No new flights are expected from Moscow to Yerevan in the coming days, the Armenian Embassy reported on Facebook.

The diplomatic mission specified that flights would not be resumed until May 10.

As for the issues of reimbursing citizens for the costs of temporary residence, the embassy noted that any assistance is provided on the basis of existing opportunities. Now there are no such opportunities, Sputnik-Armenia reports.
