Ukranian plane crash victims returned home


(WEHT)- The remains of 11 Ukrainians killed in a passenger plane shot down by Iranian forces were received in Kiev Sunday. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and some members of his cabinet were in attendance during the somber ceremony.

All 176 people on board the plane were killed when the Iranian military confused the plane for a cruise missile. Iran is currently examining the plane’s black box and says it has not decided if it will send flight data recorders to another country.
