According to a US official, Pyongyang is selling millions of rockets and artillery shells to Moscow for use in Ukraine.
They further claimed that as the battle continued on, Russia might be compelled to purchase more North Korean weapons.
They noted that purchasing from North Korea is a symptom of “serious supply problems.”
The New York Times broke the news of the intelligence first. In a humorous response to the research, the Ukrainian defense ministry tweeted that it demonstrated how “Soviet weapons” had “exhausted their potential.”
The ministry claimed that while Russia was moving toward North Korean standards in all areas, including “arms, politics, and level of living,” while Ukraine was moving toward NATO norms.
The government of Kim Jong-un has attributed the crisis to the US and claimed that the West is pursuing a “hegemonic agenda” that justifies Russia’s use of force.
The Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics, two Russian proxy statelets in eastern Ukraine, gained independence last month, and North Korea pledged to strengthen its “comradely friendship” with Moscow.
According to Pyongyang official media, Vladimir Putin of Russia declared the two nations would strengthen their “comprehensive and positive bilateral relations.”
According to the Finnish research tank Centre for Research on Energy and Clean Air, general economic sanctions haven’t significantly reduced Russia’s revenue from energy exports.
According to the calculation, throughout the course of the six-month invasion, Russia made €158 billion (£136 billion) from rising fossil fuel prices, with imports from the EU making up the majority of that sum.
However, the US believes sanctions and export limits are having an impact on the Russian military.
The first shipments of drones produced in Iran have also been sent to Russia, Biden administration officials informed US media last week.
Russian personnel may have been to Iran to acquire training on the Mohajer-6 and Shahed family of weapons, according to US intelligence officials.
However, they recently disclosed to reporters that several of the drones have been plagued by mechanical and technological issues ever since they were delivered.
Iran has publicly denied providing weaponry to either side of the conflict, but US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan claimed in July that Tehran intended to give Moscow hundreds of drones, some of which could be used in battle, for its struggle in Ukraine.
In a daily briefing on Tuesday, UK defense officials stated that due to heavy “combat casualties,” Russia was finding it difficult to keep up its supply of battlefield drones.
In other developments in Ukraine on Tuesday:
A gasoline storage was set on fire in the Kryvyi Rih area of central Ukraine as a result of new Russian missile strikes, according to reports from all around the nation. The Dnipropetrovsk region governor shared a picture of the facility spewing out heavy, black smoke. Valentyn Reznichenko stated that it was struck with two missiles on Monday evening, but that there was no immediate word of casualties.
Local authorities in Kharkiv, Ukraine, said that a woman’s body was discovered after a hit demolished the upper level of an apartment building.
Donetsk’s Russian-backed separatists said on Tuesday that Ukrainian government forces had shelled some areas of the eastern city, injuring one civilian.
