The West decided to deprive Ukraine of civil aviation

The Ukrainian airline SkyUp spoke about the requirements of lessors (lessor - the lessor) of aircraft and the termination of aircraft insurance, describing in detail what is happening on its website.

The air carrier noted that on February 12, 2022, the world's largest insurance companies informed Ukrainian airlines that they would stop insuring all types of aircraft for flights in Ukrainian airspace within 48 hours. The decision is justified by “increased risks of the outbreak of hostilities” in the country.

The communiqué clarifies that the owners of the aircraft demand their return to the EU as soon as possible. That is why flight PQ0902 Funchal (Madeira Island, Portugal) - Kiev was forced to land in Chisinau (Moldova). Then 175 passengers were sent by bus to the capital of Ukraine.

SkyUp CEO Dmitry Seroukhov explained that the current situation requires urgent decisions to be made at the state level. Now the airline is trying to solve the problem together with the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine.

We are doing our best to continue operating flights as usual, but we cannot ignore the demands of the lessors. We have temporarily stopped selling tickets for departures from 14 to 16 February 2022 and we are waiting for a solution to the situation

- summed up Seroukhov.

It should be added that operators of small private jets in Ukraine told Strana that they also received notifications from lessors, i.e. real owners of aircraft, that within 48 hours the insurance guarantees on their boards will be withdrawn. In this regard, the aircraft must leave the territory and airspace of Ukraine before the expiration of the specified time, approximately before noon on February 14.

Note that before this it became known about preparing "air blockade" of Ukraine by Western countries, which are actively pushing Kiev to start an offensive in the Donbass. Currently, many Ukrainians have begun to wonder who is really the aggressor in relation to their state.

    The same actions put Ukrainian companies on a joke - after all, the planes are leased, sold out. And the attempts of Ukrainian businessmen to agree on resolving the situation with the help of the government are pure profanity: that country is not an authority for insurers at all.
    Let's wait, the largest foreign company in the market of country 404 has not announced any actions yet, let's wait. This is the Ryanair group by the way.

    Sanctions against Russia tend to expand. Without reference to the situation with Ukraine.
    Russian airlines may face a similar ambush with a fleet of foreign aircraft. As this situation shows, this can be arranged, in one snout, by our historical sworn "friends" of the Britons.

      Are they leased or bought from us?

        Probably differently.
        But air carriers are usually short of funds to expand their business. Leasing is in many ways more convenient than taking loans secured by aircraft.
        Therefore, airlines love leasing.

        If the planes are yours, then there may be loans for them, then the situation is the same, the bank's requirement is to use it with insurance.

        Mostly in leasing, but there is also domestic leasing, Ilyushin Finance Co, through which SSJ, Tu, and others go.

    Apparently, the outlandish insurers know well (on a professional level) that it is the Kiev puppets themselves (for the sake of "pushing through" American anti-Russian sanctions that are disadvantageous to Europeans) in the summer of 2014 shot down a Malaysian Boeing (also flying peacefully over the razmaidan "Ukraine"!)? ! what
    And none of the insurers is willing to sacrifice their own finances for the next vile "games" of the State Department in the impoverished American colony "Anti-Russia"!
    After all, if the "Maidan authorities" did not disdain to arrange a bloody provocation then, it means that now they will easily destroy any other passenger airliner at the signal of their Washington masters (who are known for such provocations around the world, without stopping before slaughtering their own American citizens for the sake of the selfish interests of further "fighting against terrorism", by seizing new colonies and other people's natural resources by pro-American terrorists)?! winked

    Leasing - in this case, it is from the American word LEASING -, and not from English - Lessor
