Portugal has closed its airspace to Russian airlines in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
The Portuguese Ministry for Foreign Affairs announced the closure in a tweet on Sunday, saying it was being taken “in conjunction with our European partners and in response to Russia’s aggression against Ukraine.”
The country will also equip Ukraine with “military equipment such as waistcoats, helmets, night vision goggles, grenades, various ammunition, portable radios and G3 automatic rifles,” the ministry tweeted.
Portugal joins a slew of European nations who have announced closing their airspaces to Russia, including Germany, Italy, France and Spain.
