President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky reported that Iran offered $80,000 of compensation to the families of Ukrainians deceased in PS752 crash. However, Ukraine finds this sum insufficient and it will strive for its increase as TSN.Tyzhden reported.

“Concerning the Iranian side, they offered $80,000 to each family, each suffered, each victim but we did not agree on it. I think that it is not the right things. If a woman says that husband was the only breadwinner and she has no work, while a child should enter the institute - $80,000 are not enough. However, of course, any money may measure the human life. But we will pressure to make the payments bigger,” he said.
