The UK condemns Iranian support for the Russian invasion of Ukraine: Iran's supply of drones is in violation of UN Security Council Resolution 2231. Iran is profiting from Russia's attacks on Ukrainian citizens, causing human suffering and the destruction of critical infrastructure. On 20 October, new UK sanctions targeted Iranian individuals and businesses responsible for supplying Russia with drones. On 21 October, jointly with France and Germany, we wrote to the UN Secretary General in support of a UN investigation into the Iranian transfers. We will continue to work with the international community to hold Russia and Iran to account.
