Russia has received more than 400 unmanned aerial vehicles from Iran since August 2022 and is seeking more advanced versions, according to U.S. National Security Council spokesman John Kirby. In return, Iran is seeking helicopters, radars, and combat trainer aircraft. According to Kirby, the United States has not seen evidence of Iranian ballistic missile transfers to Russia.
