The Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine has announced a complete cessation of flight connection with the Russian Federation effective Oct. 25.

Censor.NET reports citing the press service of the Ministry of Infrastructure.

The ban will be applied to all Russian airlines and will operate until lifting of the "mirror-image sanctions" imposed by the aviation authorities of the Russian Federation with respect to the Ukrainian airlines. When they are lifted, the Russian airlines, which have not been included into the sanctions list, will be able to fly to Ukraine. The State Aviation Administration of Ukraine notified the Federal Air Transport Agency of the Russian Federation on its decision Oct. 9.
