The air blockade of Kaliningrad due to the fact that Estonia and Latvia closed the airspace for Russian aircraft is excluded. On Saturday, February 26, reports RIA News with reference to the head of the press service of the regional government Dmitry Lyskov.
“Residents of the Kaliningrad region will be able to fly to ‘big’ Russia via neutral waters and the Leningrad region,” Lyskov said.
According to him, this will increase the flight time, but will not greatly affect the cost of plane tickets.
