Russia attacks Ukraine with North Korean weapons.

For the first time, Russia has attacked Ukraine with North Korean missiles. After the attack, many skyscrapers shattered like cards and a deep crater was formed in the ground. More than 7 people have died in this attack. This claim has been made in the American newspaper New York Times. Here America’s aid money has ended. So now Zelensky has had to run to Iran for help. Russia has used North Korean missiles to attack Ukrainian targets in recent weeks as the United States is running out of money to provide more military aid to Ukraine, US officials said Thursday.

America said that Ukraine is now in talks with Iran to secure more ballistic weapons in such a situation. National Security Council spokesman John Kirby told reporters at the White House that Moscow has fired Pyongyang’s rockets at Ukraine at least twice in recent weeks, as it tightens ties with other US adversaries. He said, “Because of our sanctions and export controls, Russia has become increasingly isolated on the world stage and has been forced to look to like-minded states for military equipment. One of those states is North Korea. Is.

Attack with missiles with a range of 885 kilometers

According to Kirby, the North Korean missiles Russia has used on Ukraine. She can reach targets up to 885 kilometers away. Russia launched its first North Korean missile on December 30 – a day after Moscow fired 122 missiles and 36 drones in what Ukraine called the largest airstrike of the war. The missile fell in an open field in the Zaporizhia region of south-eastern Ukraine, Kirby said. Then on January 2, the Kremlin fired “numerous” North Korean missiles at Ukraine, “including an air strike overnight that day,” Kirby said. The US is still assessing the impact of those attacks. “We hope that Russia and North Korea will learn from these launches, and we anticipate that Russia will use additional North Korean missiles to target Ukrainian civilian infrastructure and kill innocent Ukrainian civilians,” he said.

North Korea asked for these weapons from Russia in return

Kirby said that in return for Russia’s assistance, Pyongyang is seeking military assistance from Russia, including fighter aircraft, surface-to-air missiles, armored vehicles, ballistic missile production equipment or materials, and other advanced technologies. He said, “This will have security implications on the Korean Peninsula and the Indo-Pacific region.” North Korea is doing this to bully its neighboring countries by taking these weapons from Russia.
