Belarus Wants Flight Parity

Belarussian aviation authorities are insisting in an ongoing dispute that Russian and Belarussian air companies have an equal number of flights between Minsk and Moscow, RIA-Novosti reported Thursday.

The dispute started when the two countries agreed to have four flights in each direction between them, but Russia, reportedly, tried to obtain more of the agreed flights for Russian companies. This led to a brief halt in flights on the route Monday morning.

The Belarussian transportation ministry said before a meeting Thursday that they were willing to continue relations according to a 1997 agreement between the countries' air authorities.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
