Ukraine insists that Iran fulfills its main obligations related to the Boeing-737 crash, including the transfer of black boxes of the downed plane and the recognition of responsibility for the deaths. This was stated by Deputy Foreign Minister Yevhen Yenin on the air of Ukraine 24 TV channel.

"The position of the Ukrainian side remains unchanged. It is based on three priority things: ensuring the rule of international law, we insist that the Iranian side takes international responsibility for this tragedy; establishing justice, we must know the real causes of the catastrophe; bringing those who are guilty to justice," Yenin said.

He predicts two results of the investigation. In the first case, it may become clear that the plane was shot down as a result of human error, in the second - other causes of the crash may be established, and Ukraine also wants to know about them.

In addition, under the Chicago and Montreal Conventions, Iran is obliged to decipher black boxes immediately or, if it is technically impossible, to transfer them to other countries for decryption without imposing any conditions.

As we reported earlier, information spread by the media about the intentions of Iran to pass the black box of the Ukrainian Boeing, downed in January 2020, for decryption in France does not correspond to the reality.
