U.S., EU impose sanctions on Iran

The United States and the EU have imposed sanctions on four Iranian entities and one individual connected to the development, manufacture, and proliferation of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), which Tehran has provided to Russia for use in its war against Ukraine, the U.S. State Department said. “The Iranian regime provides to Russia and militant proxies and partners [UAVs] to prolong conflict and destabilize the region,” the statement said. The action targets four entities associated with U.S.-designated Rayan Roshd Afzar Company; an Iranian executive of Iran Aviation Industries Organization; a subsidiary of the U.S.-designated Iranian Ministry of Defense and Armed Forces Logistics, which oversees UAV manufacturers, including Iran Aircraft Manufacturing Industrial Company; and Qods Aviation Industries.
