US measures are likely to include economic sanctions and possibly some export controls. They will also be directed against third parties helping Tehran and Moscow.

“Are we going to do more because of Iranian military sales to Russia? Absolutely,” the US official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. “For anyone in the world who or sells to Iran materials that can be used for [беспилотных летательных аппаратов] or ballistic missiles, or who is involved in flights between Iran and Russia: use caution, because we are definitely going to apply sanctions. Everyone who helps the Iranians is helping the Russians to kill Ukrainians,” the source said.

The official declined to elaborate on future sanctions or comment directly on recent reports of Iranian-Russian armed agreements.

  • On October 16, the American newspaper The Washington Post announced that Iran was going to transfer ground-to-ground ballistic missiles to Russia for the war against Ukraine.
  • Foreign Secretary Dmitry Kuleba urged the European Union to impose sanctions against Iran for the supply of drones to Russia.
