Ireland to close its airspace to Russian planes

Ireland will close off its airspace to all Russian aircraft as the invasion of Ukraine continues.

On Sunday morning, Minister for Foreign Affairs Simon Coveney confirmed that Ireland will move to shut off the country’s airspace to Russian planes.

He tweeted: “Shocking Russian attacks on Ukraine overnight. Ireland will move to shut off Irish airspace to all Russian aircraft.”

Mr Coveney also called on other European Union countries to do the same.

Various European countries – including the Czech Republic, Slovenia and the Baltic nations of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania – have already decided to close their airspace to Russian airlines.
