By India Today Web Desk: As Ukraine reels from a series of drone strikes by Russian forces, Iran has promised to provide Russia with more drones and surface to surface ballistic missiles. This comes after Russia launched dozens of “kamikaze” drones in Ukraine on Monday, striking energy infrastructure and killing several civilians.

Meanwhile, Nato chief Jens Stoltenberg on Tuesday said the group will deliver air defence systems to Ukraine to help defend itself against the drones, including those from Iran.

Here are the top developments:

  • Two senior Iranian officials and two Iranian diplomats told Reuters that Iran has promised to provide Russia with more drones and surface to surface missiles.

    The shipment was confirmed by a Western official who was briefed on the matter. The official said there was an agreement in place between Iran and Russia to provide surface-to-surface short range ballistic missiles.

    A deal was made between the two countries when Iran’s Vice President Mohammad Mokhber and other officials visited Moscow on October 6.

  • Following the series of drone attacks by Russian forces, Ukraine’s foreign minister Dmytro Kuleba on Tuesday said he was submitting a proposal to President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to formally cut diplomatic ties with Iran.

    Kuleba said he had urged the European Union to impose sanctions on Iran “for helping Russia to kill Ukrainians.”

  • Nato chief Jens Stoltenberg while addressing a security conference in Berlin said the group will deliver air defence systems to Ukraine to help the country defend itself against drone attacks.

    “The most important thing we can do is deliver on what allies have promised, to step up and deliver even more air defence systems,” he said.

  • Vladimir Saldo, the Russian-installed chief of the occupied Kherson in Ukraine, said some civilians would be evacuated. He said the evacuation is on account of a risk of an attack by Kyiv’s forces.

    He added that given the risk of Ukrainian shelling damaging a nearby dam, residents in four towns would be moved away from the Dnipro river.

  • A day after Ukraine’s authorities said two staff from the Russian-held Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant was “kidnapped” by Russian forces, the UN nuclear watchdog said its chief is concerned by the incident.
