Office of the President of Russia

A top North Korean military official on Monday criticised the United States over its expanding military assistance to Ukraine, reaffirming the reclusive state’s support for Moscow in the Ukraine war, according to state media KCNA.

Washington and Seoul have been increasingly alarmed by deepening military cooperation between Russia and the North, and have accused them of violating international laws by trading in arms for Russia to use against Ukraine. Moscow and Pyongyang have denied any arms transfer.
