"Iran will most likely send the black box from Ukrainian plane to France", reads the message.
The decision was made because of the delay in the response from the Ukrainian side.
The analysis of black boxes of the Ukrainian aircraft that crashed in Iran in January was postponed in April due to the coronavirus pandemic. The government of Iran sent Ukraine's Foreign Ministry a draft memorandum on mutual understanding, which foresees that Ukraine and families of the deceased refuse from the right to sue within this case.
Preiously, Deputy Foreign Minister of Ukraine Yevhen Yenin claimed that the state could turn to the UN International Court in the case of the crash of Ukraine's Boeing 737 in Iran.
Boeing 737 of Ukraine's International Airlines, flight PS752 crashed not far from Tehran on the night from January 7 to January 8. 176 people were aboard the aircraft, including 11 Ukrainians, two of which were passengers.

On January 11, General Staff of Iranian Armed Forces reported that the Ukrainian plane was shot down by an anti-aircraft missile launched by the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps; the troops misrecognized the target as a hostile object and opened fire.
