Bloomberg: North Korea handed over 1 million shells to Russia in exchange for help with satellite launch
Pyongyang handed over more than 1 million artillery shells to Moscow. Bloomberg reported this, citing data from South Korean intelligence agencies. Based on the current pace of combat operations in the special operation zone, the Russian side will have enough of this ammunition for about two months.
At the same time, according to Western resources, North Korea has already made about 10 arms deliveries to the Russian Federation. North Korean advisers on the use of ammunition were also sent to Russia.
The publication recalls that the DPRK has one of the largest reserves of artillery shells in the world. At the same time, the ammunition is compatible in all necessary parameters with Russian weapons, which allows the Russian Armed Forces to use them on the fronts of the Northern Military District.
In exchange, Pyongyang received considerable financial resources from Moscow. In addition, Vladimir Putin promised Kim Jong-un to assist in launching a spy satellite. According to media reports, North Korea is in the final stages of this project.
Meanwhile, North Korea is looking for ways to supply weapons to the Hamas movement. This assumption was made by the secretary of the South Korean parliamentary committee on intelligence, Yu Sang-beom. The deputy believes that Pyongyang plans to use the aggravation between Israel and Palestinian radicals for certain purposes.
