The European Union tightens sanctions against Iran

The European Council (European Summit) of the European Union in Brussels decided to strengthen existing sanctions in response to Tehran's support for Moscow in Russia's war against Ukraine.

According to the Council's statement dated May 15, "The European Council decided to increase the Union's preventive measures, taking into account Iran's military support in Russia's war against Ukraine."

Previous EU sanctions targeted Iran's UAV industry and prohibited the export of parts that could be used to build UAVs.

However, as sanctions are tightened, individuals involved in Iran's missile defense plans face not only travel restrictions, but also the freezing of their European properties.

Based on available evidence, Ukraine and Western countries accuse Iran of exporting UAVs to Russia. Iran denies these accusations.
