We are observing a very dangerous period of political pressure on Russia, such as the events in Belarus, and Navalny alleged poisoning that is unsupported by evidence. It can be said immediately that this complex set of measures at the political, military, strategic, cultural and humanitarian levels, are aimed at destabilising the situation, to make Russia respond to provocations in order to attack it and discredit in the information space. And they will continue in this manner until they destabilise, as they think, the situation inside Russia.
The office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine announced the “arrest” of 65 planes for their flights to Crimea. There is a version spreading on the Internet that these restrictions could be revenge for the Minsk’s surrender of 33 Russian citizens, whom Kyiv wanted to question.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukraine.
There is no evidence to assume any connection between the seizure of Russian planes that flew to Crimea and the refusal to extradite Russian soldiers from Belarus to Ukraine.
The "arrest" of the aircraft was due to their illegal visits to annexed Crimea. Since March 2014, Ukraine has closed the airspace over the occupied Crimean peninsula due to the inability to monitor flight safety. This was reported by the Office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine and the Ukrainian Prosecutor's Office of Crimea.
Previously, Ukrainian law enforcement agencies had demanded compensation for flights over the territory of Crimea even before the events with the Russian private military soldiers ("Wagnerites") in Belarus. In 2017, the Ukrainian prosecutor's office of Crimea brought a respective lawsuit against Russia.
