US Threatens Russia And Iran With Sanctions Over Alleged Drone Deal

File image.

On August 11, the United States Department of State said that it would “vigorously” enforce sanctions on Russian and Iranian arms trading, revealing that Russian officials had conducted training on drones in Iran.

Last month, senior US officials said that Iran was preparing to provide Russia with up to several hundred drones, some of which are armed, and that Russian officials had visited Iran to inspect the drones in question. The deal is supposedly meant to support Russia’s ongoing special military operation in Ukraine.

At the time, Iran’s foreign minister denied the claim, including in a phone call with his Ukrainian counterpart. Russia also denied the presence of such a deal.

State Department deputy spokesperson Vedant Patel told reporters during a phone briefing that Russian officials had trained on drones in Iran “in the last several weeks.” The spokesman added that the transfers of drones between Russia and Iran was “potentially sanctionable under numerous authorities.”

“We remain incredibly concerned about Iran’s use and proliferation of UAVs. They have been used to attack U.S. forces, our partners in the region, and international shipping entities,” Patel said.

The Russian military operates thousands of drones of different types, most of which were developed and produced in Russia. Still, it can for sure benefit from Iran’s well-established drone industry.

According to the information revealed by the US, Russia is interested in Iran’s Shahed-191 and Shahed-129 combat drones. Both drones have a long endurance and can be armed with light precision-guided munitions.

The US claims may be just a stunt meant to increase pressure on Russia over its operation in Ukraine and more importantly on Iran over its drone program. Washington and its allies in the Middle East, first and foremost Israel, have been trying to sabotage Iran’s drone program for quite some time now.

You already imposed sanction on both Russia and Iran. It didn’t work. And again it will not work. So, Russia should go ahead and purchase the drones.

Russia could swap a couple of tactical nukes in exchange for Iranian drones as deterrent to US & IDF terrorism in ME.

americans are gay

Why just swap a few nukes, when Russia can open full fledged military bases with nuclear missiles on Iranian soil.

Russia already said that that’s EXACTLY what they are going to do after they put uKRAPistan down like a rabid dog.

What sanctions?????? there is nothing the deadbeat bankrupt Americunts can do either to Russia or Iran and as if they give a flying drone fuck…

The Objective

There is now a video of an Iranian Shahed (Hunter) drone taking out a AFU M-777 with pinpoint accuracy.

Thats a relative. Both already are sanctioned for advanced things.

Trading here might make sense. Iran has bought a nuke powerplant. It make sense Iran pay some of that by drones.

Great scene. I hear Zelensky is hoping to star in a remake.

Then again Biden already has the lines down, so it’s a tossup.

Hunter will film the whole scene, running up to Jessica Lange’s stand in before the boat sinks and asking her for the camera: “Did I hurt you? Did I not ask every time? You can’t treat me this way, you know”.

Garga

I can offer a few:

I wish they sanctioned [some] of our cinema and filmmakers. Alas not only it’s not going to happen, they’ll give more trophies and prizes to them for their worthless “festival films” that all -without exception- paint a very negative picture of Iran (a few years ago an Iranian film wasn’t accepted in an Australian film festival because there was a highway in the movie and we are allowed only dirt road and trails, ruined shacks, broken families and crazed religious killers). But they put Russian filmmakers (alive and deceased) on sanction.

They could also put sanction on [some] our young and bright Olympiad winners and not let them enter into their own universities/industries, like they did with Russians. That would stop the trickle of brain-drain. Alas this too, not only won’t happen, they’ll make the honeypot sweeter for them.

They could sanction [some] of our musicians like they did with Russians (again alive and deceased). Alas this, too, won’t happen and they’ll increase the amount of prizes, reward more medals and appoint more ‘knights’ for “being effective to promote and enrich Persian music”, like they are so interested in our traditional music!

They could sanction all of us and prevent Iranians from investing and buying properties in their countries, like they did with Russians. Yet again, this one won’t happen and they find more ways to drain us of capital and treasury.

There can be more. Will the US state department give me something for my awesome suggestions!?

Lucky, lucky Russians!!

PS. Like I said before, I’ll wait and wait until I see an Iranian UAV sporting the Red Star of Russian Aerospace Force flying over Ukraine to believe Americans, but I’m perfectly fine if they don’t wait like me (hell might freeze and we’ll still be waiting), just get my list and get to work without any pretext whatsoever.

Best regards to Salman Rusdie here.

Most muslims cant even read the Choran but are told by some child entrence.

Iran has world records in killed in the traffic. Thats because they take Islam and driving licence from the same Mullah.

