The official representative of the Iranian Foreign Ministry, Nasser Kanaani, condemned the words of Mikhail Podolyak, adviser to the head of the office of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, and called Kyiv to account in connection with his statements about the attack on a military facility in Isfahan.

“The representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned the hostile and provocative position of the adviser to the President of Ukraine, called his statements regarding the recent destructive action against the military complex in Isfahan suspicious and demanded an official and clear explanation from the Ukrainian side on this matter,” the publication says.
On January 29, after a drone attack on a military plant in Isfahan, Podolyak wrote on his Twitter that Kyiv had “warned” Tehran. He attached a screenshot of a post dated December 24 to the post. In which he calls for the use of “more destructive tools” against the Iranian side because of the alleged cooperation with Russia.
The next day, the Chargé d’Affaires of Ukraine in Tehran was summoned to the country’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs to clarify Podolyak’s comments about what happened in Isfahan.
On January 29, American journalist Max Blumenthal pointed out that the reaction of the Ukrainian authorities to the attacks on Iran strengthens the role of Kyiv as a supporter of the start of the third world war. He wrote about this on his Twitter.
A powerful explosion thundered at a military plant in Isfahan on the night of January 29. Later, the Russian Embassy in Iran clarified that the object was attacked by drones. The Al Arabiya TV channel also said that the United States and “another country” had attacked the plant.
