The United States government is expected to ban Russian planes from entering its airspace in response to Moscow's actions in Ukraine, the Wall Street Journal reported citing people familiar with the matter.

According to the sources, Washington is set to issue an order prohibiting Russian-owned and Russian-operated airplanes from American airspace within the next 24 hours.

Earlier, the European Union and Canada introduced the same aviation restrictions against Russia, while Moscow responded with a tit-for-tat move. Meanwhile, United Airlines said that it temporarily suspended flying over Russia's airspace.
