Russia's civil aviation authority has banned UK flights to and over Russia in retaliation to the British ban on Aeroflot flights. Rosaviatsiya said all flights by the UK carriers to Russia as well as transit flights are banned starting Friday.

It said the measure was taken in response to the "unfriendly decisions" by the British authorities who banned flights to the UK by the Russian flag carrier Aeroflot as part of sanctions over Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
