"Iran has provided Russia with a consistent stream of weapons and ammunition which is being used to kill civilians in Ukraine," Cleverly said in a statement.

In return, Moscow supplies Iran with sophisticated military technology, financial support, and advice that the Iranian regime could use to threaten countries in the Middle East and suppress protests.

This week, Sky News revealed a purported arms deal that a security source said offered the first hard evidence that Iran has sold ammunition to the Russian Federation for its war in Ukraine.
