“Taken for a cruise missile”: IRGC claimed responsibility for the downed liner


The Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), whose rocket hit a passenger airliner of Ukraine’s International Airlines, took full responsibility for the disaster.


This was announced at a specially assembled press conference by the commander of the space forces of the IRGC Amir Ali Hajizade.
According to him, the Corps will obey any decision of the Iranian authorities, whatever it may be.

Earlier, the republic’s Armed Forces General Staff recognized that the Ukrainian Boeing was inadvertently shot down by an Iranian missile in anticipation of an attack, including by air, from the United States.

The passenger plane, taking off from Tehran's international airport and heading to Kiev, ran near one of the Iranian military facilities, and in the absence of communications, the air defense operator mistook Boeing for an American cruise missile.

After Iran pleaded guilty to the death of a passenger plane, President Hassan Rouhani apologized and condolences to the families of those killed in the crash and assured that the republic would pay material compensation.

Recall that the tragedy occurred against the backdrop of tensions between Tehran and Washington, which arose as a result of the killing by Americans of the head of Al-Quds, General Kassem Suleimani near Baghdad.

    Although a lot of ambiguities remained, the Iranians quickly figured out and found the courage to admit the unintentional downing of the Ukrainian Boeing.
    Probably, the Iranians are sincerely truthful in participating in the crash of the Ukrainian airliner also because Tehran is completely independent in its policy and completely NOT dependent on the lying and hypocritical "world hegemon (how pathologically deceitful is the treacherous" Ukraine "....)" ?!

        You have obvious gaps with the history of technology and physics, of course, cmonman, but, in principle, I completely agree on the significant contribution of multinational citizens of the USA and the USA to these spheres of human life!
        I always considered American engineering to be one of the most advanced (and, as, in essence, to documents, the Soviet industrial engineer, I still study and creatively adopt the approaches and methods of prominent American engineers and industry organizers. yes )! good

        But, in this case, our Baltimore colleague, you’ve obviously messed up, you’ve lost your way - we’re not talking about electrical engineering and your favorite popcorn (I don’t eat it - I love our seeds, but I don’t condemn you at all for being addicted to popcorn ! wink ), but about the pathological (harmful to the body, literally and figuratively), anti-people and anti-state, total American dependence of Ukraine on the false and hypocritical aggressive POLITICS of Washington, which in the post-Soviet decades has turned into a sort of global “elephant in the china shop”, even irrationally - recklessly "shooting himself in the foot" and ready to light the fire of the Third World! request

        I’m no less than yours, cmonman, upset that the American "partners" behave in a non-businesslike way and in such a (non-partnering manner !!!) openly hostile to the working majority of the multinational Ukrainian population of the current post-maid American colony "Ukraine", by betting on an aggressive parasitic minority of farmer outcasts, outright degenerates and misanthropists! negative

        Honestly, I’m terribly disappointed - I used to believe that the US is ruled by more intelligent and far-sighted people who sincerely care about prosperity (in the long run a priori impossible without mutually beneficial international cooperation!) and the international image of their country, politicians-statesmen, and not temporary-politicians with the same miserable small-town thinking, which the destructive anti-statesmen Gorby, EBN, absolutely ALL ukrozreziki (and frankly unconstitutional "Maidan" proteges of the State Department demonstrated and demonstrate)! , Shushkevich, and the current, disastrously with the "Neolotvinnim", Belarusian "father"!

          And I, dear Pishchak, don’t eat popcorn, I can’t even stand it!
          We won’t discuss the history of physics / chemistry (and I don’t like to argue either). Let's talk about Ukraine (within the moderator) and, if time remains (grandchildren, another day off), then about the USA.
          As the Americans say, stay in my shoes. Have you tried to put yourself in the place of Ukraine? Yes, they drove off their president, but there was nothing! The main slogan of the Maidan was the word "Tired!". Not Tired, Not Tired, but Tired. Tired of everything - corrupt power, corrupt courts, police. And they did the right thing to take to the streets. And then there’s the loss of Crimea and Donbass. Who will help? USA, Europe. In the United States and Europe, they even very much welcome the people’s speech against their objectionable rights, although in the USA itself these speeches have been severely suppressed for many decades (separate conversation). Now tell me - where in Ukraine will competent politicians / economists / managers of the demo-community, which was formed recently, come from? The West and the USA studied this for about 200 years, the Baltic states were able to almost immediately (experience was), and Ukraine and Russia did not. It takes several generations to grow their managers. And as in any young country where the national was suppressed, after freedom this healthy nationalism (nationalism is a normal feeling) turned into national extremism. And this is bad, but understandable. Now the state itself, Ukraine, must bring this extremism to reasonable boundaries. How? I don’t know, but what have the Americans to do with it?
          Sorry, you have to run - the grandchildren have come.
          Have a nice day, let's continue ....

