US Intelligence Says Russia Has Turned To North Korea For Arms Resupply

Image: AP

Originally published on ZeroHedge

A newly declassified intelligence report is alleging that Russia is buying millions of artillery shells and rockets from North Korea, in what US officials say is the latest sign of desperation amid depleting Russian munitions after six months of war in Ukraine.

“The United States provided few details from the declassified intelligence about the exact weaponry, timing or size of the shipment, and there is no way yet to independently verify the sale,” according to The New York Times, which was the first to reveal the declassified US intelligence. “A U.S. official said that, beyond short-range rockets and artillery shells, Russia was expected to try to purchase additional North Korean equipment going forward.”

A month ago, Western media reports were widely circulating which said North Korea offered Russia up to 100,000 of its own troops to fight in Ukraine, however, the story was dubious and lacked evidence, with no statements from DPRK state media itself to back the claim.

What has been confirmed since then, is a major deal by Moscow for the purchase of hundreds of Iranian-manufactured drones for use on the battlefield in Ukraine. There have since been reports that the drones have serious problems, and may not be functioning properly, making them less of a threat for Ukraine’s defense systems to contend with.

Commenting on the new US intelligence alleging the North Korea weapons link, one anonymous US official told The Associated Press that it shows “the Russian military continues to suffer from severe supply shortages in Ukraine, due in part to export controls and sanctions.”

What is clear is that North Korea has taken steps to demonstrate its approval of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, in July becoming the second outside country after Syria to recognize the independence of the breakaway Donetsk and Luhansk republics.

There could be new sanctions repercussions for Pyongyang if it is caught exporting military equipment to Russia. “The North’s arms export to Russia would be a violation of U.N. resolutions that ban the country from exporting to or importing weapons from other countries,” the AP writes.

“Its possible dispatch of laborers to the Russian-held territories in Ukraine would also breach a U.N. resolution that required all member states to repatriate all North Korean workers from their soil by 2019,” AP continues.

But it remains, as AP also observes, “There have been suspicions that China and Russia haven’t fully enforced U.N. sanctions on North Korea, complicating a U.S.-led attempt to deprive North Korea of its nuclear weapons.”

Objectively speaking, Russia is fighting all of NATO criminal hyena pack on its own and has basically defeated them, despite NATO, Zionists and particularly American cowards and British low life backstabbers supplying the cannon fodder suicidal Jew led AFU with over $220 billion worth of weapons. Russia’s only true friends are DPRK, Iran, Belarus, Cuba aand Syria. The Chinese are a total disappointment as they worship the western money.

It is no coincidence that on his only foreign visit since the start of Operation Z, President Putin visited Iran and held highly confidential one on one two hour meeting with the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei, an Azeri fluent in Russian and a great thinker on geo-strategic issues. After the meeting the Iranians openly came out to support Russia and stated that “if President Putin had not initiated the deNazification operation in Russian Ukraine, the NATO criminal warmongers would have attacked Russia anyway”. So it is logical for Russia to turn to its time tested Persian and DPRK friends. Many Russians lost their lives defending Korea from the American criminals in the 1950’s.

It is good to see that DPRK is also supporting Russia. Both Iran and DPRK have good ties and great industrial capacity. Russia is thinking strategically as the world power balance has truly shifted to Eurasia. It is quite humiliating that NATO criminals could not even launch a basic “counter offensive” against Russia, despite buying weapons from such beggar failed states as Pakistan and Israel, the two cancers in South Asia and west Asia. Russians have excelled in their military capability and now this Ukraine bloodbath is only being fanned by the Anglo-Zionist blood sucking leeches who want to destroy Ukrainian society and manpower.

Don’t be hard on China. We have agreed to buy Russia oil and gas in Rubles and also helping Russia via Iran and DRPK. China is slowly diversifying from the west, but we have to be careful until we have divested all funds from the west. It happening fast now. The Iranians and DPRK have been sanctioned for half a century and really don’t care.

I believe China is supplying indirectly through NK and Iran. All those components for those weapons and drones can only come from one source, CHINA. EVEN THE TAIWANESE DRONES ARE MOST LIKELY USING CHINESE PARTS.

Ashok Varma

Western sanctions bring Russia and India closer Moscow and New Delhi have deepened economic ties, as west fails to disrupt indo-Russo ties. India has also taken UK to task for supplying Pakistani weapons to Ukraine and said that such disregard for peaceful solution to the conflict in unacceptable.

In an unprecedented move, Indian and Chinese forces joined Russia in large scale military exercises in a humiliating rebuke to US and western efforts to create tensions between India and China. This is a glaring sign of Asian nations rejecting western neo-imperialist fantasies. JAI RUS!

