Civilian trucks with Iranian license plates have been spotted coming into the underground hangars of the “Kurskatomenergoremont” nuclear power enterprise in the village of Ivanino, Kursk oblast near the border with Ukraine for the last few weeks, Ukrainian military intelligence reported on Nov. 4.

It’s possible that the facility, which is directly adjacent to the Kursk Nuclear Power Plant, is used by the Russian troops for military purposes, Ukrainian intelligence speculated.

Russia has attacked Ukrainian cities with Iranian-made suicide drones since the beginning of October. Ukraine believes that 200 more attack drones are to be delivered to Russia in November.

Military intelligence chief Kyrylo Budanov earlier warned that Russia could deploy Iranian missiles, namely Fateh-110 and Zolfaghar, against Ukraine as early as November.

On Oct. 16, The Washington Post reported Iran has secretly agreed to transfer not only attack drones to Russia, but also surface-to-surface ballistic missiles for its full-scale war against Ukraine.

The Iranian authorities also intend to supply the Kremlin regime with approximately 1,000 surface-to-surface short range ballistic missiles, CNN reported on Nov. 1.

Officially, Teheran continue to deny that it is supplying weapons to Russia, in spite of the abundant evidence of military ties with Moscow.
