“The whole world will know that the Iranian regime is helping Russia to prolong this war,” Zelensky said.

“If it weren’t for the Iranian supply of weapons to the aggressor, we would be closer to peace now,” he continued. “And that means closer to a complete solution to the food crisis.”

Some background: Iran is preparing to send nearly 1,000 additional weapons, including missiles and more attack drones, to Russia, officials in a Western country that closely monitors Iran’s weapons program said. CNN.

The shipment is being closely monitored because it would be the first instance of Iran sending advanced precision guided missiles to Russia, which could give the Kremlin a substantial boost on the battlefield.

Iranian drones have played a significant role in the conflict since Russia launched its full-scale invasion of Ukraine in late February.
