A leaked audio recording between air traffic control and a nearby pilot on January 8 confirms that the Iranians immediately knew a surface-to-air missile shot down a Ukrainian airliner. 

All 176 souls on board perished.

After three days of lambasting shootdown accusations "as an American lie" and "an attempt to prevent Boeing stock from a free fall," the Iranian Armed Forces finally admitted that they mistakenly identified the passenger jet as a hostile target. (Daily Wire)

The revelation was made on a Ukrainian television station on Sunday night when an audio recording of a “pilot of another plane can be heard saying he saw ‘the light of a missile’ in the sky before Ukrainian International Airways flight 752 crashed in an explosion,” Reuters reported.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said that the audio proved “that the Iranian side knew from the start that our plane had been hit by a missile.”

Reuters added that Iran, which falsely denied responsibility for three days, blamed Ukraine for the release of the audio file which it reportedly described as “confidential evidence.”

Iran also indicated that it would no longer share evidence with Ukraine regarding the crash.
