In August, it became known that Iran had sold a batch of its kamikaze drones to Russia.

The use of Iranian drones by Russia has led to the death of dozens of people in Ukrainian cities, in particular, in Kyiv, as well as to the destruction of energy facilities.

In mid-October, reports surfaced that Russia had ordered more than 2,000 more drones from Iran.

On November 1, Ukrainian intelligence reported that in early November, Iran plans to send a batch of more than 200 Shahed-136, Mohajer-6 and Arash-2 combat drones to Russia.

On November 9, Yury Ignat, spokesman for the Air Force Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, announced that Russia had fired more than 400 Iranian kamikaze drones since their first use. Most of the drones have been eliminated.
