Russia's aviation authority on Thursday suspended flights by Boeing 737 MAX planes in the country's airspace following Sunday's deadly plane crash in Ethiopia, the Interfax news agency cited the authority's head as saying.

Russia's S7 Airlines said earlier this week it would ground its Boeing 737 MAX 8 planes starting from Wednesday. It said its fleet consisted of 96 planes, including two Boeing 737 MAX, the only such planes owned by Russian carriers.

… 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.