            Excuse for troubling, hi I didn’t want to interfere in your conversation, but the phrase -

            The West and the USA studied this for about 200 years, the Baltic states were able to almost immediately (experience was), and Ukraine and Russia did not.

            Could you tell me in more detail what the Baltic states could do and where did she get experience? Hello to the grandchildren. hi

            The funny thing, dear Сmonman, is that in the former Ukraine, in the current “Ukraine” amerocolony, I usually wear American shoes - light and comfortable, elegant and very practical sneakers of my favorite brand, which in everyday wear fully justify their high enough (for our Ukrainian realities - with the hyper-cost of basic foodstuffs and, disproportionate to the income of the majority of the population, megawise prices for housing and communal services, galloping de-industrialization-unemployment and ugly debt growth Wage - disproportionately low in the majority of Ukrainian workers), the market-price! yes

            But, speaking in American terms, encourage you in my "Ukrainian shoes".
            Your distorted view of the American layman on the anti-people anti-constitutional pro-American “Maidan” coup d'état, committed by an aggressive misanthropic minority (Galitsai brought and “come in large numbers”, and since Soviet times settled in Kiev (sort of a multi-story big village) farmers marginalized with “God” "educated from the" picked up "Selyuk request ) with the most active help in the preparation and conduct of American and pan-European special services, "under the roof" of the American and European government officials who were fluttering on the Maidan (the deputy secretary of the State Department, Vic Nuland, was even publicly idiotic - she distributed cookies on the "Maidan"! negative ), not at all surprising!

            So you, the "international community", this anti-people Bandera-Nazi Sabbath - the "Euro Maidan" coup pervertedly-deceitfully presented "biased" non-living media!
            US Deputy Secretary of State Nuland and Ambassador Payette (shamelessly "tearing the EU") "chose" - they assigned us, occupied by amerocholites-Galician Bandera-Nazis, the multinational Ukrainian population of their own (they are "scum, aiding scandalous scoundrels" in translation!) to posts in the Washington puppet "Maidan government"!
            Only - some pro-American politicians-temporary workers, thieves-corrupt officials, Washington "democratizers" -neo-colonizers "maydanno" partially replaced with other, even more impudent and more mean (already banditly, "blood-bound" by our law enforcement officers and ours, " parasichnyh (ordinary) "fellow citizens!), pro-American politicians, temporary workers, bandits, corrupt! request

            The statehoods of Russian Civilization, even according to the “new calendar” introduced by the west-oriented Tsar Peter the Great, are more than a thousand years old - you will agree, Cmonman, is still much more than just a little over three centuries of the multicolonial history of the formation of the young American state with its inextricable tradition of individual freedom and slavery (from which, pale-faced - white slaves from the Old World and red-skinned aborigines, and only then black slaves from Africa), this young state began), and the ongoing bor to racial segregation (advanced video and unmotivated committed undemocratic shootings of unarmed niggers ( "blacks") heavily armed cops full Internet)!
            So who will teach anyone who will teach us state-building and tolerance (the American States would learn from the Soviet Union real national politics when citizens of all nationalities had each other like brothers and sisters!) - this is a big question! wink

            But, alas, starting with a loyal report to the amerepozu Bush Sr. of the vile Communist Party renegades-judas: EBN, Kravchuk and Shushkevich, the gangster-thieves' deriban of our public property brought up unprincipled human scum without morality and honor!
            In pursuit of their neocolonial goals on the European continent (and others too!), The Washington authorities are betting on the elimination of real politicians, economists and managers, on leading frank scum to colonized countries and raising generations of thoughtless slaves-meek and uninitiated consumers of low-grade products " for the countries of the third (fourth) world ", and not for cultivating in the American" deceased "countries" generations of literate politicians / economists / managers "! request
            What “real politicians / economists / managers of the“ American “colonial type” really stands for, you can see from the anti-people and anti-state destructive “activities” in Ukraine of young broilers from the Soros incubator (and other “maidan” parish “Ukrainian” mega-corruption U.S. citizens) and deceitful politicians and executives like a scammer, a lawyer without a diploma, Zvarych, the thieving "financier" Dzharesko, and the deadly "doctor" Suprun from the nationalist Amero-Ukrainian diaspora and their current "chicks" kov "), completely floating in the wake of the interests of the United States that raised them, but absolutely contrary to the interests of" their country "and the aspirations of" their fellow citizens "! negative

