In May, President of Russia Vladimir Putin has submitted to the State Duma the bill on the denunciation by the Russian Federation of the Treaty on Open Skies.

In May 2020, then U.S. President Donald Trump made a decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Treaty on Open Skies. The reason is the violation of the treaty by Russia. Particularly, the issue is about the ban of observation flights over Moscow, Chechnia, and Kaliningrad Oblast.
