Ukrainian Foreign Ministry has announced the main goals that the Ukrainian side is going to achieve together with the Canadian relatives of those killed in the crash of a Boeing 737 in Iran. The statement was posted by Deputy Foreign Minister Yevhen Yenin on Facebook.
In particular, the injured party will use all international platforms and the media to remind Iran of its responsibilities:
to ensure an unbiased and impartial technical investigation into the circumstances of the disaster; to prosecute the entire chain of officials and servicemen involved in the accident, regardless of their status; to provide guarantees that such incidents will not recur in the future; to provide a decent level of monetary compensation to the relatives of the victims, regardless of their nationality.
As we reported earlier, on January 8, Boeing 737 of Ukraine's International Airlines (PS 752 flight) with 176 passengers aboard crashed in Tehran, not far from Imam Khomeini airport.
11 citizens of Ukraine died in the crash. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky reported that the passenger plane crash in the Iranian capital had left no survivors.
Initially, Iran denied that any claims of the plane being shot down by a missile made no sense. Later, the government and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps recognized that the aircraft was downed by a missile, as the country's anti-aircraft defense systems were on high alert.
