Ukrainian Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk has said the government will allocate UAH 200,000 (US$8,326) to the families of victims of a plane crash in Iran and ensure due implementation of the insurance payments under the Montreal Convention.
"Hideous pain of this tragedy will never fade away. We express deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of the victims. The state will provide comprehensive support and assistance, including legal and financial aid", he said, according to the Government portal.
Apart from that, according to Honcharuk, the Ukraine International Airlines in accordance with the collective agreement will make payments to the families of the crew members.
"Our diplomatic officials are already working on all tools available in the international legal field to obtain compensation from the Iranian side. I understand that no compensation will dull this pain, but Ukraine stands for justice," he said.
