Tehran, December 30 According to a report by the Islamic Republic of Iran News Agency on the 30th, the Iranian government approved compensation to the families of the victims of the crashed passenger of Ukrainian International Airlines on the same day.

The report said that the Iranian government will compensate the families of the 176 victims on the passenger plane, and will compensate the families of each victim “without distinction as race and nationality” of 150,000 US dollars or the equivalent of euros. Specific compensation is the responsibility of Iran’s Ministry of Roads and Urban Development.

On January 8 this year, a Ukrainian Airlines Boeing 737-800 took off from Khomeini International Airport in Tehran, Iran, for Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, but crashed shortly after take-off. 167 passengers and 9 crew members on board survived. The Iranian military later issued a statement saying that the passenger plane was shot down “intentionally” by the Iranian military, and the accident was caused by “human error”.

Iran determines the compensation standard for the crash of the Ukrainian airliner. Each victim will pay 150,000 US dollars.

December 31 According to a report by the Islamic Republic of Iran News Agency, the Iranian government decided at a cabinet meeting on the 30th that it would pay 150,000 US dollars or the equivalent of euros to each victim of the Ukrainian airline crash in early January this year.

It is reported that the Iranian government will pay compensation to the families of the victims without distinction between race and nationality in accordance with international practice. Iran’s Ministry of Roads and Urban Development will be responsible for paying compensation to the families of each victim.

On January 8 this year, a Boeing passenger plane belonging to Ukrainian International Airlines from Tehran, the capital of Iran, to Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, crashed after taking off at Imam Khomeini International Airport in Tehran, killing all 176 people on board, including passengers and crew.

The reason for the plane crash was that the missile operator of the Iranian military made a mistake, treating the passenger plane after take-off as an “invasion” cruise missile, and then launched two missiles to intercept.
