MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Ukraine has not sent a notice of new missile launches near Crimea after its two-day military drills, the head of Russia's air transport agency Rosaviatsia said Friday.
"There were no new NOTAM [notice to airmen]. An old notice that we received last Thursday is in effect, which states that danger zones in western Ukraine would be activated over neutral waters and extend into our territorial waters," Alexander Neradko said on the sidelines of the Transport of Russia international forum.
Rosaviatsia said last week that Ukraine unilaterally decided to hold missile firing exercises near Crimea’s Simferopol on December 1-2 in violation of international agreements.
"We offered to consider this issue at the council of the International Civil Aviation Organization [ICAO], to address this unprecedented violation of all international laws, agreements on ensuring the safety of the Black Sea area," Neradko added.
The Russian Defense Ministry summoned Ukraine's defense attache last week to serve a note protesting Kiev illegally restricting the use of airspace over the Black Sea during the December 1-2 missile firing drills near Crimea.
"We are interacting with our Defense Ministry and monitoring airspace. We have done everything so that flights to Simferopol are safe," Neradko said.
