The list of the countries includes Argentina, South Africa, and many other friendly countries.
Russian PM Mikhail Mishustin announced on Monday that starting from 9 April anti-pandemic restrictions on charter and regular flights are to be removed.

"First of all, I will say a few words about the document signed today, which was eagerly awaited by the air transportation industry and, of course, by our citizens - starting from 9 April, we are lifting the restrictions meant to fight the coronavirus infection, which applied to our regular and charter flights between Russia and a number of other countries", he told legislators ahead of his report to the State Duma.

The PM noted that since infection levels are going down, it is time to resume air travel with multiple friendly countries.
Russian citizens had access to flights to only 15 countries, but now they will be able to book flights to Argentina, Brazil, China, Vietnam, Egypt, Serbia, Turlkey, Israel, Pakistan, Thailand, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and many other nations.
