ASB News is really pushing this Iran drones bullshit. Their source. Jake Sullivan.
Clearly there is high level talks going on with Iran right now. Most likely about Syria. Putin is going to visit Iran next week according to Peskov.
Im not saying Iran has bad drones. But Iran and Russia don't cooperate very well in arms deals. There is always snags. So this story is bullshit.
Now an equally stupid claim was launched by the very same liar who launched the fake Chinese weapons claim.
White House: Iran set to deliver armed drones to Russia - AP - Jul 7, 2022
The White House on Monday said it believes Russia is turning to Iran to provide it with “hundreds” of unmanned aerial vehicles, including weapons-capable drones, for use in its ongoing war in Ukraine.
U.S. National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said it was unclear whether Iran had already provided any of the unmanned systems to Russia, but said the U.S. has “information” that indicates Iran is preparing to train Russian forces to use them as soon as this month.
“Our information indicates that the Iranian government is preparing to provide Russia with up to several hundred UAVs, including weapons-capable UAVs on an expedited timeline,” he told reporters Monday.
Russia has for some time build mass production facilities for its own drones.

A decade ago, the Russian Armed Forces possessed fewer than 200 UAVs, and now this figure stands at over 2000, and each year is replenished by 300. Furthermore, the Russian defence industry is conducting R&D on the application of artificial intelligence (AI) in UAVs, with the ambition of enabling them to perform as unified “swarms of drones” in combat zones. Sources claim that this was already tested in 2020, during the Kavkaz-2020 military exercise.
Russia has absolutely no need to buy drones from Iran. Besides that it is dubious that Iran would be able to deliver some and certainly not 'several hundreds'.
