US to transfer seized Iranian weapons to Ukraine

The US has transferred over one million rounds of seized Iranian ammunition to the Ukrainian armed forces, US Central Command (CENTCOM) announced on Wednesday.

The move could help Ukraine to replenish its dwindling supplies of ammunition and continue to fight Russia while it waits for more money and weapons from the US and its allies.

“The government obtained ownership of these munitions on July 20, 2023, through the Department of Justice’s civil forfeiture claims against Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC),” the statement by CENTCOM said.

The ammunition was seized by the US Navy in December 2022 from a stateless dhow that was transporting it from Iran to Yemen.
