Iran is planning to ship “more weapons” including surface-to-surface short-range ballistic missiles and more attack drones, to Russia to use in its war against Ukraine, officials from a western country that closely monitors Iran’s weapons program told CNN.

According to CNN’s report, this new expected shipment would mark a significant increase in Iranian support to Russia’s war effort.

Iran’s last shipment to Russia included about 450 drones.
