In the crash Boeing Ukrainian in Iran killed businesswoman Elena Malakhova, which is suspected in the forbidden arms supplies to civil war-torn Libya. It is reported by CNN, who has studied the seated passengers.
38-year-old Malakhov was one of two passengers Ukrainians of the crashed ship. The victim of the crash was a Director of the company SkyAviaTrans and co-owner associated Volaris Business. The first was in the Ukraine, the second in Scotland. The company engaged in cargo and passenger air transportation. In August of last year, the plane was shot down in Libya by forces of the Libyan national army (LNA) field Marshal Khalifa the Haftarot. Carriers claimed that the plane brought humanitarian aid from Turkey. However, in the LDF said that it was carrying arms to the Palestinian national consensus Government in Tripoli.
In December came the report of the UN experts, which stated that Turkey and the UAE violated the embargo on arms supplies to Libya. Experts have studied the attack on the plane companies Malakhova and concluded that he could carry military cargo, for example, the fuselage and wings for UAVs. Directly carriers are not accused of violating the ban, however, the UN noted the strangeness in their documentation.
SkyAviaTrans and Volaris Business avoided a ban on flights to Libya, who imposed government of Ukraine, on the grounds that working with the “Red Crescent” in the middle East country. However, the organization denied it. Why Malakhov went to Iran, is unknown.
The representative SkyAviaTrans refused to discuss the report the UN experts. Husband Malakhova said he was too upset by the death of his wife, to give comments.
