Debunking Hegemon USA’s Big Lies About Russia and Iran

The empire of lies and forever wars on invented enemies, its Western vassals and MSM press agents have been exposed time and again as serial liars on all things related to nations free from US control, as well as on other major issues.

For months, Iran has been falsely accused of selling UAVs to aid Russia’s liberating SMO — its legitimate right if so chooses.

On Wednesday during a closed-door Security Council session, Iran’s UN envoy, Amir Saeid Iravani, said the following:

“The Islamic Republic of Iran has taken a clear and consistent position on the situation in Ukraine which has been pronounced since the start of the conflict.”

Calling for resolution, Iravani stressed that “Iran consistently advocated for peace and an immediate end to the conflict in Ukraine,” adding:

The US-dominated West is waging a “disinformation campaign against Iran.”

It includes a “misleading interpretation of Security Council Resolution 2231 (by attempting to falsely) link their baseless allegations against Iran with this resolution.”

“Iran emphasized that issues surrounding the conflict in Ukraine are completely irrelevant to Resolution 2231 both in substance and format, and any activity in this regard falls outside the scope of the resolution and secretariat mandate.”

“(N)one of its arms exports” violate the Security Council resolution or other international law.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran will continue its constructive engagement to help the peaceful resolution of the conflict in Ukraine.”

Wednesday’s closed door SC session was called for by hegemon USA and UK/French vassals” after Ukrainian Nazis made false claims about Iranian UAV sales to aid Russia’s ongoing SMO.

Separately on Wednesday, Iranian Foreign Minister, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, said the following:

“We told Ukrainian officials to produce any evidence on deployment of Iranian drones in the Ukraine war.”

They submitted none because there’s nothing to reveal beyond baseless allegations.

During Wednesday’s Security Council session, Russia’s Deputy UN envoy, Dmitry Polyansky, minced no words as follows, saying:

“Today we observed another round of disinformation…by (US)/Western (regimes), as they raised the (fabricated) issue of (Iranian) UAVs allegedly used by Russia in Ukraine.”

They targeted the Russian Federation and Islamic Republic of Iran with baseless accusations in the same SC session.

At the same time, they were silent about supplying Ukrainian Nazis with regular shipments of weapons, munitions and equipment since 2014 — for aggression against Donbass civilians and Russia since launching its liberating SMO.

Nor did they explain their involvement in training Ukrainian troops, supplying them with intelligence and choosing targets for them to strike — in pursuit of waging perpetual war on Russia.

“We have seen such baseless allegations and conspiracy theories before, never any evidence being presented to the Council,” Polyansky stressed, adding:

“I would like to stress that the UAVs used by the Russian army in Ukraine are manufactured in Russia.”

Claims otherwise are “baseless allegations.”

“You can see the labels ‘Geran’ — which means ‘geranium’, the flower, in Russian, — on the outer shell of these UAVs.”

As stressed by Iran during Wednesday’s SC session, “no arms transfers (were made) in violation of” international law.

“No drones were supplied by Iran to Russia for the use in the conflict in Ukraine.”

“Do not underestimate the technological capabilities of the Russian drone industry.”

And all things related to them are unrelated to SC Res. 2231.

What unanimously affirmed the landmark JCPOA, Iran observed to the letter.

It was in stark contrast to multiple hegemon USA breaches — before Trump disgracefully abandoned it based on bald-faced Big Lies.

Notable for their double-standard hypocrisy, the US-dominated West “is in flagrant violation of” SC Res. 2231, Polyansky stressed — while falsely blaming Russia and Iran for their own flagrant breaches of international law.

While the configuration of Russian UAVs resemble Iranian (and US) ones, when debris is examined on the ground after striking targets, “inscriptions (are) in Russian,” not Farsi.

In response to fabricated accusations about Russia striking civilian targets with UAVs or other weapons, they’ve been “repeatedly debunked,” including by Ukrainians “inadvertently.”

Like other Russian weapons, its UAVs are high-precision.

At rare times when civilian targets are hit, it’s because of debris when damaged or destroyed in flight by the regime’s air defense system.

On how the empire of lies and forever wars on invented enemies operates, Polyansky stressed:

Its ruling regimes think they have “the right to do anything, unlike other countries” — no matter how flagrantly in breach of international, as well as its own constitutional and statute laws.
