UFN all CPX flights and overflights of russian airspace including oceanic airspace are prohibited. If this results in the requirements for technical stops for fuel those shall be planned in advance and the entire flight filed as a manual pirep that includes the flight times and fuel burns for all legs of the flight. For example if I need a tech stop I will fly and record the flight times from A-B including any intermediate stops for refueling that are required enroute. Those times and fuel burns will all be added and submitted as part of the manual pirep. If anyone has any questions please ask. All other airspace restrictions above remain in effect.
