OREANDA-NEWSForeign Minister of Ukraine Dmitry Kuleba discussed with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif the legal mechanism for compensating the relatives of those killed in the UIA plane crash near Tehran, which was mistakenly shot down by the Iranian military in January.

"We went in very detail on the issue of compensation in terms of the formation of legal mechanisms for this", Kuleba said at a briefing on Tuesday.
