Putin Agrees To RARE Meeting – It Happened!
(WatchDogReport.org) – It sounds like it could be the beginning of a joke — three presidents flew into Tehran, Iran … But, it’s no laughing matter that Russian President Vladimir Putin is meeting with Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi separately and as a group. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) labeled them the new “Axis of Evil” who will be plotting against the United States and its allies because of the policies of President Joe Biden.
Putin's visit to Iran today should tell you all you need to know.
The new Axis of Evil is scheming against the U.S. and our allies because President Biden has given them the runway they need.
We cannot continue to sit back and watch it happen.

White House officials have said they believe Putin intends to work a deal with the Islamic Republic for a large number of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) to aid in the war he launched against Ukraine. According to National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, the Kremlin has sent at least two groups to view weapons-capable drones at Iran’s Kashan Airfield since June.
Both Putin and now Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei have claimed the move into Ukraine was necessary because of NATO’s aggressive nature. The Ayatollah said the Western nations would have used military force to take back the Crimean Peninsula that Russia “annexed” in 2014. Russia’s government-run news service TASS said that Moscow-Tehran relations are friendly, steeped in history, and that a new treaty between the two is being prepared.
