Ukraine-Russia : Ukraine is now moving towards breaking diplomatic ties with Iran due to Russia's help. The Foreign Minister of Ukraine gave this information on Tuesday. He said he would submit a proposal to President Volodymyr Zelensky to formally end diplomatic ties with Iran to aid in the Russian attacks. Let us tell you that for the past one week, Russian attacks have been going on in many cities of Ukraine. Drones loaded with explosives were used in Monday's attacks in Kyiv. Four people were killed in these attacks and buildings caught fire. The drones used by Russian forces in the attack appear to be Iran's Shahed drones.

Iran sending suicide drones to Russia?

According to media reports, Russia on Monday launched dozens of "kamikaze" drones targeting Ukraine. Ukraine says these attacks were carried out with Iranian-made Shahed-136 drones. At the same time, Iran is refusing to supply these drones to Russia. Ukraine's Foreign Minister Dimitro Kuleba said that his country is convinced that they (drones) belong to Iran. He also said he would hand over a "bag full of evidence" to European countries that have doubts.

The top European Union (EU) diplomat has said that the group is collecting evidence on Iran's alleged sale of drones to Russia and will take action against the Gulf country if the allegations prove to be true. "We are monitoring the use of drones very closely. We are gathering evidence and we will respond and use the measures we have," EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said on Monday.

Ukraine will now contact Israel

"Iran is fully responsible for the destruction of relations with Ukraine. I am presenting to the President of Ukraine a proposal to break diplomatic relations with Iran," Ukraine's Foreign Minister Kuleba told a news conference. Kuleba said that Ukraine would now contact Israel. He said he would send an official note to Israel seeking immediate air defense supplies and other assistance. There was no immediate Israeli reaction to Kuleba's remarks. However, earlier on Tuesday, Justice Minister Gideon Saar, a member of Israel's decision-making security cabinet, told Army Radio that "their support for Ukraine does not include providing weapons systems and weapons - and that position will not change." Has happened."

Zelensky may get Israeli help

Media reports quoted a top Ukrainian official as saying that Israel was helping the war-torn country. The official claimed that Israel was giving Ukraine "basic intelligence" about Iranian suicide drones. According to the report, an unidentified Ukrainian official said that an Israeli security company has also provided satellite images of Russian military presence to the Ukrainian military. Ukraine's military reportedly shot down 50 suicide drones this week, including nine in a single day alone. A Ukrainian official said the drones were not as effective as Moscow had planned because they were "slower" and "easier to shoot". It is being said that this success has been possible due to Israeli intelligence.

Not only this, recently Israel's Minister of Overseas Affairs Nachman Shai said that there are reports of possible supply of ballistic missiles by Iran to Russia. He said that military assistance should be provided to Ukraine in view of such circumstances. He wrote on Twitter, "It was reported this morning that Iran is sending ballistic missiles to Russia. There is no doubt about where Israel should stand in this bloody conflict. Time for Ukraine to get military aid as the US and NATO countries are providing."

Significantly, Israel and Iran are each other's arch enemies. There has been a proxy war between Iran and Israel for years. Iran does not recognize the Jewish state of Israel. Unfortunately, Israeli citizens are also not allowed to enter Iran. Iran has given money and also provided weapons and training to several groups, including Lebanese Hezbollah, and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ). These groups have vowed attacks on Israel.
