U.S. President Joe Biden announced he would propose that U.S.- based assets of Russian oligarchs be seized and directed towards Ukraine.
Mr. Biden’s proposal was announced as part of a larger announcement that he was asking the U.S. Congress to approve an additional $33 billion dollars in security, humanitarian and economic assistance for Ukraine.
The U.S. Treasury has already sanctioned and blocked Russians’ aircraft and vessels worth over $1 billion. European Union countries had reported freezing over $30 billion in assets.
An IndiGo-operated ATR 72-600 aircraft landed at Kishangarh airport, using an approach process guided by India’s own satellite-based augmentation system.
It is named GAGAN, or GPS-aided GEO Augmented Navigation. With this trial landing, India joined a small group comprising the US, Japan and Europe with its own satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS).
While the SBAS developed by the US, Japan, Europe and India are already operational, there are several more under development.
