Iran promises to provide Ukraine with access to case file on downed UIA plane.

Iran has promised to provide the Ukrainian investigation with access to the case file on the Ukraine International Airlines (UIA) plane downed near Tehran in 2020, Deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine Gyunduz Mamedov has said.

"Relatives of victims #PS752 ask about the end of negotiations. We haven`t received any official confirmation of the trial start. Iran promised to provide us with access to the case file in a court in Tehran, and information on the crime qualification and the liability measures," Mamedov wrote on Twitter.

The third round of talks between Ukraine and Iran on the UIA plane shot down near Tehran in 2020 took place in Kyiv on June 2-3.

The Iranian side during the third round of negotiations declared its readiness to pay USD 150,000 in compensation to each family of those killed in the downing of the UIA plane.

The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said that the discussion of compensation is possible only after establishing all the circumstances of Iran's downing of the plane and bringing the perpetrators to justice. The ministry added that the specific amount of compensation should be the result of an agreement between the governments of all states whose citizens died in the plane crash, and not a unilateral decision.

As reported, on January 8, 2020, Ukraine International Airlines plane (Flight PS752) heading from Tehran to Kyiv crashed shortly after taking off from the Imam Khomeini International Airport. There were 176 people on board – nine crew members (all Ukrainians) and 167 passengers (citizens of Ukraine, Iran, Canada, Sweden, Afghanistan, Germany, and the UK). All of them died.
