goof) GDP and Rashka" will endure everything? Oh well...

    Just to find a reason to find sanctions or threats, the meaning is not important at all.

    Sanctions will be imposed on Aeroflot - in response, an increase in tariffs for servicing aircraft of the EU air campaigns, the flesh until a complete ban on flights through the airspace of the Russian Federation
    They do not recognize RF vaccines - a ban on entry from the EU and the USA for all unvaccinated RF vaccines.
    They do not issue visas to the Russian Federation, let them receive visas to enter the Russian Federation at the embassies of Syria and the DPRK, for example.
    It is necessary to respond to the sanctions adequately, and to chew the snot.

    The guarantor of courage will not have enough to answer adequately, it will cover itself as usual with the interests of Russia, the midoks, as usual, will attend to, perhaps very much
