That is not proof that Ukraine is the country that leaked it.
Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelenskiy was part of the TV interview when it was leaked, that was like the first line of the Reuters report.
"A leaked audio recording of an Iranian pilot talking to the control tower in Tehran shows that Iran knew immediately it had shot down a Ukrainian airliner last month, despite denying it for days, Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelenskiy said."
"The leaked audio “proves that the Iranian side knew from the start that our plane had been hit by a missile,” Zelenskiy said in a television interview."

Given that both of these links and the have previously been published in this tread with the July 4 date stated for the admission by the USA... It surprises me that you missed them... I'm not sure where you got the concept of July 6 from.
"Note: Identical letters were sent to Jim Wright, Speaker of the House of Representatives, and John C. Stennis, President pro tempore of the Senate. The letter was released by the Office of the Press Secretary on July 5."
That is from the Reagan Presidential Library. https://www.reaganlibrary.gov/research/speeches/070488a
That was reported in the Papers on July 6.
Also since 30 years has passed, secret UK documents are now unsealed, the included telexes from the US tothe UK in which the US said they had initially stated theyhad shot down an F14, they know it was a civil airliner, however have not made that public. There were numerous lies made at the time including the aircraft hade a mode 2 transponder, that the ship was engaged with surface targets at the time (they had stopped 12 minutes prior), and that the airliner turned towards the ship, later it was established the airlines was on a standard airway. The US also stated they tried to communicate with the airliner numerous times, however it did not have a radio on board that could transmit or receive the normal civil VHF frequencies. Only after the incident were those radios installed in US warship. They tried to contact the aircraft on UHF radios (which is what military aircraft use), the only UHF receivers on board a civil would be like the DME, and I have never seen anyone try and listen for a voice modulation on that.
"This “info flash” telex headlined “incident in the Gulf” says “the Pentagon have admitted to us that the US have mistakenly shot down in the Straits of Hormuz a civilian airliner. This has not yet been confirmed publicly.”
As well as giving the British the story before it became public, the US also shared its attempts to manage the story in the press. The telex says: “The administration have not yet confirmed publicly and to the press that the aircraft was a civilian airliner, nor that it was the US that had shot it down, but earlier Pentagon statements that the US had shot down an Iranian F-14 are now being back-pedalled.”"

Like I said before there is no moral high ground here for either the US or Iran.
