The Ukrainian evacuation plane was 'hijacked' and flown to Iran; Tehran and Kyiv deny the report.

The Ukrainian Evacuation plane

Ukraine’s Deputy Foreign Minister Yevgeny Yenin said "Last Sunday, our plane was hijacked by other people. On Tuesday, the plane was practically stolen from us, with an unidentified group of passengers onboard instead of airlifting Ukrainians," according to Russian News Agency TASS. "Our next three evacuation attempts were also not successful because our people could not get into the airport," he said.

The deputy minister made no mention of what happened to the jet, whether Kiev will try to recover it, or how the Ukrainian people returned from Kabul. According to TASS, a military transport plane carrying 83 individuals, including 31 Ukrainians, arrived in Kiev on Sunday from Afghanistan.The Jerusalem Post claimed that both Tehran and Kiev denied the hijacking of any Ukrainian evacuation jet in Afghanistan.

According to the Iranian Civil Aviation Authority, the plane refuelled in Mashhad before flying to Kiev.According to the RBC Ukraine news agency, Oleg Nikolenko, a spokesman for the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry denied the report as well, saying "There are no captured Ukrainian planes in Kabul or elsewhere. The information about the 'captured plane' that is being circulated by some media outlets is not true."Yenin was just describing the unusual level of problems diplomats had in evacuating Ukrainians, according to Nikolenko. If this was not the case, it is unclear why Yenin reported the jet was hijacked by armed people and "actually stolen," according to The Jerusalem Post.
