#RUSSIAUKRAINE: Russian Forces Finally Take Over Ukraine Antonov Airport
Russian troops have seized control of the Antonov International Airport just outside of Kyiv in Ukraine.
Reports from CNN reporters in Ukraine confirmed that Antonov, a cargo airport, has been taken control of by Russian forces.
Natasha Bertrand, a CNN reporter, took to Twitter on Thursday.
“Breaking: @mchancecnn with Russian forces at the Antonov airport about 15 miles outside of Kyiv. “These troops you can see over here, they are Russian airborne forces. They have taken this airport,” Ms Bertrand tweeted.
The new developments come as Ukraine closed its airspace to all civil flights and European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) sending warnings about the bordering areas of Russia and Belarus because of military actions.
Reuters had reported the Ukraine State Air Traffic Services Enterprise’s closure of the country’s airspace and suspension of air traffic services.
