Have Russia and Iran agreed on ballistic missile supplies?
Russia is making major efforts to ensure Iranian ballistic missile supplies. They have not been successful thus far
Andrii Cherniak, a representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate, told RBC-Ukraine.
According to him, since last year, Russia has been trying to get missile weapons from Iran.
"We are talking, in particular, about Fateh-110 and Zolfagar ballistic missiles. The aggressor state is indeed working very hard in this direction, making serious diplomatic efforts, which, however, have not yet been successful," Cherniak noted.
According to Ukrainian intelligence, no missile deliveries from Iran to Russia have been recorded so far.
"According to our data, there are no relevant decisions or agreements between Moscow and Tehran," the intelligence representative added.
Is Iran ready to hand over ballistics to Russia?
Last week, discussions over the likely transfer of Iranian ballistic missiles to Russia heated up. According to John Kirby, a spokesperson for the White House National Security Council, Tehran is already delivering attack drones, guided aerial bombs, and artillery rounds, and is examining possibilities for short-range Ababil and Fateh-110 ballistic missiles.
According to him, Washington's anxiety stemmed from the Iranian military's prior demonstration of its developments to Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu. The Russian side has not made any official statement on the ballistic missile issue.
