US accuses North Korea of ​​sending weapons to Russia

White House spokesman John Kirby said they are tracking howitzers that Pyongyang would have sent to the Russians to prevent them from reaching their destination.

The United States accused North Korea this Wednesday (02.11.2022) of sending a “significant” amount of projectiles to Russia for the war in Ukraine, although it is not sure that they have been received by Russian troops.

John Kirby, one of the White House spokesmen, explained that the United States has information about these arms shipments and assured that North Korea is diverting these deliveries to countries in the Middle East and North Africa to hide that its objective is to help Russia in the war in Ukraine. Asked by the press, Kirby said that the United States is closely monitoring these arms deliveries to see if they end up in Russian hands.

Kirby said such deliveries from North Korea are “bad news” but “will not change the course of the war” because the Ukrainians still have the “ability and capabilities” to defend themselves against Russia. According to Kirby, the fact that Moscow turns to countries like North Korea and Iran for weapons shows the poor state of Russia’s military reserves after eight months of war in Ukraine.

Ukraine has received a large quantity of weaponry from the West since the start of the Russian invasion in February. The United States alone has delivered $18.2 billion in military aid to Ukraine since President Joe Biden entered the White House in January 2021, a figure that has risen significantly since the start of the war.
