The US White House says North Korea has supplied weapons to Russia for use in the war in Ukraine.
The US has long expected North Korea to supply Russia with weapons. Last month, talks between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and Russian President Vladimir Putin took place.
According to Washington, more than a thousand weapons containers have now been delivered. White House press secretary John Kirby said the US condemned North Korea’s export and would continue to monitor whether more weapons were sent to Russia.
Last week, satellite images showed an “unprecedented number” of freight wagons crossing the border between North Korea and Russia, research center Beyond Parallel reported. An anonymous source in the US government also told CBS News that deliveries had begun.
Russia could use its weapons well in a war with Ukraine. The war seems to be turning into a war zone and Ukraine is receiving many weapons from Western allies.
