Türkiye’s planes stranded in Ukraine arrives at home base

Two Turkish planes, which were earlier stranded in Ukraine due to the closure of airspace there, have returned to Türkiye, the Turkish Defense Ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

In a previous statement, the ministry had said: “Two A400M aircraft of Türkiye, which landed in Ukraine to deliver humanitarian aid and evacuate our citizens, and stranded at Borispol airport due to the closure of the airspace, departed for their home base, Kayseri.”

Türkiye, internationally praised for its unique mediator role between Ukraine and Russia, has repeatedly called on Kyiv and Moscow to end the war through negotiations.
