The Russian Foreign Ministry allowed the termination of flights with the United States because of visa problems

” Aeroflot “, which is the only regular flights between Russia and the US may be forced to stop them, because the crews are experiencing increasing difficulties in obtaining US visas, “- said in a statement the Foreign Ministry. The Russian agency recalls the Russian-American Air Services Agreement of 1994, which requires countries to provide visas to aircraft personnel in advance.

According to the Russian side, the visa blockade is built by Washington deliberately to recoup Russian citizens “for the independent course of Russia in the international arena.” “The US authorities seem to be afraid that the visiting Russians will disclose to ordinary Americans their eyes on the absurdity of anti-Russian propaganda, which they impose, and therefore purposefully interfere with contacts between people”

The situation with the issue of American visas in Russia is “extremely depressing,” the official waiting time for the interview is extended to 250 days, the Foreign Ministry said. “In other words, applying for visas becomes meaningless.” In the opinion of the Russian side, Washington is deliberately building a blockade blockade in order to recoup Russian citizens “for Russia’s independent course in the international arena.” “The US authorities seem to be afraid that the visiting Russians will disclose to ordinary Americans their eyes on the absurdity of anti-Russian propaganda, which they impose, and therefore purposefully interfere with contacts between people,” the statement said.

A representative of Aeroflot confirmed the problem with obtaining US visas. However, he did not comment on the possible termination of air traffic.

” Aeroflot ” – the only airline that operates regular direct flights between the US and Russia. Earlier, this was done by the American airline Delta. However, Delta refused direct flights between the US and Russia in the coming summer season, Kommersant wrote with reference to the carrier.
