Should not be an issue unless you have recent belorussian entry stamps.

Seems like US OTA and Airlines are banned from selling flights to Russia.

When I search TK it shows paid fares, but when I search with miles, it kind of shows amounts for certain dates but no flights (I didn't try using a VPN to see if results are different if I search from outside US).

Are any flights to Russia available nowadays by redeeming points as a single itinerary originating in the US? Any issue entering Russia with multiple Ukraine entry stamps?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I would recommend only purchasing a one way ticket...

You are able to book with TK miles on their website, not sure why it's not working for you.

I don't know about entering Russia with Ukrainian stamps, but the other way around is a big headache, so consider getting a second passport if you plan on going to Ukraine in the future.

Ex-US?

I didn't try on the website. Tried on the app. Showed Ex-IST, but not Ex-JFK.







It does show revenue fares JFK-VKO

Working fine on the website for flights from US-VKO.

If you select promotional fares when searching on the app, it won't show any flights if there's no saver availability for that date.
