Iranian military admitted destruction of Ukrainian liner


The reason for the death of the passenger Boeing 737-800 Ukraine International Airlines was the mistake of the Iranian military.


Iranian Press TV quoted a statement by the Iranian Armed Forces General Staff:

The Ukrainian plane, crashed earlier this week near Tehran, was flying too close to a sensitive military facility and was shot down. The reason is the human factor.


Iran, represented by the head of the Foreign Ministry, Mohammad Javad Zarif, has recognized responsibility for the tragedy. On his Twitter page, he posted the following entry:

A sad day. Preliminary findings of an internal investigation conducted by the Air Force: the human factor in a crisis caused by US adventurism led to disaster. We deeply regret, we apologize and condolences to our people, the families of all the victims and other affected countries.


Iranian President Hassan Rouhani also made his statement, who expressed his condolences to the families of the victims and promised to complete the investigation of the incident and bring the perpetrators to justice:

We must complete the investigation to find out all the causes of the disaster and bring to justice those responsible for this unforgivable mistake.


It should be noted that the tragedy was provoked to a tremendous degree by the tension that arose as a result of the killing by the Americans of Iranian General Kassem Suleimani and Iran’s declarations of revenge.

A statement by the Iranian Armed Forces General Staff says that the Ukrainian Boeing was in close proximity to the important IRGC facility and in shape "resembled an enemy facility."

    If it had not yet rested at first, then almost well done would have been that they confessed. True, rather, if there was an opportunity to unlock further, they would probably unlock them? Looks like there was absolutely no such possibility. In general, a good example to some. Lying entails only a temporary solution to problems, but creates enormous risks in the long run.

      Here it is also necessary to take into account that Iran is a militarized country, therefore the military stand apart there, apparently, they were looking for ways to get out, but they did not find it, the authorities were informed.

        A week recognized and reported? Was sent a konarochny through Iraq? The authorities knew after 3 minutes, do not tell. In such authoritarian countries, it cannot be otherwise.

          Well, not a week, but two days, be fair, colleague! It is unpleasant to be guilty, and even at such a tense moment as a blow to the mattresses, and there are still few reasons for delaying recognition of reality. But glory to God was also recognized!

            Yes, I swung a little too much, I agree. Well, three days, we agree on a compromise. But it seems so much time has passed, so many events at once, for the most part not very.

            The Carlos Dispatcher, who allegedly worked at Kiev's Boryspil airport and tweeted under the pseudonym spainbuca that Ukrainian planes were chasing Malaysian Boeing, turned out to be a man named Jose Karos Barrios Sanchez, convicted in Spain and arrested in Romania for fraud.

                Well, if you consider me an expert in all matters, I will try to answer. This is the first time I hear about your Anna. I looked on the Internet, in general it is very similar to the "Leontief Boeing", the size of two football fields. I think it would be better if you all this conspiracy, about where she is, etc. did not remember. About "Carlos" is somehow more interesting, believable and fascinating. Naturally, I have no idea about the data. If radar data exist, I can assume that they will be presented at the upcoming trial.
                Sorry, but that’s all I can help you with.

                  It looks a little strange. You talk about a downed plane, but for the first time you hear about the dispatcher who brought him into the war zone. And you do not mind that she disappeared and that the commission is not interested in her fate, no one is looking for her?

                  Of course, I have no idea about the data. If the data from the radars exist, I can assume that they will be presented at the upcoming trial.

                  Before being presented in court as evidence, they must be examined by specialists. Data from radars always exists if they are not intentionally destroyed. For a better understanding of how this works, I recommend taking a look at the links:

                  http://ru6uo.narod.ru/Avia/Doc/16.htm

                  (Here about the organization of objective control);

                  - A training manual on the organization of objective flight control (here more about airborne).
                  Browse at your leisure, try to answer the questions - why are these data not transferred to the commission? Why is the commission not interested in the fate of the dispatcher?

                  Sorry, but that’s all I can help you with.

                  Thank you, hi I can handle it myself.

                    - Actually, it was you who remembered this plane here. Forgot already? And don’t worry so much for her, there will be a court, I hope that a question will arise on her and everything will become clear. Bear with a little, not too long left. As soon as something is known, you will be the first to whom I will immediately report it.

                        Today, for example, Portuguese motorcycle racer Paulo Gonçalves died in Daccar. A very tragic event. Unfortunately, unidentified Iraqis killed Saaf Ghali, the operator of the Ruptly video agency, in Iraq yesterday. Who else died or died? On this occasion, should I also explain something to you? Will you bring me all the cases you know? I don’t have enough time to answer all your questions. Let's talk about something more fun:
                        21-year-old Taekwondo player Kimia Alizade, the only Iranian athlete to win a medal at the Olympics, left the country for political reasons.

