What’s behind this plane?
Vladimir Putin (69) When bombs rained down on Ukraine, people fled in fear to bunkers and shelters – a Russian government plane flying from St. Petersburg to the United States.
Ilyushin-96-300 flew around Europe (sanctions ban Russian flights over EU territory) and now flies over Canada. Destination: Washington D.C.
This is evidenced by data from Flightradar24.
It is not known who is on board. But the truth is: the engine needs a special permit to be allowed to fly in Canadian and US airspace – because in fact they also have a no-fly zone here.
According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, the diplomats are to be brought back to Moscow with the machine.
However, according to US internal affairs, there has been direct contact between the US and Russian Ministries of Defense since Tuesday to prevent “false judgments, military incidents and escalations”.
The link was established on March 1, a senior U.S. military official who declined to be named told Reuters.
