Russia does not halt flights evacuating compatriots from foreign countries, but suspends them to have a clear understanding about the number of evacuees and the venues of their accommodation, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Tatiana Golikova told reporters on Saturday, APA reports citing TASS.

"Why have we called a temporary timeout in evacuation of our citizens from abroad? The temporary timeout is two days, Saturday and Sunday. We need to have a clear idea about who will arrive in the territory of the Russian Federation, what country [they arrive] from, how many of them and where [they should arrive]," she said.
