Ukraine threatened to use military aircraft against Belavia plane - recording

New details have emerged about the incident with a return of a Belavia airliner about a week ago. On November 1, Belarus published the transcript of the pilot's dialogue with the manager of the Kiev airport Zhulyany.

The pilot clarifies the reason and says that he is turning the plane around. Thus,

the threat to use military aircraft against Belavia plane in the event of the pilot's non-obedience, which was denied by Ukrainian security services, is obvious.

Recall, last week, the Foreign Ministry of Belarus said that if Ukraine kept silent, the records would be published.

The Belarusian side continues to insist that the Ukrainian authorities must reimburse the costs and damage caused by the forced return of the plane and also apologize for the incident and the threat to the lives of passengers.
