President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko appealed to Russian leader Vladimir Putin with a request to work out the issue of opening flights to the annexed Crimea. It was reported by RT.

Lukashenko noted that earlier Belarusians traveled to the peninsula through Ukraine.

"Ukraine has closed the sky for us. We have our own sanatorium in Crimea - in Miskhor, where people have always been going, flying. In order not to aggravate relations, we went through Ukraine - some by train, some by car, some by plane. Now they closed the sky. I told Putin: "Think about how we can get to the Crimea. We will not fly through Poland: they are not letting us through either," Lukashenko said.

After the incident with the forced landing of the Ryanair plane and the detention of journalist Roman Protasevich, a number of EU countries decided to suspend flights over Belarus, including flights to the country.
