Since August 2022, according to the Biden Administration, Iran has transferred armed unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs, or drones) to Russia, which has used them against a range of targets in Ukraine. U.S. officials express concern that Russia may seek to procure missiles from Iran. These transfers (and potential transfers of ballistic missiles) have implications for the trajectory of the conflict in Ukraine as well as for U.S. efforts to support Ukraine’s defense against Russia’s invasion. Other policy considerations for the Administration and for Congress include  sanctions on entities involved in the arms transfers and potential action at the United Nations (U.N.).
