"We are now developing the rules taking into account European experience. Our Ukrainian specialists who we have been working with since the start of the pandemic are elaborating these rules. I think that this week we should have more or less finalized, clear and specific rules that we will immediately make public," he told a briefing on June 4.

"The rules will be developed taking into account experience and requirements that will be set by our European partners or other countries where international flights have resumed. The rules will be developed, approved, and published," the minister added.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Ukrainian Infrastructure Minister Vladyslav Kryklii on June 3 said that Ukraine would gradually resume air transportation services. So, domestic flights will be relaunched from June 5, while international routes will start operating from June 15.
