Russia’s Federal Air Transport Agency recommended that airlines with aircraft in foreign registries suspend international flights on March 6 and Russia-bound flights from abroad on March 8. 

Aeroflot suspended all flights abroad on March 8, except for those to Minsk, due to the risks that its planes may be detained abroad as part of sanctions against Russia for its military operation in Ukraine. 

Aeroflot then said, "To reduce risks for passengers of inability to use return flights to Russia  Aeroflot, starting from 6 March, will stop admitting on international flights passengers holding return tickets with the return segment to Russia dated after 8 March 2022. Passengers of international flights holding one-way tickets with departure from Russia will be admitted for carriage until the moment of flights suspension."
