Moldova stands out, no flights at all over the last couple of days, I think it is a NATO member but not EU but it does have the disputed Transnistria area held by Russia.
Then France, Spain dragging their heels.

A bit late to the party. Looking at the map above itís a bit pointless anyway as thereís no route through from Russia.

I did note some flights out of Switzerland Moscow bound so it will hinder such flights.

The idea is to bring domestic pressure on Putin. By making Joe Russian aware of what his government has done, the argument is that Putin's position is weakened.

There is going to have to be a very complicated repatriation operation by the Russians to repatriate Russian citizens from many holidays destinations, for example the Canary Islands 🤔.
