Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has accused Iran of taking “blood money” from Russia for supplying “kamikaze” drones used in deadly attacks against cities, including Kyiv, Zelensky said in an interview with Canada’s CTV on Wednesday, ONA reports.
The use of drones in the war in Ukraine has increased since the summer when the United States and Kyiv say Moscow acquired Shahed-136 drones from Iran. Tehran has denied supplying weapons to Russia despite evidence to the contrary.
“I do not trust the leadership of Iran,” Zelensky stated.
“They publicly denied all that, saying that we didn’t sell anything, but here we see. Hundreds of strikes. At Ukraine, at the capital, at civil infrastructure, at schools, nearby the university, at the university, and the shutting down of our energy system.”
