Reuters is reporting the Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky is not satisfied with the compensation Iran is offering Ukrainian families who lost loved ones onboard a plane that Iran shot down in early January.

“As for the Iranian side, they immediately offered us $80,000 for each family… It is too small. We will press for a larger amount,” Zelenskiy told Ukrainian “1+1” TV.

The airliner was struck by a missile on Jan. 8 shortly after it left Tehran en route to Kiev. Iran admitted its forces had shot down the Ukraine International Airlines plane in error, after initially denying it had a role in the incident. All 176 people aboard, including 11 Ukrainians, were killed.

Zelenskiy also said that Ukraine still was waiting for Iran to hand over the black boxes of the plane.

Also onboard the airliner were 57 Canadian citizens, as Canada is home to a large Iranian diaspora. The plane was headed for Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine, but many had scheduled connections on to Toronto. Other passengers included 82 Iranians, as well as individuals from Afghanistan, the U.K. and Germany.
