President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky promises to continue to put pressure on Iran to punish those responsible for the downing of Ukrainian Boeing 737. This was voiced by the head of state in his interview to Israeli Channel9.

“We will ensure that all those responsible are punished. I believe that we took several important steps that gave us the opportunity to put pressure on the Iranian side, and they admitted that this was not a technical breakdown or mistake of our crew and the plane which, you know, was made in 2016, a fairly new aircraft," Zelensky said.

According to him, the version excluding the attack was proposed by the Ukrainian Embassy. But the Ukrainian side was sure that the cause of the crash could not be technical errors of the crew, or malfunctions, the wrong course or unprofessional control of the aircraft.

Zelensky noted that it was under pressure from Ukraine that Iran provided evidence, on the basis of which it was concluded that the plane was shot down by a missile.

Iran asked Canada to participate in the loading and analysis of the data from black boxes of Ukrainian Boeing 737 crashed in Tehran.

The Iranian authorities invited Canadian Transport Safety Board to participate in the decrypting of data from the black boxes of Ukraine International Airlines plane. The black boxes of Boeing 737 kept in Iran and the Canadian experts do not exclude that the process of decrypting will take place there.

Canada will send the second group of investigators for check of the recorders in any place, where the decrypting is going to take place.

The Iran’s officials expressed controversial comments about whether they would send the data on flight and tape recorders from the cabin of the plane abroad. The preliminary report of the Iranian Civil Aviation Organization states that Iranian officials asked French and the U.S. authorities to send them modern equipment for receiving of data in Iran.

It is supposed that Iran decided not to pass the recorder to other country, fearing that extra details of the crash would appear, including data of 20 seconds between hit of the first and the second missiles at Boeing 737.

Canada’s government stated that the black boxes should be passed to France for decrypting.
