Ukraine React As Iran Admits Taking Down Plane




Ukraine’s President, Volodymyr Zelensky has reacted to Iran’s admission that it actually shot down the airline that killed over 170 passengers on Wednesday.

Naija News reports that Iran has admitted shooting the Ukrainian airline, but that it was unintentional.

According to the report which was released on Saturday morning, Iran said it unintentionally shot down the Ukrainian airliner that crashed this week killing 176 people, calling it an “unforgivable mistake”.

Reacting in a statement on Saturday, Zelensky said: “This morning was not a good one but it brought the truth. Even before the International Commission could finish its work, Iran admitted to shooting down the Ukrainian plane.

“But we insist on a full admission of guilt. We expect Iran to conduct a full and open investigation, bring those responsible to justice, return the bodies of the deceased, pay compensation and issue official apologies through diplomatic channels.

“We hope that the investigation will continue without artificial delays and obstacles. Our 45 professionals need full access and engagement to establish justice.”
