The United States spoke about military cooperation between the DPRK and Russia

The United States has information that North Korea has transferred more than a thousand containers of artillery shells to the aggressor state of Russia for use in the war against Ukraine. This information is confirmed by satellite images.

This statement was made on Wednesday, December 20, at a briefing in Washington by US Ambassador to NATO Julian Smith, Ukrinform reports. According to her, the supply of ammunition took place recently.

"According to our data, the DPRK has transferred more than a thousand containers of military equipment and ammunition to Russia," Smith said.

According to the U.S. representative, satellite footage showed the movement of these containers on cargo ships from North Korea to Russia.

Washington strongly condemns Pyongyang for helping Moscow with weapons that will undoubtedly be used by the Russians against the Ukrainian people, to shell cities and wage an illegal war, she said.

Smith also said that the United States believes that the DPRK is seeking to obtain certain military technologies from Russia in exchange for ammunition. Pyongyang's "wish list" may include surface-to-air missiles, fighter jets, armored vehicles, ballistic missile production equipment, and other weapons.

According to Bloomberg, since August 2023, the DPRK has sent more than a million artillery shells to Russia, which the aggressor needs to continue the war in Ukraine. Several North Korean instructors were also sent to the Russian occupiers to teach them how to use these warheads.

To transport ammunition from the DPRK, the Russian army uses the Danube port near Vladivostok.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, White House National Security Council Coordinator John Kirby emphasized that the governments of the Russian Federation, China, and North Korea are deepening cooperation and ties with each other. This is happening against the backdrop of these states' dissatisfaction with the current world order.
