“I can confirm that most of Latin America was covered by the repatriation program. However, we do not forget about the remaining Russians in Central America and Ecuador where no repatriation flights have been sent yet. We hope that soon we will be able to tell them good news. Everything’s in the works,” she said.

Russia began gradually restricting international air travel on February 1, while all flights except for repatriation, mail and cargo ones were suspended on March 27.
