Iranian weapons in the war against Ukraine

Recently, Russia has been actively using Iranian kamikaze drones to attack Ukrainian civilian infrastructure. According to the GUR,  Russia ordered about 2.4 thousand more drones from Iran . Subsequently, it became known that  Iran wants to transfer ballistic missiles and even more drones to Russia .

The United States said that in return, the aggressor country  could advise Iran on the suppression of protests in the country , which continue after the death of a girl who was detained by the police for violating the rules of wearing a hijab.
