RUSSIA has hit back at America’s decision to ban military flights over its airspace – demanding Donald Trump reconsider the action.

The Russian Foreign Ministry on Thursday told the United States to step back from a confrontation over military observation flights before the two countries became embroiled in another round of tit-for-tat retaliatory measures.

Washington has accused Russia of flouting the so-called Open Skies Treaty, an agreement designed to build confidence between the two countries’ militaries, and said it plans to take measures against Moscow.

The Wall Street Journal newspaper reported on Tuesday the action would include restricting Russian military flights over American territory.

This was in response to claims Moscow prevented US observation flights over its heavily militarised Baltic exclave of Kaliningrad.

Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told a news briefing on Thursday that Moscow would respond to any new US restrictions.

Ms Zakharova said: “Nobody has cancelled the principle of reciprocity in international relations.”

Tensions have been high between the two nations since August when a Russian plane flew over Donald Trump’s holiday destination.
