“The information that appeared in some media about the supply of Iranian weapons to Russia is fake and does not correspond with reality,” the Russian Embassy said in a statement posted on its Twitter account on Sunday.

The Guardian claimed in a story on April 11 that Russia was receiving munitions and military hardware sourced from Iraq for the war in Ukraine with the help of what it called Iranian weapons smuggling networks.

It said that RPGs and anti-tank missiles, as well as Brazilian-designed rocket launcher systems, have been dispatched to Russia from Iraq, claiming that an Iranian-made Bavar 373 missile system had also been donated to Moscow by the authorities in Tehran, who also returned an S-300.

Iranian officials have repeatedly called for the political resolution of the Ukraine crisis, hoping that the negotiations between the two warring sides would result in stability and peace.
