Australia has joined sanctions against four Iranian individuals and four organizations involved in the production and supply of drones to Russia, the country's Foreign Ministry said.
"Australia is joining partners to introduce additional targeted financial sanctions against four Iranian individuals and four legal entities involved in the production and supply of drones to Russia," the statement said.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Australia indicated that "Russia used Iranian-made drones to target Ukrainian citizens and civilian infrastructure."
Since around mid-September, Russia has been conducting attacks in Ukraine using kamikaze drones, which the Ukrainian military says are Iranian-made Shahed-136 drones, which the Russian occupiers label as Geran-2. On September 23, the Mohajer-6 multi-purpose strike drone of Iranian production was shot down for the first time.
Since then, the West has imposed sanctions against Iran for supplying Russia with drones.
The United States recently imposed new trade restrictions on seven Iranian companies for drone production.
And the European Union imposed sanctions against Iran's state-owned Iran Aircraft Manufacturing Industries Corporation (HESA), which produces unmanned aerial vehicles.
