Secretary of the NSDC of Ukraine Oleksiy Danilov on the issue of returning “black boxes” to Ukraine

I appeal to the domestic and foreign media to take a balanced and responsible position on the issue of returning to Ukraine of the "black boxes" of the Boeing-737-800 aircraft of the Ukrainian company "Ukraine International Airlines" shot down on January 8, 2020, in the Islamic Republic of Iran.

The consultations between Ukrainian and Iranian experts are ongoing. Negotiations are complicated and intense.

Information hype, manipulations around this topic, the dissemination of unverified information significantly complicate the negotiation process and can impinge its effectiveness.

I urge the media when covering the issue of returning "black boxes", to use the official information from the Ukrainian authorities, which will be provided depending on the agreement with the Iranian side.
