Here are the facts…
The recently crashed Ukrainian plane leaving Tehran has caused massive controversy due to the fact that it went down on the same day as Iran’s attack on U.S. forces.
Now, according to the Washington Examiner, diplomats are speaking on the issue. “It’s a very strange coincidence that, in this period of tensions in the Middle East, that that happened,” a Central European diplomat stated.
“Our priority is to establish the truth and those responsible for this terrible catastrophe,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy wrote. “I implore you all to refrain from speculating and making uncorroborated theories in relation to the plane crash before any official statements are made.”
“There weren’t any problems with the plane,” Ukraine International Airlines President Yevhen Dykhne said.
“The Iranians might have been hyped up, expecting a response and freaking out when they thought they saw an American air attack,” a military source told the Washington Examiner. “It’s possible this was a mistake. It wouldn’t be the first time something like that happened.” You can read the full details of this story here.
