The head of Russia's air force, General Viktor Bondarev, got an interesting present during his visit to Iran - an Iranian copy of a US spy drone ScanEagle. The drone represents "the technical capabilities of the Islamic Iran," according to The Guardian.

The Yasseer drone was provided to Russia on the sidelines of a meeting in Tehran between Bondarev and Farzad Esmayeeli, the air defense commander of Khatam al-Anbia, the Revolutionary Guards' military and industrial base.
"The drone built by the Islamic republic's Revolutionary Guards is a symbol of the technical capabilities of the Islamic Iran and today we presented a real model of it as a gift to Russian air force … and the Russian people," Esmayeeli said after meeting.

NATO continues to surround the Russian Federation with their missiles, which according to Mr. Rozoff, may soon number in the thousands and NATO also continues to aggressively seek to "integrate" country after country into their "alliance".

Robles: Can you give our listeners an update on the latest happenings with NATO please?
