European Union nations began discussing how to react to Russia’s possible use of Iranian drones in its war in Ukraine as the bloc sanctioned Iran’s morality police and other entities over human-rights violations related to the death of a young woman in police custody.

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said he addressed a meeting Monday of EU foreign ministers by videoconference from a bomb shelter in Kyiv to ask the bloc to impose new sanctions on Iran for providing drones to Russia.
