BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:45 P.M.) – The Maltese authorities have refused to allow Russia use their airspace in order to deliver supplies to the Venezuela, the U.S. Department of State said on Friday.

“We applaud the government of #Malta for refusing to allow Russian planes to use its airspace to supply the brutal former regime in #Venezuela. We call on all countries to follow Malta’s example to stop the Kremlin’s support for the dictator Maduro,” the new spokesperson for the Department of State, Morgan Ortagus, tweeted this morning.

Russia’s flight plan to Venezuela often includes flying over the Mediterranean Sea; however, with Malta denying Moscow access to their airspace, they will have to adjust their route in the future.

The Russian government recently delivered a large amount of aid to Venezuela, which was in line with the World Health Organization’s (WHO) regulations.

The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela is currently under heavy sanctions from the U.S. and several of their allies, while countries like Russia, China, Turkey, and Iran continue to aid the government of Nicolas Maduro.

I did wonder why the Russians would need to refuel in Malta on the way to Venezuela. If I go to Malta it’s as a tourist

Most aid comes in by sea.

It takes only 5 missiles to vaporize the motherfucking tiny h**l hole slave nation Malta. I suggest they consider that while obeying the Yankkkee master’s bidding.

_”It is narrated on the authority of Ibn ‘Umar (‘Abdullah b. ‘Umar) that the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) observed: Verily Islam started as something strange and it would again revert (to its old position) of being strange just as it started, and it would recede between the two mosques just as the serpent crawls back into its hole.”_
– Sahih Muslim Book 1 Hadith 271

That is your future so obey your prophet and go back to your snake pit.

Islamophobia is good since Islam calls to kill all kuffar.
In fact, I’m absolutely positive about doing a first use of the antimatter we produce on the Black Stone. Once disintegrated, there will be peace 🙂
I tolerate religions as long they’re peaceful. One calling for murdering people has to go, just like the Norse Mythology, the Aztecs’ and Hittites’ death cult.

Thus, they surely could build a powerful air force would they seize Mrs.Arafat’s money : it’s estimated Yasser, when he died, had $9.6-11B on Swiss banks accounts, stolen from the Fuckestinians 🙂

Guess how many An-124 Ruslan they can intercept??? Now let’s ban all US aircraft, including airlines, or any aircraft coming from+going to USA, from Russia’s airspace… One typical flightpath : Chicago-Dubai More about it : https://multimedia.scmp.com/news/world/article/2165980/flight-paths/index.html Then Russia REALLY pi$$es off the Yanks : air-carriers are always very tight on budget, Russia can simply disfavour air-carriers from unfriendly states or even force to re-route on last minute, or play the bad-cop in the air forcing US air-carriers to land, fully search the aircraft, etc etc etc… Imagine the Chi-City/Dubai A380 with 600 passenger forced to land in Sochi and everybody… Read more »

The Yankees? ROFL! They’re nothing! We created USA, as we created the UK in 1066AD, as we created the West. The rebirth of Israel comes from us, not so from the Brits since we are the ones who armed the Zionists to the teeth first, even giving them THE bomb, you know, the one that will plunge you all into a sea of fire if you pi$$ off the Israelis too much 🙂 Now remember this : Poitiers, 732AD! Never heard about Charles the Hammer? A Reconquista : Then, the Crusades : But we haven’t finished the job, nevertheless, we… Read more »