            And if Russia, thanks to the “Putin phenomenon”, managed to stay on the edge of the abyss and even move a little away from the disastrous edge (like Belarus, thanks to the “Lukashenko phenomenon”, until recently, it was possible, but now the same Lukashenko, could not stand the test power ", and throws" his estate "on the disastrous" Ukrainian path "!).
            That, initially chose a destructive MONO-nationalist course in the a priori MULTIPLE ex-USSR, who made a bet on his worst version, Galician cave Bandera-Nazism, the Ukrainian "nationally visible" klepto-authorities (from the number raised by the Soviet government "from the dirt" to the "elite party farm activist", the marginal undereducated Selyuk-blind performers, with a complete lack of independent, critical thinking) and limited horizons, and even without stable moral principles, and even the concept of it! request ) throwing into the abyss, the land of rabid anti-people’s deriban and theft, “under the guarantee” and leadership, in every possible way condoning the robbery and destruction of the Soviet Civilization, sly “universal people” from the USA and Pan-Europe, seemed to be a step towards the “rooted in independence (building independence)”!

              So from my “Ukrainian shoes” I see and comprehensively feel hostile to the majority of our multinational population, the murderous “Washington paw” and the Washington anti-people “posipak”, who are engaged in the final razdriban, “hot” and “(x, d) malodny, planted on our working necks” "the genocide of the population and the sale of everything that is more or less valuable, still preserved from the enormous Soviet Heritage (since nothing worthwhile and, in general, nothing good, the nationalist klepto authorities could not create - they only destroyed and destroyed so they built up our Soviet people and our Soviet power!
              Without arrogant interference and indulgence - without the help of the banderofascists on the part of Fashington, the USA (and the vassal of Europe), a bloody civil war in Ukraine would not have happened! And you write "what do the Americans have to do with it"?
              Not "Americans", but the American authorities - even with this, without them, without the help of the Washington amerofascists, the Galician Bandera-fascists could not have prepared, carried out an anti-people-anti-state Nazi coup in Ukraine and still held in Kiev and "fed the power"!

              All the best to you, our magnanimous and blissfully naive Baltimore colleague!
              None of the sane people blame you personally or ordinary Americans for anything - you, too, cannot influence the policy of your authorities!
              After all, even you elect your president not personally, by direct vote, but indirectly, through a college of some "electors" there, which leads to the well-known "American paradoxes" when the presidency is "democratic (albeit not so impudently," through the American "political technology for the natives" - the "color revolution", but still, it’s all ... not too democratic in essence ?!) "a candidate from a minority of voters comes out, alas! request
              Your American total surveillance of citizens and mass snitching "in the law", "Maidan" ameromarionettes instilled in us by your authorities, are just trying to introduce us here as well ... and curse, they say, the wrong- "invisible", for the most part, people they got it! smile
              No offense, Mr. Cmonman, okay ?! After all, what are we talking about the amerocolonial "Ukrainian shoes" and the role of the amerofascist "democratic" Washington in this "nezalezhnitsky" amerozlooschast in the middle of Europe ?! wink

              Health and well-being to you, dear Сmonman, and to your close ones!
              Your "beloved" beloved aka Pishchak (Farsi cat).

    Iran honestly admitted to a bitter and tragic mistake, a courageous government. About ichthamnet - I am silent.
    And anyway - why is my comment first? Hey people! What is quiet! No one to blame, or what?

    Well, thank God, the Iranians did not declare that the Israeli fighter was hiding behind the Ukrainian side.

      I think it would be a pleasure to say, only at that moment it was probably one of the most controlled from all sides, by all possible means, a place on the planet. Reasonably realized that it is cheaper to confess. But, anyway, at least something is a bit, but positive.
