The Cabinet issued a corresponding protocol order to the Infrastructure Ministry and State Enterprise UkSATSE at a special meeting, the RBC Ukraine news agency reported with reference to its own sources in the government.

"They have been ordered to impose a ban from 00:00 Kyiv time on May 29 on the use of Ukrainian airspace by aircraft registered in the Republic of Belarus," a source said.
