What is a no-fly zone?

A no-fly zone (NFZ), or airborne exclusion zone, is an area where certain aircraft are not allowed to fly.

Nature reserves also exist in civilian life. For example, planes are not allowed to fly over Disneyland, Buckingham Palace or the Taj Mahal.

The no-fly zone is also a military tactic used in wars since the 1990s.

What is the purpose of the military no-fly zone?

Military powers can establish an NFZ to control an area, usually within enemy territory.

The purpose of a no-fly zone is to prevent enemy aircraft from flying in specific areas by using military force.

Why does Ukraine want a no-fly zone?

Russian tanks rolled into Ukraine at 5am on Thursday, seizing the Chernobyl nuclear power plant on Thursday night.

On Friday morning, Russian tanks arrived in the capital Kyiv amid multiple explosions. The Ukrainians used weapons in defense, leading to bloody clashes.

According to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, at least 137 people were killed and 316 wounded on the first day of combat.

The use of Russian air strikes has led leading figures to demand that NATO introduce a no-fly zone over Ukraine.

Ukrainian MP Lesia Vasylenko told British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace, “We are at war. What we need now, and this is imperative to understand, we need to close the airspace above Ukraine.”
