The aircraft was on its way from Tehran to Kyiv. The crash took place soon after the takeoff. Iranian media reported that, quoting the airport administration. The officials said that the reason for the crash was a "technical malfunction" of the plane's engine. The Ukrainian air company that owned the aircraft denied that there was such a malfunction; a pilot's mistake was ruled out, too.

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. Tehran expressed its deepest condolences to all those who lost their loved ones in the disaster.

Ukraine's leader Volodymyr Zelensky insisted that Kyiv expects prosecution of those responsible for the tragedy and compensation from Iran.
