Russia receives about million artillery shells from North Korea — Ukraine's Defence Intelligence
Vadym Skibitskyi, a representative of Ukraine's Defense Ministry's Intelligence Directorate, said that North Korea has already transferred about a million 122 mm and 152 mm artillery shells to Russia
He said this in an interview with RBC-Ukraine.
According to the intelligence representative, the most active supplies of ammunition from the DPRK were carried out in September, October and November 2023.
"These are mostly 122 mm and 152 mm ammunition supplied from the DPRK. According to our estimates, we are talking about about one million of these artillery munitions that were delivered to Russia. This is exactly the deficit that Moscow has in terms of rounds and cannot cover at the expense of its own production," Skibitskyi said.
At the same time, the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine is currently gathering information on whether Pyongyang has transferred ballistic missiles to Moscow for use against Ukraine.
