Russia's Aeroflot denies organising transport of migrants to Belarus

- Russian flag carrier Aeroflot AFLT.MM on Thursday denied any involvement in organising mass transportation of migrants to Belarus, responding to media reports that it could face EU sanctions over the crisis on the Belarus-Poland border.

"The information about Aeroflot's participation or assistance in the organisation of mass transportation of migrants to the territory of the Republic of Belarus is untrue," the company said in a statement.

Its shares fell earlier on Thursday after the reports on possible sanctions. nL8N2S21V5 nL8N2S169E
