Russia will support Iran and its nuclear program in exchange for Tehran sending drones and missiles to aid its conflict in Ukraine, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said as he blasted Israel on Monday.

“How does Russia pay Iran for this, in your opinion? Is Iran just interested in money? Probably not money at all, but Russian assistance to the Iranian nuclear program. Probably, this is exactly the meaning of their alliance,” Zelenskyy said in a speech via video at a Haaretz conference.

“This is the decision of your governments…not to annoy the Kremlin, which was adopted a long time ago,” Zelenskyy said.

“If we had immediately secured our skies when faced with a missile and drone threat, Russia would not even have a motive now to go to Iran and offer it something in exchange for assistance in terror,” the Ukrainian president said.
