After airspace closure, 10 Russian planes remain in Germany

BERLIN: Nearly half a 12 months after the European Union closed its airspace to planes from Russia, 10 airplanes owned or managed by Russians stay in Germany, based on a media report revealed on Sunday.

“Since the planes are subject to a take-off and flight ban due to the EU sanctions regime, they cannot be used by their owner and cannot be moved to another location,” the Transport Ministry was cited as saying within the report by the RND media group.

Three Russian Antonov AN-124 planes are grounded in Leipzig, a Bombadier jet airplane and a Boeing 737 are in Cologne, and a Boeing 747 is at Frankfurt-Hahn airport, dpa information company reported quoting the report.

An additional 4 jet planes are on an airfield within the south-western city of Baden-Baden, based on the report.

The EU closed its airspace to Russia in late February, in response to its assault on Ukraine.
