Ryanair will fly to Kyiv and Lviv, and has no plans to operate flights to Kharkov or other Ukrainian cities. This was stated by Minister of infrastructure Volodymyr Omelian in an interview with “LigaBusinessInform”.
He noted that some airports are willing to pay the company for their cooperation.

For example, Kiev is ready to accept Ryanair even with lower financial offer than we wanted, but Ryanair said that while flying back not planning. They have a clear choice – Kiev and Lvov,” – said Omeljan.
