Details: It is noted that the States, together with the UK and France, raised the issue of Iran’s transfer of UAVs to Russia at a meeting of the UN Security Council. Washington now has abundant evidence that these UAVs are being used to strike Ukrainian civilians and critical civilian infrastructure.
Verbatim: “As Iran continues to lie and deny providing weapons to Russia for use in Ukraine, we intend to work with allies and partners to prevent the transfer of dangerous weapons to Russia.
We will not hesitate to apply our sanctions and other appropriate instruments against all those involved in these shipments.
We will also continue to provide unprecedented security assistance to Ukraine, including air defenses, so that Ukraine can defend itself against these weapons.”
What came before: The ambassadors of the member states of the European Union approved sanctions against Iran for its involvement in the war waged by Russia against Ukraine.
