Defence Intelligence: why Iran is in no hurry to transfer ballistic missiles to Russia

Iran has so far refrained from transferring its ballistic missiles to Russia because of the potential consequences, Andriy Yusov, a spokesman for the HUR, said on the telethon air.

At the same time, intelligence officials emphasized that such agreements exist between the aggressor country and Tehran.

“Serious work continues on this (the transfer of missiles), although we know that there are preliminary agreements, now it remains to wait and see,” Yusov said.

He added, “in Iran, not everyone is so eager to help Putin, realizing how this can threaten the Iranian regime.”

  • In August, Iran already sent hundreds of attack drones to Russia. But, according to President Volodymyr Zelensky, we can talk about thousands of UAVs.
  • A few weeks later, Russian forces repeatedly attacked civilian targets in Ukraine with Iranian Shahed 136s, which crashed at high speed and caused extensive damage to infrastructure.
  • Then the EU states imposed additional sanctions against Iran, which has already been subjected to a number of punitive measures.
  • After a three-week pause in using Iranian UAVs, Russian invaders again attacked Ukrainian cities with Shaheds.
