Iran has provided Russian with a fleet of military UAVs, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said at a press briefing on Aug. 30.
According to our data, Russia has received Iranian Mohajer-6 and Shahed drones sometime in August,” said Jean-Pierre.
“Russian cargo planes were loaded with UAVs at an Iranian airfield, before leaving for Russia. That’s what we see, that’s our assessment.”
The official did not have an opportunity to comment on the possibility these drones could be deployed in Ukraine.
US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan earlier said that Tehran is working on providing Moscow with several hundred drones, including combat UAVs.
