British Airways has reduced airfare on flights between Russia and Great Britain. According to the company's press service, this is done under the Future Size and Shape restructuring programme announced by British Airways in February this year. The programme has already been enacted for British internal flights and those in Austria, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Scandinavian countries, and Switzerland.
The changes affect economy class fares, if the passenger stays in Britain for at least 3 days. The new one-way economy class fare from St. Petersburg to London is now USD 280, that is, 2.5 times cheaper than before.
Russia's Ambassador to Belarus, Mikhail Babich, said that Moscow would treat any military intervention in the affairs of Belarus as an attack on Russia
