Massive technology transfers, including nuclear technology, among other things.

Both are allies with Iran, and support them militarily,economically, and politically and provide them the technology for their program. Russia is behind it, like it or not. Putin is an ex-KGB thug, and he obviously wants Iran to have nukes. It is a war against us through proxies, like the Cold War.
