“There is a chance that we will reach a new agreement or do something to bring this agreement together,” he told the White House. “I think what`s going to happen is that we`re pulling out and they want to come and make a deal.” America`s open skies policy goes hand in hand with the globalization of airlines. With airlines` unlimited access to our partners` markets and the right to fly all intermediate points and crossing points, open-air agreements offer maximum flexibility for airline alliances. While the United States, as well as our allies and partners who are contracting parties, have fulfilled our treaty obligations and obligations, Russia has violated the treaty in various ways and without interruption for years. This is not a story reserved for the Open Skies Treaty, because Russia has unfortunately mastered many of its arms control obligations and obligations in series. Despite the ambition of the “open skies” treaty to build trust and trust by demonstrating, through unrestricted flyovers, that no party has anything to hide, Russia has systematically pretended to deviate from its commitments as it sees fit and to refuse or illegitimately restrict The observation flights of Open Skies whenever it wishes. In a move that could complicate President-elect Joe Biden`s options if he tries to retake the deal, the Trump administration is taking steps to eliminate the two specially equipped OC-135B aircraft that the United States has used for ski flights. The Open Skies Treaty came into force in January 2002 and about 34 countries have ratified it. It allows unarmed short-term reconnaissance flights with specially equipped aircraft throughout another country`s territory to collect data on troop deployments, military installations, etc. On Sunday, a U.S. State Department spokesman said six months have passed since the U.S. informed the countries parties to the agreement of their withdrawal in May.

This treaty is not related to the open skies agreements of civil aviation. “We refuse any attempt to justify a way out of this fundamental agreement,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grozchko told Russian state news agency RIA Novosti. The “open skies” agreement between the EU and the United States is an agreement on air services between the European Union (EU) and the United States. The agreement allows any Airline of the European Union and any airline of the United States to fly between every point of the European Union and any point of the United States. EU and US airlines are allowed to travel to another country after their first stop (fifth freedom). Since the EU is not considered a single zone within the meaning of the agreement, this in practice means that US airlines can fly between two points in the EU as long as this flight is the continuation of a flight that started in the US (. B for example, New York – London – Berlin). EU airlines can also fly between the US and third countries that are part of the common European airspace, such as Switzerland. EU and US airlines can fly all-cargo under the 7th Freedom Rights, which means that all-cargo flights by US airlines can be operated by an EU country to any other EU country and all-cargo flights can be operated by EU airlines between the US and any other country.

[1] Norway and Iceland joined the agreement from 2011 and their airlines enjoy the same rights as THE EU airlines. [2] The contract disappointed European airlines because they felt chosen for US airlines: while US airlines are allowed to operate domestic-EU flights (when it is an all-cargo flight or a passenger flight, if this is the second leg of a flight launched in the United States), European airlines are not allowed to fly in-house or acquire a controlling interest in a U.S. operator
