NEWS Kiev bans flights from Russian airlines as the Ukraine crisis continues

Ukraine has said it will ban Russian airlines from flying into the country as part of sanctions over Moscow’s support for rebels in the east.
Kiev said the measures would take effect on 25 October and would include major Russian airlines Aeroflot and Transaero.
Russian transit flights will also be banned if the planes carry military personnel or dual-use goods.
Moscow described the move as “an act of madness”, promising a firm response.
