The pilot can be heard saying in English:
“Dear customers, this is your captain speaking. I’m speaking on behalf of myself and not as a representative of the airlines. I think the war in Ukraine is a crime.”
He then adds,
“We should not continue this war and stop it immediately. Don’t create this bloodshed. Thank you for your time.”
