In fact, Iran will deliver 100 armed drones to Moscow, the rest will be for observation and intelligence gathering.
Their role on the battlefields will be decisive. The Iranians have proven how good they are in this field. In fact, they are much ahead of the Russians.
With this move, Iran makes it clear to the Americans whose side it will stand on and what its geopolitical choice is.
While briefing the editors on Monday at the White House, Sullivan conveyed the information of the supply of the material “with urgent procedures”.
At the same time, the training of the personnel by Iranian operators will also begin.

During the war, Russia has lost large numbers of drones that need time to replace them.
Iran has more experience with armed drones or kamikaze drones than Russia.
