In Ukraine, at least 10 Iranian instructors who helped the Russian military launch drones were killed. The KAN news cited a Ukrainian official who wished to remain anonymous in reporting this, the Jerusalem Post reported.
According to the reports, the Ukrainian army launched strikes on Russian positions and killed off 10 Iranians who had been teaching the Russian invaders how to use drones to hit targets in Ukraine. To launch Shahed-136 kamikaze drones and teach the Russian invaders in their control, Moscow deployed Iranian instructors to the temporarily held Kherson region and Crimea.

The Iranian instructors deployed by Russia in the occupied territories, according to the Ukrainian media, are part of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.
45 more Iranian advisors arrive to Crimea – reports
The Iranian government is preparing to send a fresh team of advisors to help the Russian invading forces use a brand-new UAV called the “Arash-2” and Iranian surface-to-surface missiles, which are soon to be sent to Russia, in combat, according to the Israeli media.
Their sources report the arrival in the village of Jankoy of around 45 advisers from the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps to help Russian invading forces with the combat deployment and utilization of UAVs like “Shahed-136” and “Mohajer-6.”
Israeli-Russian relations will become even more tense as a result of the growth of such links between Russia and the anti-Israel Iranian regime, the Israeli media report.
Iranian instructors monitor deadly drone launches in Ukraine
The Iranian instructors “personally monitor the drone launches at civilian targets in Ukraine, including strikes on Mykolaiv and Odesa,” a Ukrainian official claimed.
Why Iran is assisting Russia was a topic that the Institute for the Study of War tried to address. According to the report’s authors, Iran considers China and Russia as strategic allies, those who purportedly “will assist in overthrowing American dominance”. Iran is helping the Russian government even as Ukraine holds its successful resistance to Russian invasion.
EU adopted sanctions against Iran over drones supply to Russia
The European Union adopted new sanctions against Iran over the supply of the Shahed kamikaze drones to Russia. Restrictions are applied against organizations that supply Iranian drones to Moscow. Sanctions came into force on October 20, just days after the reports of the usage of Iranian-made drones by Russia against Ukraine were confirmed.
