The U.S. designated six entities and two individuals, including the IRGC Aerospace Force, for their role “in the production or ongoing transfer to Russia of Iranian unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), which Russia has used in devastating attacks against civilian infrastructure in Ukraine”. The State Department underscored that “the Iranian government’s military support to Russia fuels the conflict in Ukraine, and its transfer of these UAVs is in clear violation of UN Security Council resolution 2231. The U.S. will continue to work to disrupt and delay these transfers and impose costs on actors engaged in this activity”.
