RUMOR Mill: Pentagon is Looking to Send Thousands of Iranian Weapons to Ukraine 

The US army has been mulling the idea of sending thousands of allegedly Iranian-produced weapons and over a million rounds of ammunition to Ukraine as part of its latest push to prolong the Russo-Ukrainian conflict .

Per anonymous US and European officials who were in contact with the Wall Street Journal (WSJ), the arsenal would consist of over 5,000 assault rifles, 1.6 million rounds of small arms ammunition, a small quantity of anti-tank missiles, and over 7,000 proximity fuses that were recently seized in the Gulf of Oman supposedly en route to Yemen, per a report by The Cradle. 

Although this weapons shipment pales in comparison to what the Collective West has sent to Ukraine in the last year, American officials see this shipment as a symbolic punishment for Iran for allegedly arming Russia with drones, which both Iran and Russia have repeatedly denied. 

“It’s a message to take weapons meant to arm Iran’s proxies and flip them to achieve our priorities in Ukraine, where Iran is providing arms to Russia,” one American official said to the WSJ.

Though as The Cradle reported sending such weapons from one conflict (Yemeni Civil War) to another (Russo-Ukrainian conflict) is still a legal challenge for the US, due to how the UN arms embargo on Iran mandates members of the Collective West to destroy, store, or get rid of the confiscated weapons. 

According to the WSJ, the Biden regime could potentially jump over this legal hurdle “by crafting an executive order, or working with Congress to empower the US to seize the weapons under civil forfeiture authorities and send them to Ukraine.”

Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022, the US and its satrapies in NATO have been sending constant streams of weapons to Ukraine to try to bleed Russia dry in a geopolitical quagmire. Russian officials have warned NATO member states that the continuation of arms supplies to Ukraine will potentially make them direct parties to this conflict.
