Ukraine allowed Russian aircraft to fly over its territory to avoid a possible accident situation. About this in an interview with “the observer” reported the press Secretary of the state enterprise “ukraeroruh” Ruslan Danilov.
“If, God forbid, something would have happened to this vessel in the storm, where it flew, it would be the fault of Ukraine”, — she explained.
Danilov added that the air traffic controllers acted within international laws and standards and in such a situation, could not refuse the aircraft. “To accuse our company is that we acted against Ukraine, or, as we see in social networks, write about the change — is absolutely groundless,” — said the spokesman.
Earlier, on 9 August, the official representative of the foreign Ministry of Russia Maria Zakharova thanked Kiev for permission to fly over the territory of Ukraine. “Great news!” he wrote in Facebook.
