Navideshahed- Etela’at Press Institute has published the book, ‘The Role of the U.S.S.R During the Iraq- Iran Imposed War’ which considers the former Soviet Union’s weaponry aides to Saddam Hussein’s government in the eight years’ war.

As Navideshahed correspondent reports, ‘The Role of the U.S.S.R [the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics] During the Iraq- Iran Imposed War’ written by Ne’mat-Ullah Izadi describes how in April 27, 1984, the former Soviet Union signed a 4.5 billion dollars agreement with Iraq which had become infuriated of the advances the Iranian-military-forces had made at that time. Based on the agreement, Russia sold new jet fighters, attack helicopters and Scud B earth-to-earth missiles to Iraq.
In order to settle the agreement, Moscow agreed to grant a 2 billion dollars loan to Baghdad which later, after the collapse of Saddam’s dictatorship turned to a challenging issue. In fact the West and the U.S.S.R both had paid loans to Iraq during war against Iran and the repayment of those loans is still a challenging issue in the Middle East and the world.
Izadi pointed out that his work considers “the cold war”?, the relations between Iran and the Soviet Union and its ties with Iraq both before and after the Islamic Revolution of 1978. The other significant issue raised in the book is the association of the Iranian Communist Party of Masses (Hezb-e Tudeh) association with the former Soviet Union.
