Ukraine has agreed to pay $7.6m to the families of 40 Israelis killed when the Ukrainian military accidentally shot down an airliner in 2001.
The Russian airliner never made it to Tel Aviv
A missile fired during an exercise hit the airliner over the Black Sea.
Around $200,000 will be paid to the family of each Israeli victim, Ukrainian Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych says.
The government has approved the agreement and will submit it to parliament for approval next month.
Ukraine signed the deal in November, but the terms were not announced at the time.
Russia deal to follow
In October 2001 a Russian airliner flying from Israel to Siberia exploded over the Black Sea.
Several days after the accident Ukraine admitted that an anti-aircraft missile fired during a military exercise in Crimea had caused the disaster.
All 78 crew and passengers on board died. Forty were Israeli and the rest were Russian.
Following the deal with Israel, a compensation agreement is expected to be signed between Ukraine and Russia soon.
