After months of denials, Iran admitted for the first time that it had provided a "limited number" of drones to Russia. Iran's foreign minister Hossein Amirabdollahian claimed that the transfer happened months before Russia's invasion of Ukraine in February and that Iran is not aware of them being used in the war.
