The Ukrainian government has begun working to resume the international air traffic connection with foreign countries. A source in the diplomatic service told that to the Ukrainska Pravda news agency.
According to the interlocutor, Ukraine is not going to wait for the offers from other states. Instead, it begins negotiations on this matter on its own.
"We've got to open-air traffic (...), including that with EU member countries, taking into account the other sides' decisions to lift the restrictions", the interlocutor said. He explained that it only makes sense to restore flights when citizens "can enter the respective state and have the opportunity to return to Ukraine with regular flights".
The source also said that the Ukrainian embassies in foreign countries were instructed by the government to start negotiations on this issue.
So far, citizens of Ukraine and other non-EU member countries are banned from entering the Schengen area; the restrictions is to expire on June 15. So long, it remains unknown whether the EU plans to extend the travel ban.
