The black boxes of the crashed Ukrainian passenger plane which was shot down by Iranian forces will be sent to Ukraine, Iranian media reported on Saturday.

"The black boxes cannot be read in Iran, and following the request of the Ukrainians, they will be sent to Ukraine," the Iranian Daneshjoo news agency reported, citing Hassan Rezaeefar, the director of Incident Investigation of Iran's Aviation Organization.

On January 8, the Ukrainian airliner crashed shortly after taking off from Tehran Imam Khomeini International Airport, killing all 176 people aboard. Days after the crash, Iran's armed forces admitted that the plane was "unintentionally" hit by Iran and "human error" was to blame.
