"All compensations and insurance payments that are defined by law and are in the airlines' area of responsibility will be made in accordance with all international rules and the insurance contracts that we have," said DYKHNE. He also said that the UIA backs the position of the Ukrainian president Volodymyr ZELENSKY that Iran should pay compensation.

On the other hand, according to a Prime Minister Oleksiy HONCHARUK press service, "the government will pay UAH 200,000 of assistance to the families of those who were killed in the plane crash in Iran and will monitor the proper payoff of insurance payments in accordance with the Montreal Convention."
