Iran has never transferred ballistic missiles to Russia, while China supplies Moscow with only household appliances, head of Ukrainian Military Intelligence Kyrylo Budanov told Ukrainian TV broadcasters on Dec. 6.

“As of now, Iran hasn’t delivered a single ballistic missile to Russia,” said Budanov.

He added that China remains unwilling to supply Russia with weapons.

“It's the same story with China,” Budanov said. “Nothing special was delivered – except for a huge number of washing machines, TVs, and other household items.”

Russia has received hundreds of kamikaze drones from Iran: Mohajer-6, Shahed-129 and Shahed-191 – all of which have been deployed in the war against Ukraine.

According to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, Moscow has ordered a total of 2,400 drones from Tehran.

Earlier, U.S. media reported that the Iranian authorities also agreed to supply the Kremlin regime with 1,000 short-range surface-to-surface ballistic missiles.
