I doubt that Iran is going to fulfill all these demands without a regime change.

  1. 13. Iran must end its collaboration with Russia, especially in inciting false flag operations.

    Iran lacks the resources to conduct effective Cyberattacks, Russia is the main perpetrator in that regard.

    I believe this is mostly a consequence of lifting sanctions during the Obama administration period.
