Zelensky said why he did not immediately announce the Iranian strike on the Boeing 737


In an interview with Israeli TV, the President of Ukraine answered the question of why he did not immediately speak out about the attack on the plane of Ukraine’s International Airlines by the Iranian air defense complex. Recall that we are talking about a strike on a Boeing 737 with two anti-aircraft missiles.


Responsibility for this strike was assumed by the aerospace forces of the IRGC, whose command noted that the blame lies with the United States, which escalated the situation in the region. In Tehran, we recall, the strike was called a "fatal mistake" and was explained by the loss of communication between the air defense command post and thereby the calculation of the air defense system. The reasons for the loss of communication are still unclear.

According to Vladimir Zelensky, he did not immediately make an appeal about the Iranian attack on the Ukrainian Boeing, as he did not have strong evidence of Iran’s involvement in the attack on the airliner.

At the same time, Zelensky noted that "initially it was Iran’s strike on the plane that was considered as a priority version."

The President of Ukraine said that in the very first days after the tragedy he went to the relatives of the deceased Ukrainians and said: "We were shot down."
From an interview with Zelensky on Channel 9 of Israeli television:

I then told them (the relatives of the victims): I want you to know for sure that this is 100 percent not a technical error. And not a mistake of your relatives, and not a mistake of a professional crew. Of course, to completely calm them failed.

Then, as Zelensky himself notes, he announced the demand for compensation from the Iranian side.

Recall that there is still no data on the decoding of Boeing's flight recorders. January 20 Zelensky turned to Tehran with a request to transfer the "black boxes" of the liner to Kiev. So far, the recorders seem to remain in Iran. Earlier it was reported that Tehran intends to transfer them to French experts.

      I welcome Dmitry, Yes, I would say honestly - the team has not acted to make statements ... We would understand!
      And so, according to Mine, he himself did not understand what he had said.
      But, he demanded compensation ...

      Somehow in relation to Moscow, this logic works poorly for them. I remember that the United States did not immediately blame Iran ... And so I think that while "the owner did not work, his servant was silent silently"

          It’s enough for them that the air defense system is “originally from Russia”

        Took off the tongue. Right exactly for the USA. That “we are not talking about the downing,” and then “shot down”.

      Meanwhile, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said in an interview with Der Spiegel that a fighter who shot down a Ukrainian Boeing by mistake was detained and is in prison. So far, only in English:

    Also MN-17. Obama knows, but is silent. And all the "priorities" are issued against Russia.

    But what is there to say ..., I was waiting for instructions, like other world Jewish media ....
    Nevertheless, the Iranian general will not be forgiven you .. and do not think that brought down by your provocation that something will change ..

    Zelensky thought it was revenge for the plane that was shot down in Ukraine, which flew from Israel to Novosibirsk.

    If he was 100% sure that it was not a mistake of the pilots and the plane was shot down, then he didn’t even hint at once.
    It seems like he was waiting for the big uncles to say: “Iran is to blame” and what will be the reaction of Iran.
    I am sure that the IRGC could not do without the "mishandled Cossack"
    PS. Where did this expression come from? Who knows
