Iran has signed a deal to supply Russia with surface-to-surface ballistic missiles and additional drones, Reuters reports, citing four Iranian officials.

The deal was forged on October 6 when Iran’s First Vice President Mohammad Mokhber led a senior security delegation to Mocow, Reuters says.

“The Russians had asked for more drones and those Iranian ballistic missiles with improved accuracy, particularly the Fateh and Zolfaghar missiles family,” an Iranian diplomat tells Reuters.

The report comes after Russia launched a wave of attacks on Ukraine using Iranian drones.
