Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said he would speak to US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo today following claims that Iran shot down a Ukrainian airliner.

American, British and Canadian officials say intelligence sources indicate that Iran shot down the plane, killing all 176 onboard.

Zelensky reiterated Ukraine’s request to be sent all information needed to conduct a thorough investigation and said he would talk about the probe with Pompeo later today.

“Our goal is to establish the undeniable truth,” he said. “The value of human life is above all political motives.”
