Bring us home: tourists stuck in Korea are asked to open the sky for them

Stuck in South Korea, Russian citizens recorded video appeals to the authorities asking them to open the sky for their removal to their homeland. People ask for help and homecoming.

Since March 31, more than 200 Russian citizens remain in the transit zone in Incheon, including children, pregnant women and the elderly. At the same time, tourists note that the majority were in Korea not on vacation, but on treatment, on a business trip or studying.

“Being hostages of the situation, we are forced to find on the territory of the airport without any previously promised support, without food and basic necessities,” the authors of the video said.

They note that from April 4, they received blankets, water and some food for two days - fruits and instant noodles. Now there are no more stocks. They also said that they are promised flights to Khabarovsk and Vladivostok every day, and they are canceled every time.

“Every minute we fall into despair from the thought that our state has forgotten about us,” the authors of the video message noted.

Flights from Khabarovsk and Vladivostok to Seoul for the export of Far Eastern tourists are again canceled. Aurora Airlines gets rejections for the implementation of special charters. For passengers, new rules have been introduced, according to which they must go through a separate registration through the website of the State Services. Lists of passengers will be compiled when all data is verified by law enforcement officers.

Check-in for a flight to Khabarovsk on State Services passed 107 passengers. According to a favorable forecast, the board will be able to fly for tourists only on April 10th. It was expected that more than 170 residents of the Khabarovsk Territory, Sakhalin, Kamchatka and other regions of the Far Eastern Federal District will be able to leave South Korea today, however, the Federal Air Transport Agency did not give permission for this. Sakhalin authorities asked for help Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova in this matter.

On April 6, the Federal Air Transport Agency issued Aurora permission for a charter flight, the board practically flew from Khabarovsk, but the agency sent a telegram to revoke permission. Do not give it for departures from other cities of the Far Eastern Federal District.
