Journalists write that Tehran relies on information from Moscow about what is happening in the Islamic Republic.
Iran has turned to Russia for help in suppressing large-scale protests that have not subsided across the country. We are talking about providing equipment to deal with protesters, as well as training security officials. Iran International writes about this.
It is reported that earlier White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Moscow can help the Islamic Republic, based on its own experience in suppressing demonstrations.
“Evidence that “Iran is helping Russia to start a war against Ukraine is obvious and public. Iran and Russia become closer the more isolated they become,” Jean-Pierre said.
In turn, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said that the White House is confident in Russia's help in suppressing protests in Iran.
“We know that they may be considering some kind of support for the ability Iran to crack down on protesters. And, unfortunately, Russia has experience in this,” he said.
According to Oleksiy Danilov, Secretary of the National Security Council of Ukraine, Iran continues to insist that it does not help Russia with weapons. However, he is unable to confirm his words. He stated that the Iranian instructors of the Russians were liquidated in the Crimea.
