EU imposes sanctions on Iranian drone maker and military officers | app


BRUSSELS (AP) — The European Union on Thursday imposed sanctions on Iran’s Shahed Aviation Industries and three Iranian armed forces generals for undermining Ukraine’s territorial integrity by helping to supply drones to Russia to use in the war against its neighbour.

Western-bolstered Ukrainian air defenses make it difficult for Russian warplanes to operate, and killer drones are a cheap weapon that can seek out and destroy targets while spreading fear among troops and civilians. Russia is accused of sending waves of Iranian-made Shahed drones over Ukraine to strike power plants and other key infrastructure.
