The Shocking American Links to Putin's Deadly War Machines
Luis G. Rendon/The Daily Beast/GettyVladimir Putin's brutal bombing campaign against Ukraine's civilian population does not seem to be letting up. With the help of Iranian drones, relentless Russian attacks have killed scores of innocent civilians in recent months. They've also threatened power plants and other critical civilian infrastructure across the country, putting millions at risk of freezing this winter.

While Russia's campaign to attack civilians with Iranian drones is well-known, new evidence shows that the drones themselves are heavily reliant on parts made by U.S. manufacturers, calling into question the effectiveness of international sanctions as well as what actions the U.S. and others can take to curb the flow of Iranian weapons into Russian hands.

A new report from Conflict Armaments Research (CAR), an organization that works with the European Union and other partners to trace international arms flows, found a shockingly high level of American and European parts in Iranian drones. CAR researchers had access to the now infamous Shahed-136 as well as a Mohajer-6, two kinds of Iranian drones used in Ukraine against military and civilian targets. Their analysis found that the drones are "almost exclusively made of components based in Asia, Europe, and the United States."