We are two weeks in a non-event “offensive” and Ukraine has not made any significant gains and has wasted a lot of manpower. Russia will only consolidate in the winter and Europe will freeze. Many Germans are now against that senseless, but our totalitarian government has banned any dissent with jail terms. WE ARE LIVING IN A CORPORATE SURVEILLANCE STATE.

Euroman

Most of Europe is fed up with Ukraine. NATO offensive in Kherson is failing, US and UK who are most rabid enemies of Russia may modify their objectives in Ukraine in favor of a “negotiated settlement” with Russia Their Jew puppet Zelensky in July ruled out conceding land as part of a peace process, while President Putin said that negotiations would become harder the longer the conflict goes on. As the war continues to exacerbate high inflation and energy prices and social unraveling in EU zone, it may well become difficult for Ukraine’s cheerleaders to sell continued support to domestic electorates.

Hans

Ukraine won’t win war but NATO can ‘wreak havoc’ in the region: German Analysts

The west is arming Ukraine to keep the simmering bloodshed going, in the vain hope of weakening Russia, however, the opposite seems to be happening as Europe faces energy poverty and social collapse.

Assad Defeated Zionists

The illegal occupation by Israel of the Golan Heights is “null and void and without international legal effect” as per UNSC resolution 497, that doesn’t stop Israel from occupying it and Israel-first US politicians recognizing Israel’s illegal occupation. So I don’t see why NKorea can’t export its armaments, Russia annex whatever it wants from Ukraine and Iran acquiring nuclear weapons like Israel.

BREAKING: China to use ruble and yuan to pay for Russian gas as opposed to US Dollars.

Beijing (Xinhua) – China’s top legislator Li Zhanshu will visit Russia next week, state media reported Sunday, becoming the highest-ranking Communist Party politician to travel to the country since Moscow’s operation in Ukraine.

Beijing and Moscow have drawn closer in recent years, ramping up cooperation as part of what they call a “no limits” relationship, acting as a counterweight to the global dominance of the United States. Chinese support for Russia is also increasing as the west spread Sinophobia and fake stories and sell weapons to the Chinese province of Taiwan.

Its fine with me. Sout koreans and Japan might even support it. You should wonder why. Those N:K. cant even feed themself. They cant even make fertilizer anymore unless its for gunpowder.

They just send up missiles there to tell some of them still are alive.

it’s a fake. Russia does nt need artilery shells. They need manpower, as they trea their own soldiers as cannon fodder. Lack of training, lack of NCOs, no air superiority, no SEAD missions, are resulting in thousands of tdeaths that could have been prevented with a more professional and careful command of the russian forces.

To link Russia, with North Korea and Iran is all the paper is about. no truth to it. Russia does not need arty rounds from the dprk. Nor would they need rockets etc. The drone thing is also odd, maybe some truth to it but not one has been seen or none downed. So the story goes Russia needs drones cant make them and turns to Iran, without having seen a one in action there is now big problems with said drones not working right? pathetic …. just pathetic and yet believed by millions.

I find zero hedge to be questionable at best, unsubstantiated clickbait with a western leaning,just look at the sources, the states are desperate for some good news their currently trying to rally an already jaded audience to support more spending for Ukraine, to what end is debatable, there is no chance of winning and compared to the Russia public support at 70% there is little chance of Mr Putin easing off.Russia has been planning this for well over eight years Georgia was the precursor, so when euromaidan was initiated the west was given the rope to hang themselves,and fuck me aren’t they doing a bang up job on that, the idea that russia would have to turn to North Korea (no offence North Koreans) is indicative that there is some CIA intel behind this BS,another great bogie man for the yanks, now correct me if i’m wrong we had China and Iran already we just need Cuba and Venezuela to make the full set of dasterly anti american anti freedom countries.

How odd U.S. misled Nato emptying just about every nook and cranny for Soviet era weapons from over 30 states to send to Banderite Kyiv isn’t a sign of desperation by them but for Russia to be potentially acquiring Iranian or DPRK weapons, platforms and munitions is somehow desperation from them.

Usual collective West hypocrisy in logical thinking.

There is nothing the US warmongers can do to either Iran or DPRK. It is the height of shameless hypocrisy that the NATO and British bastards are upset that DPRK and Iran are supporting Russia, while these miserable racist western trash are even making the flood submerged impoverished Pakis to send weapons to Ukraine to kill Russians. There is a lot of public anger in India, a traditional Russian ally. Indian public loves Russians, even more after our students were abused by Ukrainian racist Nazi trash. Every Indian wants Russia to clobber the Ukrainian whores and pimps. JAI RUS!
