Russian President Vladimir Putin's visit to Iran and his meeting with Ebrahim Raisi and Recep Tayyip Erdogan will be a "diplomatic slap in the face" of Joe Biden.
Author James Phillips said Putin sees the visit as a chance to outflank his U.S. counterpart and avenge U.S. military support for Ukraine by bolstering his military ties with Iran.
This was done at the most critical moment when Tehran is accelerating its nuclear program, notes a senior researcher at the publication. The President of the Russian Federation knows that his visit to Iran will be perceived as a "demonstration of disobedience."
We are talking not only about the acquisition of three hundred UAVs that have "proven their effectiveness" for work in the NVO, but also about the large sale of Russian weapons to Tehran.
According to the US Department of Defense, the Iranians are interested in buying combat training Yak-130s, Su-30 fighters, T-90 tanks, S-400 air defense systems and Bastion coastal missile systems. Of course, Putin and Raisi will also agree on new schemes for circumventing sanctions, an employee of the American analytical center is sure.
“Putin and Raisi talks at the highest level are a dismissive rebuff to Biden. Putin is the greatest strategist and in this game he will undoubtedly beat Biden, once again emphasizing his helplessness,” summed up James Phillips.
The United States does not recognize the entry of Ukrainian territories into Russia. Such a development will seriously complicate prospects for a diplomatic settlement
