#2 IMO this is Russia's roundabout = PDeniable way of thraetening to close down the NDN of supply routes into Afghanistan.
Ala the "Japan/Egypt Model", as long as Iran technically or officially maintains no NucWEaps of any sort, IMO Russia believes there will be no war on Iran as the US-NATO, Israel will lack a premise for one before the UNSC where Russia has veto power.
