Aerospace company Boeing will suspend support for Russian airlines, a company spokesperson confirmed to CNN.
“We have suspended major operations in Moscow and temporarily closed our office in Kyiv. We are also suspending parts, maintenance and technical support services for Russian airlines. As the conflict continues, our teams are focused on ensuring the safety of our teammates in the region,” said the spokesperson in a statement.
Some context: Many countries have closed their airspace to all Russian airlines and aircraft as the invasion of Ukraine continues, and a number of international airlines have suspended flights in and out of the country.
US President Joe Biden announced the US would ban Russian aircraft from US airspace at his State of the Union address tonight.
