Moldova has resumed flights in its airspace

For several hours it was closed to civilian aircraft. The Moldovan airspace was closed on Tuesday for several hours for civil aviation aircraft.

This was announced by the national air carrier Air Moldova and the Aviation Administration of Moldova. The Civil Aviation Authority of Moldova stated that at 11:24 a.m. local time, the country's airspace was closed "to ensure the safety of civil aircraft flights." Flights in the skies of Moldova resumed 3 hours later, at 14:47.

On Monday, Moldovan President Maia Sandu accused Russia of plotting to overthrow the country's government. Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky spoke about the Russian conspiracy to change the Moldovan government last week, referring to Ukrainian intelligence data. A few days later, the Moldovan government resigned.

The White House stressed on February 13 that reports that Russian President Vladimir Putin is plotting a coup in Moldova "cause deep concern".

On February 10, Moldova reported that a Russian missile violated its airspace during an attack on Ukrainian infrastructure, and summoned the Russian ambassador, protesting to him.
