Spain resumed its investigation of the crash of the Ukrainian Yak-42

The Ministry of defence of Spain for the first time assumed political responsibility for the air crash of the Ukrainian Yak-42 in 2003 and announced the resumption of the investigation of causes of the tragedy. About it reports UKRINFORM with reference to The Local Spain.

«We will do our best to find all documents … related to the contracts,» — said the head of the Ministry of defense of Spain maría Dolores de Cospedal.

The Ministry of defence of Spain has chartered a plane with a Ukrainian firm for operations in Afghanistan, despite warnings from the military about the poor condition of the vessel. As a result, the Yak-42 aircraft crashed while landing to refuel in the mountain area in Trabzon (Turkey) 26 may 2003. Killed 62 Spanish soldiers, 13 crew members, among whom were Ukrainians and Belarusians.

The accident was followed by a scandal due to incorrect identification of the bodies of 30 soldiers, who were taken into the wrong family. Three Spanish soldiers were sent to prison in 2009 for something that does not discern the body.

Promises de Cospedal caused a wide public resonance in Spain.
