Russia has already received about 400 ballistic missiles from Iran

Feb 21, 2024

Since the beginning of 2024, Iran has already sent several batches of its surface-to-surface ballistic missiles to Russia as part of agreements to deepen cooperation between the two countries.

Reuters learned this from six sources.

According to three Iranian Reuters sources, Iran has provided Russia with about 400 missiles, most of which belong to the Fateh-110 group of short-range Iranian ballistic missiles. Some of them have a range of 300 to 700 kilometers.


One source clarified that the missiles began to be sent to Russia in early January as part of the agreements concluded at the end of 2023 during meetings at the level of military and intelligence services in Tehran and Moscow. Some deliveries were made by air, some by ship across the Caspian Sea, and others were transported by plane.

"There will be even more deliveries. There is no reason to hide it. We are allowed to export weapons to any country we want," an unnamed Iranian official told Reuters.

At the same time, one of the Iranian sources said that Tehran's military partnership with Moscow "demonstrated Iran's defense capabilities to the world" and "does not mean that we are taking Russia's side in the Ukrainian conflict."
