His call to the State Duma (Russia’s lower house of parliament) also demnaded that US planes are closed to Russian airspace.

“I think it would be very objective, if the State Duma made a statement and suggested the government break diplomatic relations and close (Russia’s) airspace to US flights,” he said on Friday during a State Duma session.

“They’ve (the US) got some nerve! We should issue this statement (about cutting diplomatic relations) at least on behalf of the State Duma. Believe me, it is necessary to do this – to break diplomatic relations if we are strong and sovereign, along with denying their planes access to (Russian) airspace,” the lawmaker demanded.
