Second one first, as this is a side topic. So what this means is that not only can Russian planes no longer fly and land in Ukraine but they can no longer fly over it. First, this means a further loss of several hundred million dollars for over flight charges. It means much further flights for all Ukrainian flights heading south or east, as this will be reciprocated by Russia. Finally, it means 1. a huge increase in the price of tickets for most Ukrainians as Aeroflot alone is such a huge carrier and main user of Kiev as a hub, that competition without Aeroflot there to keep prices down, will be gone. Lastly, as mentioned above, Aeroflot pays for half the bills of Kiev's airport, so banning Aeroflot ensures the closing of Kiev's main airport.
Now on to the rest, dear readers.
The Ukies were quite stupid (I know a shock) to include many European journalists into their black list. After all, freedom of the press, a "Western" value was declared as of prime importance to Ukraine, by Porky, who then started black listing reporters. In this case, of course, half of those black listed were British, French and Germans, including from the mouth piece of Downing Street, the BBC.
Within a few hours, complaints from around the world starting pouring in, and more importantly, from the West.
Having realized that he had screwed his puppet masters, Porky's regime quickly back tracked....well just on the Western journalists...the rest be damned. That was all the "freedom" loving West wanted. "Carry on".
The point is, yet one more in a very long line of hypocritical Western "values". As long as the Journalists are Russian, they can be banned, arrested, tortured, or killed (as a half dozen already have) while on assignment with big white letter "Press" on their jackets, the Western defenders of the press, could not care less.
So once again we get to see what Western exceptionalism means = hypocrisy.
