This is reported by TASS with reference to the press service of the Federal Air Transport Agency.

"Rosaviatsia appealed to the aviation authorities of Nepal with a request to provide assistance and provide permission for Aeroflot to operate the flight with the aim of returning the Russians," the message says.

The press service noted that there is no air communication between Russia and Nepal.

“All Russian citizens traveled to Nepal through third countries by foreign airlines at their own peril and risk, despite all the warnings previously issued by the Russian competent authorities to refrain from such travel,” the department said.

More than 270 Russians are in Nepal, according to the Russian embassy. 

Nepal suspended international flights on May 6 due to the worsening epidemiological situation. The Russian embassy urged the Russians to leave the country promptly.
