Despite the ban, European airports accept landing for airplanes that also serve flights to the Russian-occupied Crimea
The planes that serve regular flights to Simferopol in Russian-occupied Crimea, also conduct flights to Norway, Italy, German, Denmark, Greece, Austria and other EU countries, according to the investigation published by BS News and "Maidan of Foreign Affairs" foundation.
According to the results, over 40 Russian airline companies, as well as the Cambodian and Vietnamese air transporters "Cambodia Angkor Air" and "Jetstar Pacific" have been serving flights to the peninsula since it was occupied by Russia in 2014.
Despite the international ban on flights to the occupied zone, the Russian violating airlines are still serving flights to Simferopil using Airbus, Boeing and Bombardier planes.
Earlier, in cooperation with Ukraine Today, the whole list of vessels violating the ban on entering Crimean ports was revealed.
