A court in the Canadian province of Ontario has ordered to pay $107 million as compensation to the families of the six people who died in the plane crash of the Ukraine International Airlines in Teheran in 2020 as CBC TV reported.

“In a decision dated December 31, Belobaba awarded $100 million in punitive damages to be shared by the estates of the six victims. The decision awarded another $1 million to family members for the loss of guidance, care, and companionship, and $6 million for pain and suffering,” the message says.

As it was reported earlier, on January 8, 2020, the 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, which left no survivors.

On the morning of Saturday, January 11, the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces announced that a missile launched by the Islamic Revolutionary Guards military center hit the Ukrainian Boeing 737 plane.

The results of the decryption of information from the aircraft's flight recorders carried out in France confirmed that the disaster was the result of a missile attack.

On February 20, the Iranian Military Prosecutor's Office announced the completion of the investigation into the downing of Ukraine International Airlines plane.

In May, the Supreme Court of Ontario (Canada) recognized the crash of flight PS 752 of Ukraine International Airlines in Iran as a terrorist act.

However, as it was reported in June, Canadian official forensic examination of the UIA plane downed in Teheran did not find evidence that the aircraft was bagged on purpose.
