U.S. President Joe Biden announced on Tuesday that the U.S. would become the latest country to ban all Russian planes from its airspace, joining Canada, the European Union and others in doing so amid the ongoing invasion of Ukraine.
The White House reportedly had held extensive talks with U.S. airlines about the issue in recent days and the ban will take effect by the end of Wednesday.
Russian flights were already effectively barred from U.S. destinations for the most part in recent days because of the bans on the use of Canadian and European airspace, putting pressure on the United States.
