High ticket prices of MAU airlines, owned by Igor Kolomoisky, forced the Ukrainian presidential delegation to travel to the session of the UN General Assembly via Moscow by Aeroflot, an anonymous source told “Politnavigator”.

Currently, according to aviago.com.ua the cost of flight from Kiev to New York by Aeroflot with a connection in Moscow is 10,441 UAH, the cost of a direct MAU flight– 31,875 UAH.

According to the decision of the Security Council, the government of Ukraine adopted a decision to ban flights of Russian airlines, particularly Aeroflot and Transaero to Ukraine.

“Russian planes with Russian flags have no business being at the Ukrainian airports,” – said Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk at the meeting of the cabinet on Friday, September 25.

For now Russian airlines continue flights between Ukraine and Russia.
