Iran will pay compensation to the families of those killed in the crash of the Ukrainian Boeing only after the investigation is completed and all the perpetrators are brought to justice.
"The ball is now on the Iranian side. Everyone is interested in the amount of compensation. I want to emphasize once again that compensation will be calculated only after Ukraine receives full information about the circumstances of the incident, bringing the perpetrators to justice and the Iranian side's apology," Yevgen Yenin said.
On July 31, it was reported that Iran took responsibility for the downing of Ukrainian Boeing 737 and agreed to pay compensation for it.
