Canada and Ukraine are unhappy with the final report of Iran on the downed plane

They said the report does not explain the reasons for the disaster.

The head of the Canadian Transportation Safety Authority, Katie Fox, said Iran’s final report on last year’s downing of a Ukrainian passenger plane did not explain the cause of the crash.

“The report describes what happened, but does not answer the question of why it happened,” Fox said at a press conference in Ottawa.

“We believe that the final report submitted by Iran yesterday is incomplete,” Fox added. “It has more questions than answers.”

On January 8, 2020, Ukraine International Airlines Boeing 737-800, en route to Kyiv, crashed shortly after departure from Tehran, killing all 176 people on board.

Three days later, the Islamic Republic admitted that its forces had mistakenly shot down the plane, firing two rockets.

In its final report, the Iranian Civil Aviation Organization noted that Iranian forces were on high alert amid escalating tensions with the United States.

According to Fox, this does not answer many questions about the causes of the disaster.

As a result of the disaster, 11 citizens of Ukraine were killed. Kyiv on Wednesday called the report “a cynical attempt to hide the true causes” of the tragedy.