                        You do not use time rationally laughing Focus on the essentials. All the dead and immigrants are not interested, only in conjunction with this disaster. Get ready and you will succeed.
                        Pay attention to the background in the photo, it is a little uncharacteristic for civil aviation, and I was not looking specifically, this photo flew out first, it was from Radio Liberty. For some reason, the names of But and Yaroshenko came to mind.

                        Photo Booth Yaroshenko

                        Aren't you wondering why such a restrained reaction from the Ukrainian and Iranian sides?
                        In theory, Ukraine was supposed to act as a "united front" with the United States, and Iran, in turn, was more wary of "pro-American" Ukraine. But nothing like that happens. I am sure that time will pass and we will learn a lot of interesting things about Iranian-Ukrainian cooperation in the arms sector and rocketry in particular. I will not be surprised that the accuracy of the guidance of Iranian missiles has "Ukrainian roots."

                        New protests began in Tehran due to the refusal of the Iranian authorities to tell the truth about the downed Ukrainian Boeing.
                        The demonstrations have been going on for the second day in a row, despite the opposition of the security forces.
                        Crowds of people on the street near the university in Tehran, where yesterday they rallied against the Iranian authorities. Protesters chant: "They lie that our enemy America, in fact the enemy is right here."
                        People tore the portraits of Iranian general Suleymani, who was killed by the Americans earlier this month in Baghdad, and chanted “Death to the dictator” against Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khomeney.

                        Well, you send me incomprehensible questions, incomprehensible photos, etc. And this news is just on the topic of the article. Are you saying that this is not true? What does the "fosterling" have to do with it, look elsewhere. It's just that, I see, for some reason this is not advertised, incl. on that website. Although why, of course, is understandable. The demonstrations are not too numerous so far. In general, I am extremely surprised that even in such a country, people have a developed self-esteem.
                        And it is important that the demands for the resignation of those who lied about the Ukrainian plane are also made by the media, including pro-government, moderate and conservative. 
                        It turns out that not everywhere politicians can allow themselves to brazenly lie.

                        For guidance? You want to say that I have to believe at least one word of all these Iranian official sources, completely engaged and inventing more and more heresy. Yes, as far as I understand, he was there. It is forbidden? Particular indignation of these "figures" was caused by the fact that he was filming the actions of the Iranian security forces on the phone. Is that also prohibited? It looks like they have additional serious troubles planned, the ambassador cannot be delayed even for a minute. Are they not enough of all this shame that they have endured for the whole world over the past few days? And in general, the completely cowardly actions, the shelling of primitive ground-to-ground missiles, according to the principle "to whom God will send," are surprising, is a proof of that. I present the meeting of the best pilot of the "airspace forces of the IRGC "with the inferior pilot, for example, Israel ...

                        It looks like they are plotting additional serious troubles

                        They have had these troubles, if I am not mistaken, since 1979, one more, one less .... It just appeared one more justification for new sanctions.
                        You may not love Iran and love Israel, this is your personal matter. This has nothing to do with this situation.

          So Iran also does not refuse compensation. This is where it all ends. Everything else about "the countries involved and the world community" is just pompous chatter. How did Ukraine answer for the Tu-154? USSR for Korean Boeing?

    - It was not possible to hide ...- too many eyewitnesses turned out to be ... - Probably hundreds of witnesses saw missile launches, and even in the night sky ... -And dozens of witnesses, probably ...- were also photographed on their cell phones. ..- Probably the whole airport was watching all this ...
    - Two or three minutes of flight, at an altitude of 2 km ... - yes, here you can shoot down from automatic anti-aircraft guns ... and an air defense missile is even much more difficult ... - too low an altitude ... -What did Russia put Iran for such low targets ...- "Pantsir-S-1" or something like that ...
    - So from it only intentionally, purposefully can be brought down ...- by chance it will not work ...
    - So it’s not all clear with Iran ...- what is he doing at all ...

    Yes, there is nothing to guess, the Boeing was shot down by the same Buk as the Malaysian Boeing over the Donbas, only it was redeployed from Kursk to Iran, along with its brigade. And before that, he was dragged around Ukraine back and forth. For the show. Yes, of course, it was the same Assassin Beech, and the "horses", together with the Netherlands, will prove it, and Iran simply stipulates itself, deflecting the blow from Russia.

    Iranians are handsome, cool revenge on the Americans. Already in retaliation for their general, a hundred Iranians, 60 Canadians banged, even ten Ukrainians before the pile. Are they going to take revenge in that spirit? I hope he completed the punishment of the innocent, can I proceed to rewarding the uninvited?
