Ukraine International Airlines to position 737 to Poland for evacuation flights.....

UIA plans to position a Boeing 737-900 to Poland.

As the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the war continues, the international airline of Ukraine is planning to position one of its aircraft to Poland to operate evacuation flights for Ukrainian citizens fleeing the horrendous onslaught from barbaric Russian forces. 

UIA says it aims to provide evacuation flights for Ukrainians from Lodz (LCJ) and Wroclaw (WRO) airports on a Boeing 737-900. The flights can accommodate up to 215 passengers. Plus they are also calling for humanitarian organizations to send them requests for shipments of humanitarian cargo to these airports.  The plane can take up to 18 000 kgs of cargo with a total volume of 103 m3. 

The airline is also offering aircraft for lease and hire as it seeks to earn money for the beleaguered nation as it battles for its very existence against the might of Russia.   

In another move, Russia has banned UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and a number of other key politicians from entering Russia over what it calls the UK's "hostile" stance on the war in Ukraine.

Foreign Secretary Liz Truss, Defence Secretary Ben Wallace,  Home Secretary Priti Patel, The Chancellor Rishi Suna, Deputy Prime Minister, Lord Chancellor, and Secretary of State for Justice Dominic Raab, Secretary of State for Transport Grant Shapps, Minister for the Armed Forces James Heappey, former British Prime Minister Theresa May and First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon have all been banned from entering Russia. The leader of the opposition Sir Keir Rodney Starmer hasn't been included on the list despite his previous remarks regarding the war and Putin.
