London announces: Russia has used up its stockpiles of Iranian weapons

The British MoD has estimated that Russia has used up nearly all of its current stockpile of Iranian-made weapons and will seek to obtain more of these supplies.

The ministry said yesterday in a daily intelligence update on ‘Twitter’: that Russia has launched a series of Iranian-made drones in its war against Ukraine since last September, and indicated that Russian attacks mix the use of drones with systems of conventional weapons that can be reused, and the military is using Russian drones for attacks on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure.

The Washington Post on Sunday quoted 3 government officials, who are linked to intelligence findings known to the United States and other Western security services, as saying that Tehran is currently delivering “key blueprints and components” to Moscow to start production.

On land, a newborn was killed in a rocket attack on a maternity ward of a hospital in the Zaporizhia region of southern Ukraine, Ukrainian authorities reported yesterday. Rescuers pulled the child’s mother and a doctor out of the rubble while they were still alive.

Oleksandr Starukh, the governor of Zaporizhia, said the missiles used in the attack were Russian.

Crimea, which is under Russian control in Ukraine was attacked by drones while Russian forces were in state of alert, as announced by the authorities appointed by Moscow.

The governor of the Sevastopol administrative region in Crimea said on “Telegram” that the region was attacked by marches and explained that two marches had been “shot down so far”. He confirmed that no civilian infrastructure was damaged and called on residents to remain calm.

Ukraine has experienced unusually mild temperatures this fall, but temperatures are starting to dip below the zero and temperatures are expected to reach -20 degrees Celsius or even lower in some areas during the winter months.

Russia targets Ukrainian energy facilities in winter, after a series of battlefield setbacks, including the withdrawal of Russian forces from the southern city of Kherson to the east bank of the Dnipro River, which runs through the center of the country.
