Azerbaijan closes airspace for Russia military aircraft

TEHRAN, May 02 (MNA) – Azerbaijani media report on the closure of the country’s airspace for Russian military aircraft.

The Azerbaijani edition of The Azeri Times reported that, following Turkey, neighboring Azerbaijan closed its airspace for Russian military aircraft. According to The Azeri Times, this is due to intentions to disrupt the transportation of military cargo between Russia and Armenia.

“Azerbaijan has closed its airspace to Russian military aircraft. As a result, Russian military aircraft carrying military supplies from Armenia to Russia were forced to fly over Iran and the Caspian Sea on their way to Rostov-on-Don," The Azeri Times reports.

Despite the appearance of such data, there are no official statements from the Azerbaijani and Russian representatives so far. This does not exclude the possibility that the information is provocative.

“Even if Azerbaijan really closed its airspace to Russian military aircraft, this is not critical, although it can definitely affect logistics. However, if the information is true, then Baku should think about the consequences,” an Avia.pro specialist notes.

According to the report, the Republic of Azerbaijan recently closed its airspace to Russian military aircraft, as a result of which Russian military aircraft carrying military equipment were forced to fly over Iran and the Caspian Sea over Rostov-on-Don. 

The Azeri President Ilham Aliyev, on Friday made allegations about the recent war with Armenia over the Nagorno-Karabakh region, saying that Russia supplied weapons to Armenia through Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Iran during the 2020 conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan.
