UKRAINE’S ATTEMPT TO SEIZE RUSSIAN AIRCRAFT FLYING TO CRIMEA

A brief from Clifford Chance reports that in September a Ukrainian court at the request of the prosecutor’s office for the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol (currently located in Kiev) issued an order to seize 65 aircraft operated by Russian airlines, as they are flying to Crimea in violation of Ukrainian laws.  In November, another 44 aircraft were added to this list of ‘seized’ aircraft.  The briefing summarises potential legal implications of these events for English law leases with Russian airlines

I had omitted the following link (as it did not seem to generate much interest!), but it seemed time to add it again and say that, if you would like to make a (polite) gesture and help me with my removal and computer costs, I have a page at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/KoIvM842y
