Moscow authorities have introduced a ban on all Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) flying over the city except those necessary for state needs, APA reports citing TASS.
The protocol on the matter was signed during a meeting of the Moscow crisis center, the City Hall told TASS.
"The document signed regulates the order of issuing permits for the flights of UAVs over the city. Such permits will now be issued only for government needs," the authorities said.
Additionally, during the meeting it was decided to bolster work on intercepting illegal drone flights and holding individuals and organizations liable for violating airspace rules and regulations.
