His plane is the only one that crosses the Ukrainian-Russian border without stopping on the territory of a third country.

Private aircraft “Falcon 900”, who is the godfather of Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukraine’s representative to the Humanities subgroup of the Minsk talks on Viktor Medvedchuk, regularly flies between Kyiv and Moscow directly.

This is stated in the investigation of the program “Schemes”, a joint project of Radio Liberty and “UA:First.”

Journalists recorded how the plane Medvedchuk flew in from Moscow on 14 November, the day before the protests in Kiev. “Falcon 900” crossed the border with the Bryansk region of the Russian Federation. Got off the plane, Viktor Medvedchuk and the motorcade left the airport.

The last time the plane crossed the Russian-Ukrainian border, on 23 October 2016. “Falcon 900” appeared on playtrade near the town of Anapa (Russian Federation), flew over the East of Ukraine and again in Bryansk oblast crossed the border. Half an hour later the plane was at the airport “Kiev”, he produced, Viktor Medvedchuk and his wife Oksana Marchenko.

After 4 days Medvedchuk attended the meeting of the international discussion club “Valdai” in Sochi. Speech of his godfather Putin, he listened in the front row.

Another fact of direct flights between Kiev and Moscow private aircraft “Falcon 900” journalists “Schemes” recorded in September 2016.

It should be noted that on 25 October 2015, the State aviation service of Ukraine adopted a decision on the full termination of air communication between Ukraine and the Russian Federation. Since all aircraft, including private, sent from Kiev to Moscow or in the opposite direction must stop on the territory of other countries, usually in Belarus. The only exception was made when from Russian captivity was freed by the people’s Deputy Nadezhda Savchenko.

Thus, the plane of the Medvedchuk – the only thing that crosses the Ukrainian-Russian border directly. Four months of observations of the crew of the “Schemes” did not record any other aircraft that have flown direct flights from Ukraine to the Russian Federation or in the opposite direction.

The State aviation service of Ukraine said that the complete termination of air communication between Kiev and Moscow remains unchanged. The Minister of infrastructure Vladimir Omelian said that the ban applies to the aircraft of the Ukrainian or Russian registration, or if there is a certificate of the operator in Russia or in Ukraine.

“Theoretically, the aircraft of another is subject to the consent of the Russian and Ukrainian authorities to carry out flights between the two countries. In fact, in 99 percent of cases, these flights are not permitted, so the communication goes via Minsk or other States,” he explained.

But the plane Medvedchuk has registered on the island of Aruba in the Caribbean island.
