DPRK may supply Russia with new types of tactical guided missiles in addition to the anticipated delivery of short-range ballistic missiles

Yonhap reports.

South Korean Defense Minister Shin Won-sik speculates that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's recent visit to ammunition production facilities may be linked to the supply of weapons from North Korea to Russia, suggesting a strengthening military cooperation between the two countries.

"North Korea said it will deploy (close-range ballistic missiles) with front-line troops. Given the recent arms trade, (I think) North Korea could sell them to Russia," Shin said.

It is noted that recently the White House declassified intelligence data indicating that North Korea provided Russia with ballistic missile launchers and several ballistic missiles with a range of 900 km.

“North Korea is estimated to have provided around 5,000 containers of weapons to Russia as of the end of December, which can accommodate some 2.3 million rounds of 152-millimeter shells or some 400,000 rounds of 122 mm artillery shells,” the article reads.

What is known about North Korea's supply of ballistic missiles to Russia 

On January 10th, it was revealed that South Korea's representative to the United Nations believes that North Korea is using Ukraine as a testing ground for missiles capable of carrying a nuclear payload.

According to a White House spokesman, on December 30, 2023, Russian forces launched at least one North Korean ballistic missile at Ukraine.

Later, the United States repeatedly stated that it had evidence that Russian terrorists continue to strike Ukraine with ballistic missiles produced in the DPRK.

The White House Emphasizes that Russia Utilized Missiles from North Korea in Strikes Against Kyiv, Kharkiv, Zaporizhzhia, and Other Cities in Ukraine, specifically during the period from December 30th to January 6th.

On January 10th, Foreign Ministers from 47 countries condemned North Korea for supplying ballistic missiles to Russia and their use by Russia against Ukraine.
