What to do with 1.1 million bullets seized from Iran? US ships them to Ukraine

Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — Russia has long turned to Iranian-made drones to attack Ukraine. Now Ukrainian forces will be using bullets seized from Iran against Russia troops.

The rounds are standard for the Soviet-era Kalashnikov assault rifles that some Ukrainian military units still rely on. The transfer comes at a time when Republican congressional support for Ukraine is in question after the ouster of House Speaker Kevin McCarthy.
