the Russian government. The plane of the Russian Prime Minister Dmitry
Medvedev, flying from Sochi was not allowed to land at the capital's
airports due to weather conditions. Medvedev's press secretary, Natalya Timakova, said the head of the government could not
land due to "weather conditions", RIA Novosti reports.
