North Korea accused of supplying weapons to Russia
“Shipping ammunition to Russia under cover of shipping via African countries”
US National Security Spokesman John Kirby provided information
Washington. In the midst of the Russo-Ukrainian war, the United States asked North Korea to supply arms to Russia. The United States said Wednesday that North Korea was doing this covertly, sending large quantities of munitions to Russia under the guise of shipments via countries in the Middle East and North Africa. White House national security spokesman John Kirby said U.S. officials did not know if Russia had found the munitions, but were trying to monitor the shipment, Reuters reported.
Kirby said North Korea is supplying arms to Russia for the war in Ukraine and showing the world that the real destination for arms shipments is a country in the Middle East or North Africa. Kirby added that “we will check to see if the shipments have been received.”

This is not the first time the United States has made this claim, with the United States also claiming North Korea in September, saying Russia is buying millions of rockets and shells from artillery to North Korea for use in Ukraine, to which Kirby said that said, “the purchase is complete and there are no indications that these weapons are being used inside Ukraine.” However, Pyongyang denied the White House claim.
