Ukraine’s top security official said that Iranian military advisers have been killed in Crimea, warning that any other Iranians on occupied Ukrainian territory in support of Russia’s invasion would also be targeted.

Oleksiy Danilov, secretary of Ukraine’s national security and defence council, said Iranians were present in Crimea to help Russia use the Shahed-136 armed drones supplied by the Iran.

“You shouldn’t be where you shouldn’t be,” Oleksiy Danilov said.

“They were on our territory. We didn’t invite them here, and if they collaborate with terrorists and participate in the destruction of our nation we must kill them,” he added.

“The Iranians keep insisting that they are not suppliers of weapons to the Russian Federation but we need confirmation. Do we have this confirmation as of today? No we don’t. We understand these things don’t fly without [people] learning how to operate them, and the Russians don’t have the brains to figure it out themselves … In the modern world you can’t hide anything. It is just a matter of time when it will be made public,” Oleksiy Danilov further said.

Meanwhile, Ukraine has been battling to get water and power to millions of people cut off after Russia launched dozens of missiles that battered the country’s electricity grid.

“The situation with electricity remains difficult in almost all regions. However, we are gradually moving away from blackouts — every hour we return power to new consumers,” Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky said.

The World Health Organization has warned of “life-threatening” consequences and estimated that millions could leave their homes as a result.
