President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has met the families of the Ukrainians killed in the 8 January air crash in Iran.
"I understand that no words of support will drown their infernal pain. The state will provide them with all the necessary assistance, including financial support. I understand that no payments will bring their relatives back to them. Perhaps the most important thing that the state can and must do for them is to give comprehensive answers regarding all the circumstances of the tragedy. I assured them that we, for our part, are doing everything possible to establish the truth. Ukraine will certainly learn it," Zelenskyy said in his Telegram channel.
Some 176 people died as a result of the Ukraine International Airlines Boeing 737 crash near Tehran on 8 January. There were 82 citizens of Iran, 63 Canadians, 11 Ukrainians (the crew and two passengers), 10 Swedes, four Afghanis, four Brits and three Germans.
