Russia would be buying artillery shells from North Korea, according to US Intelligence

MADRID, 6 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) -

The Russian authorities would be buying artillery shells and rockets from North Korea in the context of the war in Ukraine, unleashed on February 24 by order of Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to a US intelligence report collected by the newspaper 'The New York Times'.

Official US sources quoted by this medium have indicated that Moscow's decision to turn to Iran and North Korea to obtain weapons is a sign that sanctions and export control mechanisms are damaging Russia's ability to obtain this type of weapons. supplies.

The United States has not given details about the weapons or the amount that Russia would have obtained from North Korea and 'The New York Times' itself has highlighted that it is not possible to independently verify this purchase, although a US official has added that the Russian authorities plan to continue with these transactions.

The White House began to declassify intelligence reports on Moscow's military plans before the invasion of Ukraine and after a break in these publications it has begun to reveal this information to try to show the military problems that Moscow is facing in the framework of the war, including the alleged purchase of drones from Iran.

In this sense, the US authorities have indicated that affecting the military supply chain is a central part of Washington's strategy to weaken Russia and undermine its offensive against Ukraine, without Moscow having commented so far on the information in 'The New York Times'.

For its part, Ukraine announced in July the severance of diplomatic relations with North Korea after Pyongyang joined Moscow and Damascus in recognizing the independence of the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Luhansk, located in the Donbas region ( east) and the scene of an armed conflict since 2014.
