The OP adviser also predicted the West’s reaction to Iran’s supply of drones for the Russian Federation.
Aleksey Arestovich, adviser to the Office of the President, believes that the attack of the Russian army on Ukrainian cities using Iranian drones will receive a proper response from Western countries.
He stated this in conversations with Russian lawyer Mark Feigin.
Arestovich commented on today’s attack by Iranian drones on Ukrainian cities.
“This can mean two things: they started saving missiles or they started trying new weapons and our ways of responding to them,” he said.
The OP adviser also predicted the West’s reaction to Iran’s supply of drones for the Russian Federation. Arestovich is sure that they will be interested in these drones as a weapon of a potential rival.
“The fact that Iran imposed itself on helping Russia was very well noted in the West, especially in the United States they put it in credit, and there will be a reaction. Iran will not be forgiven for this just like that,” Arestovich emphasized.
