WH: Russia, Iran's alliance not good for Ukraine, M. East

United States National Security Council (NSC) Strategic Communications Coordinator John Kirby described the "growing, burgeoning defense partnership" between Russia and Iran as "not good" for Ukraine but also the Middle East.

Speaking at a press conference about Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi's visit to Moscow, Kirby noted earlier "obvious proof" that Iran provides Russia with drones that are being used in the latter's military campaign in Ukraine.

Kirby underscored that "Iran probably wants something out of this too" and that, to the US understanding, it is probably sophisticated military and defense equipment. He added that such cooperation makes Iran's "destabilizing activity" in the region, including supporting Hamas and the Houthis, "more worrisome."
