U.S. Department of State praises Maltese Government for its stand

The US Department of State, through its speaker, Morgan Ortagus, praised the Maltese Government for refusing Maltese airspace to two Russian military planes due to fly from Syria to Venezuela.

The news was reported by Buzzfeed News and confirmed by TVM. Russia had requested permission to fly two military planes from Syria to Caracas and back. According to the Russian request, the flights were humanitarian in nature intended to carry food supplies, doctors, technicians and engineers needed by Russian diplomats in Venezuela. It was reported that none of the planes were carrying weapons, explosives or hazardous materials. A few weeks before, Malta had approved a similar request from Russia and Russian military airplanes were sighted at the airport of the capital of Venezuela, Caracas.
