Report Says Russia Will Have Direct Flights to Occupied Cyprus

NICOSIA – After first denying it, Russia is reportedly ready to send direct flights to an airport on the Turkish Cypriot-occupied northern third of the island, Turkey further siding with Russia after refusing to go along with European Union sanctions over the invasion of Ukraine.

That was reported by Russia’s Izvestia newspaper, while Turkish broadcaster NTV said the first flights would begin Nov. 15, marking the 39th anniversary of a self-declared republic no other country in the world apart from Turkey recognizes.

The newspaper said that Russia will open an office on the occupied side but said that since the airlines are private it doesn’t mean recognition of the isolated side by a member of the United Nations Security Council.

The flights were said being launched to benefit Russians who want to get to Cyprus but can’t under sanctions.


NICOSIA - The Coronavirus hasn't gone away – people are still being infected, hospitalized, intubated and dying – but it's not much on the minds of tourists flocking to Cyprus again even into the autumn so far.
