Aeroflot will start evacuating Russians from Istanbul on July 17, a spokesman for the air carrier told TASS on Saturday.

"Tomorrow, on July 17, Flight SU2134 Moscow - Istanbul will take off on schedule - at 9:25pm. The aircraft will fly empty to Istanbul, collect passengers from Turkey around 1am local time and return to Moscow on July 18," he said.

Flight Su2142 will also arrive to Antalya from Moscow on July 18.

Russia has temporarily suspended flights to Turkey. Russian aviation agency Rosaviatsiya said that suspension will remain in force until circumstances of the political situation in Turkey are clarified. At the same time, Russian and Turkish air carriers many continue performing flights from Turkey, Rosaviatsiya noted.

A group of insurgents attempted a coup in Turkey overnight to Saturday. Bombs were dropped on the parliament building and the presidential palace in Ankara. According to Turkey’s prime minister, 161 people died and 1,440 more were injured, not including participants in the coup attempt.

Turkish authorities said that 2,839 military were detained after the coup attempt.
