MOSCOW (Reuters) - Moscow's Domodedovo airport has restricted arrivals and departures, Russian news agencies reported on Monday.

The step was taken "in order to ensure additional flight safety measures", TASS and RIA said, citing the airport's press service.

Arrivals and departures from Moscow's Vnukovo airport were suspended on Monday after a Ukrainian drone had been jammed over Moscow region.
