Earlier today, the ministry said that the two planes had started moving to their main base in Kayseri.
She added that the two planes were heading to Ukraine to provide humanitarian aid and evacuate citizens, and then got stuck at Borispol airport due to Ukraine closing its airspace.

Last March, Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar announced that two A400M Turkish transport planes were still at Borispol airport in Ukraine, after they went there on February 24, for the purposes of humanitarian assistance and the evacuation of Turkish citizens.
On February 24, Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine, followed by international rejection and economic sanctions on Moscow, which requires Kyiv to abandon plans to join military entities to end its operation, which the latter considers an “interference” in its sovereignty.
