    Russia is ready to hold consultations with Ukraine "at any time" on organizing air corridors between the countries.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russia’s aviation regulator and the Ministry of Transport have sent three proposals to Ukraine’s aviation authorities to hold consultations on providing air corridors between the two countries after October 25, Russian Deputy Transport Minister Valery Okulov said Tuesday.

    “We have sent three proposals: two proposals are from the Ministry of Transport, and one is from Rosaviatsia, that are concerned with the agreement on air corridors. If the Ukrainian side responds to such a proposal [to hold consultations], then we are ready to hold consultations anywhere and at any time,” Okulov told journalists.
