Conspiracy theory about the downing of the Ukrainian flight PS 752.
The New York Times has obtained and verified the video showing the moment a Ukrainian airliner was hit in Iran. Bellingcat geolocated the video and confirmed The New York Times' conclusions.
The pro-Kremlin media is often trying to discredit Bellingcat's findings and accused White Helmets of staging videos.
Iran has recognised that its military forces unintentionally shot down the passenger jet. On January 11, the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran Hassan Rouhani wrote on Twitter: “Armed Forces’ internal investigation has concluded that regrettably, missiles fired due to human error caused the horrific crash of the Ukrainian plane & death of 176 innocent people.”
Earlier, intelligence services of Canada and the United States informed that the Ukrainian plane was shot down by a surface-to-air missile minutes after departure from the Tehran airport. Find here the EU statement regarding the incident.
