Still flying to Russia, any information?

Morning. Despite the announcement of closure of Russian airspace to international flights. Qatar are still flying to Moscow and St Petersburg and indeed selling ticket out of Russia. It is a long shot, but does anyone know if this is an agreement with Russia etc? Trying to get my wife home! Many thanks

Aeroflot's website says outbound passengers will still be allowed to leave.

I don't have any official confirmation but apparently these are considered charter flights and only Russian citizens are allowed to fly (I guess these are the flights to get them back home).
