North Korea is secretly supplying Russia with artillery shells . We are talking about a “significant amount” of ammunition.

John Kirby, National Security Council strategic communications coordinator , told CNN that the White House has information to back this up.

“In September, the DPRK publicly denied that it intends to supply ammunition to Russia. However, our information indicates that the DPRK is secretly supplying a significant amount of artillery shells for Russia’s war against Ukraine,” he said.

However, the DPRK is trying to hide the final destination of the artillery shells. Pyongyang pretends that the weapons go to the countries of the Middle East or North Africa. Kirby promised that the US would follow up to see if these supplies were received

War in Ukraine: the role of the DPRK

The media reported that the DPRK could supply weapons to Russia, but this was quickly denied in the country . At the same time, North Korea stressed that they do not recognize the sanctions against Russia that were imposed for its attack on Ukraine.

U.S. State Department Deputy Spokesman Vedant Patel said earlier that Russia was “purchasing millions of missiles and artillery shells from North Korea for use in Ukraine.”

Any agreement to buy weapons from North Korea is a violation of UN resolutions aimed at banning the spread of weapons from Pyongyang.

However, just yesterday, US Department of Defense spokesman General Patrick Ryder said that China and North Korea did not supply Russia with weapons or other military assistance.

    • Second that.
      Why on earth didn’t they get punished really really hard?
      I have the feeling Iran, North Korea, Russia and China all need a good pounding.

      On the other hand, I don’t want a new world war. But I have the feeling it is inevitable. I think China is going to attack Taiwan.

      The West has failed miserably for decades. We should have never tolerated this crappy undemocratic regimes.

      And we still do. Why do we even have any trade with China? Still.

      • Greed has always been stronger than righteousness. We are destroying our planet just for some profit, so supporting trash countries through trade is peanuts.

        • The Wal*Mart concept was originally based on the idea to make many things affordable for poor people, produced in China. It was never intended that expensive brands like Levis, Diesel, Apple etc. would also move their production to China – destroying millions of jobs in the USA. Greedy fuckerz ruined the free world.

  1. IMO WWIII started when putin invaded back in February. Then confirmed when they left Bucha. Putin has made a new axis of evil and as you said, China is leading it. Russia, China, Iran, Belarus and some fringe regimes will probably help. Then when China invades Taiwan it will be apparent and after putin uses a nuke it will be confirmed.
    Trump put heavy tariffs on China but China Joe didn’t like them. Or rather he friends in China didn’t like them.
