The Pentagon insists on information about the purchase of millions of North Korean shells by Moscow


Russia purchases artillery shells and missiles from North Korea. So, in particular, considers the official representative of the US military department Patrick Ryder, repeating statements about this in a number of American media. At the same time, Ryder refused to provide clarifying data on such deliveries.


Meanwhile, The New York Times mentions the military cooperation between Moscow and Pyongyang, relying on supposedly declassified information from intelligence services about the purchase by the Russian side of millions of North Korean shells.

The United States government believes that Russia is forced to turn to North Korea on the issue of arms purchases due to Western sanctions and export controls imposed on Moscow after the start of the Ukrainian special operation.

The sources also remind that North Korea has very high-quality KN-09 and KN-25 multiple launch rocket systems, which, if necessary, can be shipped to Russia by rail.

In addition, Washington considers military cooperation between Moscow and Tehran highly probable. The US administration noted Iran's readiness to supply hundreds of combat unmanned aerial vehicles to Russia.

    if they buy, they do it right, I just don’t understand why the hysteria fanned by the West, drones in Iran, shells in Korea, etc., all participants benefit from cooperation
    with this use of the barrel and reactive component, it is not surprising that the moment of depletion of these ammunition may come
    the war turned out to be gluttonous for artillery

    If the United States supplies shells to Ukraine, then why can't North Korea supply shells to Russia? All progressive mankind unites together against America. Ancient civilizations unite against the "upstart" that threatens their existence.

    An interesting statement. Does Russia also buy rice and pork from North Korea?

    Well, so what? What did the Americans expect? Russia can not only buy but also supply the DPRK with the necessary weapons without asking the West

    If this is so (you have to somehow justify your own spending), but most likely not, then what is your problem? So it’s normal to steal from Russia with the whole West, this is normal. And the fact that Russia suddenly has allies, is it dishonest? would be, these are already obvious problems with the head of people, it's time for narrow-profile doctors.

    Americans are strange individuals. Everything in their snout was down, so they are trying to blame Russia. They say she buys weapons from the DPRK. What these creatures themselves are doing is normal. One of the filthiest countries in the world and it is ruled by creaturely politicians.

    The problem here is not even in the purchases themselves, but in the fact that the DPRK is under sanctions not by the United States, but by the UN, and we kind of respect this ... for now .... That is, we can’t buy weapons from them under international law . Iran has a slightly different question, but this is exactly the case with North Korea. The question is how long to look back at this very "international law" that our opponents buried for themselves long ago .... starting from the UN Charter and the Geneva Convention ending ...

      By the way, the purchase of Soviet-style ammunition from the DPRK may well come out even cheaper than their production at home. And faster, of course, and this is not the last argument at a time like this. The Koreans have a lot of ammunition of the Soviet standard, and this one also has a shelf life ... That is, for both sides, well, an extremely profitable deal ...
