Apparently, russia and Iran have already taken the first steps in this direction: on January 5, the Iranian delegation visited the city of Elabuga, approximately 900 km from Moscow, where they visited an empty site that should become the site of a future plant. It is expected that such a plant "in the coming years" will be able to produce at least 6,000 drones, the publication claims.

The Iranian delegation was directly led by the executive director of the country's key defense manufacturer, Quds Aviation Industry, Hashem Damavandian and Brigadier General Abdullah Mehrabi. As it is noted, the construction of the plant is part of the agreement between the russian federation and Iran for 1 billion dollars - it is noted that Moscow, in particular, supplied Iran with trophy weapons that the occupiers captured in Ukraine.
