Ukraine's government announced on 25 September 2015 it had decided to impose a ban on Russian airlines from 25 October, in a new wave of sanctions following Russia's annexation of Crimea and alledged support to the rebels in eastern Ukraine. The ban was also extended to Russian software being used by government agencies in Ukraine.

As a reaction, Russian prime minister Dmitri Medvedev declared on 28 September that the country's federal transport agency had decided to replicate the move, banning Ukrainian flights in Russia.
