Liz Truss – 2022 Comments on Russian Airlines and Slots at UK Airports

The comments made by Liz Truss, the Foreign Secretary, on 19 May 2022.

As long as Putin continues his barbarous assault on Ukraine, we will continue to target the Russian economy. We’ve already closed our airspace to Russian airlines. Today we’re making sure they can’t cash in their lucrative landing slots at our airports. Every economic sanction reinforces our clear message to Putin – we will not stop until Ukraine prevails.
