As of March 12, Bermuda’s aviation authority has suspended all Russian licenses as it is “unable to confidently approve these aircraft as being airworthy” due to sanctions against Russia, which have affected "the ability to sustain safety oversight." It is estimated that the move will impact over 700 aircraft, according to Al Jazeera.
