A Ukrainian plane in Afghanistan to evacuate its citizens was hijacked and redirected to Iran, reports quoted a Ukraine Minister as saying.
The plane had reportedly shown up last week to clear Ukrainians.
“Last Sunday, our plane was hijacked by others. On Tuesday, the plane was practically stolen from us, it flew into Iran with an unidentified group of passengers onboard instead of airlifting Ukrainians. Our next three departure endeavors were also not successful because our people could not get into the airport,” Ukraine’s Deputy Foreign Minister Yevgeny Yenin was quoted as saying by Russian News Agency TASS.
More details are awaited.
