Cavusoglu conveyed the ban, which will stay in place for three months, to Moscow, according to local media.

Turkey have closed its airspace to Russian civilian and military planes flying to Syria, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has been quoted as saying by local media.

“We closed the airspace to Russia’s military planes – and even civilian ones – flying to Syria. They had until April, and we asked in March,” Turkish media quoted Cavusoglu as saying on Saturday.

Cavusoglu said he conveyed the decision to his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov, who then relayed it to President Vladimir Putin.|

--->In my opinion, the closure of the Turkish airspace will complicate the task of the Russian army, which is very present in Syria. Also, this measure might be put in place to avoid troops transfers via Turkey to Ukraine's battlefield. Russia is said to recruit fighters from Syria with the Wagner Group on the ground.
