“Just the fact that Russia asked Iran for help is an admission by the Kremlin that it is bankrupt” militarily and politically, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky claimed in a video message.
Russia’s reliance on Iranian-made drones for attacks on Ukrainian targets demonstrates Moscow’s “bankruptcy” at the military and political levels, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky argued on Tuesday. The use of Iranian weapons amounts to an admission of failure by Moscow after decades of funding the Soviet and post-Soviet defense industry, he added.
According to Kyiv, the recent Russian attacks on infrastructure in Ukraine were launched by Iranian-made Shahed-136 kamikaze drones.
Iran denies supplying Russia with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), something the White House says it is confident of. The Kremlin said yesterday that it had no information about the use of Iranian-made drones in attacks in Ukraine.
“Let’s keep in mind that the very fact that Russia asked Iran for help is an admission by the Kremlin that it is bankrupt” militarily and politically, Zelensky claimed in a video message, explaining: “For decades, they spent billions of dollars on their defense industry. And finally, they bowed to Tehran in order to secure joint drones and missiles.”
Volodymyr Zelensky, who has said that 30% of Ukraine’s power plants have been knocked out because of the recent attacks, also argued that the use of Iranian-made drones could create hopes and illusions for Russia’s leaders, but ultimately it will not. to help substantially.
“It will simply show the world once again that Russia is headed for defeat and is trying to drag one more of its accomplices into this atrocity,” the Ukrainian president said.
