BA261 div to Moscow.

Reported on Twitter in the last hour that BA261 London to Islamabad has diverted into Moscow after being unable to traverse airspace in the Belarus and Ukraine area. Not a fun day out for the crew and pax.

This got spotted earlier and ended up being talked about on the "main" Belarus thread.. Reroute, then a hold over Latvia possibly to get clearance into Russian airspace, then the diversion.

Anyhow as I type it looks like (from flightradar) they're just taxiing out for departure at DME.
