Russia has military intelligence that shows that a U.S. drone was in Iranian air space when it was shot down by Iran last week, Nikolai Patrushev, Secretary of Russia’s Security Council, said Tuesday.
Speaking at a briefing for journalists in Jerusalem, Patrushev said evidence presented by the United States alleging Iran was behind attacks on ships in the Gulf of Oman was poor quality and unprofessional.
Also Tuesday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the situation around Iran was developing toward a dangerous scenario, the RIA news agency reported.
U.S. President Donald Trump targeted Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and other top Iranian officials with sanctions Monday. Iran shot down a U.S. drone last week, and Trump called off retaliatory air strikes minutes before impact.
