According to a US media report, Iran has sent the first drones to Russia for use in Ukraine. As the Washington Post reported on Monday, citing intelligence sources, at least two different types of unmanned aircraft were delivered on August 19.

These could be used to fire on radar systems, artillery and other military objects. However, the Russian armed forces had to contend with numerous malfunctions during the first tests. The Russians are “not satisfied”. According to the report, the US government expects Iran to deliver hundreds more drones to Moscow.