You also hit danish instrutor soldiers in Iraq by ballistics even they were asked for by the Shiits in Bagdad.

Garga

Wow amazing, how did you know? I got my driving license in a mosque because “we don’t need no stinking police” and sat in front of a Mullah. He said: “Read Quran! I replied: “But Mullah, I cant even read Choran!” He said: “That’s OK, because you are told by some child entrence. Here’s your driving licanse…” and doodled on a broken piece of brick and gave it to me.

… and I lived happily ever after. I had no accidents, except one time when I was driving a ballistic missile in Iraq I hit a danish instructor soldier but shiits in Bagdad told me it was ok we were asking for it… so it doesn’t count!

I was listening to the David Duke show. He talks about a bunch of religious leaders rallying against the Iraqi war back in the early 2000s. There were priests, ministers, Muslim Imans and so forth.

So someone asked, “Why are there no rabbis? A rep from the state of Virginia responded that “if the Jews were against this war it wouldn’t be happening.”. This is the same elephant in the room no one wants to speak of in this western organized war on Russia as well.

So did that 2000 selfpromoting work ? Or would it have worked if some rabbis participated?

As I know the jews in Iraq as well as Syria has low status or worse. By that they have left the Country. Some few of them in Israel are compensated by Golan. They might look down from there laughing.

The Crunge

Laughing at your comments indeed. All groups of people.

What percent of Ukraine’s richest people are Jews? I know at least 3 of the top 10. Look up Ukrainian oligarchs on Wikipedia or wherever. Do your own research.

jens holm

You still are no learner even statistics say same thing again and again.

The ones getting educated also gets a lot of more influence and money. The problems for You by that is Your own fault.

Dont blame jews for making and going into good schools. As them we finance the education too by helping all up and not only those with talents.

Our demands are they study hard. By that they becomes good taxpayers, make jobs and pay back the invstment with interest.

For Russia, Ukra, Poland and others in Europe as well as the main parts of the Muslims its the same thing.

Your rulers dont invest in people. But Jews insisted as a part of their sekular part.

So they became the only middleclass. Tzars and Communist party members has done everything to keep poeple low and down in illiterasy and into gold and land for the churches.

We have no jew problems here. Some are wealthy. In the other hand they have been taxed hard and employ many and pay well. We then can add tax from the ones with jobs too.

we do. By that education, free hospitals and almost free healtcare is paid.

Putin suckered Russia into Ukraine. Now he’s trying to buy drones from Iran. America will keep arming Ukraine until Russia is humiliated before the whole world. Six months and Russia still hasn’t achieved its mission in Ukraine. It’s now crystal clear that the Russian armed forces are not a supper power. Without nukes, Russia is just another third-world military.

So far, all arming Ukraine has done is to weaken the West and set them up for a major loss.

Do you live under a rock or just stupid?

The Ukrainians themselves blamed the USA and NATO for the lack of weapons/ammo shipment. Not to mention that only 30% of their weapons get to the front line. You are also coping so hard, “hasn’t achieved its mission”.

You lie to yourself and try to fool yourself or just don’t have a clue and talk out of your butt. One, Russia linked the Crimean Peninsula to Russia by land. Two, LPR is free from the Neo-Nazi puppet empowered by the US/West. Three, NATO is scared and wants this war to end. The winner is coming…

Were you the Turk-isis? Or Zion cuck sucker who is Turk-isis? You aren’t good at lying or misleading people with your comment/s. Again I have to correct you, it is called “Russia special military operation”. A lot of people questioned at the beginning why Russia limited itself. Make me laugh and give me your numbers UA vs Russia miliatry usage. UA is begging for weapons, not Russia, UA is losing high-level officers in their military, not Russia, UA is losing the war and gaining nothing so far, unlike Russia.

You have no clue about this war and you will never want to find the trust of this war, I remember you and I know that for a fact. Less than 4,900 civilians were killed (fun fact UA include civilians they killed in DPR/LPR) so less than 4,900 people so far and Russia gain so much. How many civilians did NATO/US murder in Iraq again?

The fact is even the UN and other NGOs that are pro-Western blame the death of civilians on UA for hiding and using civilian builds. There are rules for war – UA is not following.

I end by saying this, both the US and NATO were sacred Russia started their special military operation last winter and NATO/US are cutting aid to UA. Also, I know it is in your DNA to lie like a pig and cope like one but just stop.

thoughtful

Russia has removed tens of thousands of large bits of weaponry and eliminated most of those fighting against them. Ukraine, the US UK EU have contrived to wreck most of the Donbass regions.
