Sergei Kovalyov, the president of Russia’s Federal Trade Union of Air Traffic Controllers, made the statement in a complaint sent to the Prosecutor General's Office earlier this week, Russian media reported.

Russia has about 30,000 flight dispatchers, implying 15,000 have been put on leave.

Russia’s aviation industry – highly dependent on Western technology and Western routes – has been among the hardest hit by sweeping sanctions triggered by Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.

The United States and its allies have banned the sale of planes and plane parts to Russia while the EU has banned Russia from using its airspace.
