Chairman of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Leonid Slutsky:
“The terrible tragedy with the collapse of the Ukrainian Boeing 737 in the sky over Iran claimed the lives of 177 people. The most sincere condolences to the family and friends.
The causes of the disaster will only be analyzed. And here one should not allow the use of the tragedy for political purposes, to stoop to Tehran’s unfounded accusations or exercises in anti-Iranian eloquence.
It is important to wait for the results of the investigation. ”
