Iran is preparing to provide Russia with several hundred drones, including some that are capable of being armed with weapons, US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan told reporters on Monday. Sullivan also said the United States has information that shows Iran is preparing to train Russian forces to use these drones.

“The Iranian government is preparing to provide Russia with up to several hundred UAVs, including weapons-capable [ones], on an expedited timeline," Sullivan said. “Our information further indicates that Iran is preparing to train Russian forces to use these UAVs, with initial training sessions slated to begin as soon as early as July."

“It is unclear whether Iran has delivered any of these UAVs to Russia already," he said. “This is just one example of how Russia is looking to countries like Iran for capabilities that are also being used or have been used, before we got the cease-fire in place in Yemen, to attack Saudi Arabia.”
