Abstract: Iran’s response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine was based on support for Moscow. Iran did not condemn the attack, nor did it vote in favour of the UN General Assembly resolution condemning Russia’s attack on Ukraine, like countries such as Syria and Venezuela, and merely abstained. In fact, in the form of a policy of “look to the East” and a 20-year long-term agreement, Iran has expanded relations with Russia in order to be able to use them to the leverage of the East against the West and to ensure the survival of its political system.
