Donfried noted that Iran faces open “strong criticism” from the United States and UN after the information about the transfer of drones and missiles to Russia. She added that Washington and its allies intend to continue expressing their disagreement with Tehran’s actions. Representative State Department stressed the readiness of the United States to make every effort to prevent Iranian military assistance to Russia.
Former Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian confirmed delivery of a batch of drones to Russia before the start of a special operation on Ukraine. He explained that this happened a few months before the start of hostilities on the territory of Ukraine.
In October The Washington Post wrotethat Russia has agreed with Iran on new arms deliveries, under which Russian troops will for the first time receive Iranian surface-to-surface ballistic missiles and a batch of drones. It was specified that Iran would transfer, in particular, a batch of short-range ballistic missiles Fateh-110 and Zolfaghar, as well as dozens of UAVs Mohajer-6 and Shahed-136.
