Ryanair flight incident shouldn't be politicized - Russian PM

Russia's Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin (pictured) urged the international community on Thursday not to politicize the forced landing of the Ryanair flight, that carried a Belarusian opposition activist, in Minsk.

Mishustin stated that while Russia supports the calls for an independent and transparent international investigation by aviation authorities into the incident, it shouldn't be made into a political issue.

Earlier, Russia condemned actions of the West related to the Ryanair flight, labeling them as a "demonization of Belarus," while it asserted that the European Union didn't actually want to solve the situation in the country.
