British journalists publish contract showing Iran sold weapons to Russia for Ukraine war

British journalists have published a contract showing that Iran has sold ammunition to Russia for its full-scale aggression against Ukraine.

That's according to Sky News, Ukrinform reports.

"This is a contract between the Iranians and the Russians regarding munitions. […] We believe it is 100% authentic," an informed security source claimed.

If authentic, the 16-page document, dated 14 September 2022, appears to be for samples of varying sizes of artillery and tank shells and rockets worth just over $1 million.

It was shared by the source along with five pages of an allegedly linked contract that includes barrels for a T-72 tank and barrels for a Howitzer artillery piece, as well as ammunition shells. That deal was worth about $740,000.

Russia's embassy and Iran's embassy to the UK respectively did not respond to a request for comment on the claims about an arms deal, nor on the authenticity of the documents.

Earlier reports said that Iran had secretly supplied large quantities of bullets, rockets and mortar shells to Russia for the war in Ukraine and planned to send more.
