UNITED NATIONS, Feb 6 (Reuters) – The United States accused Russia on Tuesday of firing at least nine North Korean-supplied missiles at Ukraine, while Moscow labeled Washington a “direct accomplice” in the downing of a Russian military transport plane last month.
Russia’s U.N. Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia and deputy U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Robert Wood traded the accusations at a U.N. Security Council meeting on Ukraine, requested by Moscow. Russia invaded neighboring Ukraine nearly two years ago.
“To date, Russia has launched DPRK-supplied ballistic missiles against Ukraine on at least nine occasions,” Wood told the 15-member Security Council, using the North Korea’s formal name: the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK).
“Russia and the DPRK must be held accountable for their actions, which undermine long-standing obligations under UN Security Council resolutions,” he said.

North Korean citizens are becoming increasingly skeptical of their political leadership, according to a report on the experiences of escapees.

The Unification Ministry of South Korea, a government organ focused on relations with the country’s northern neighbor, released a report Tuesday documenting social trends regarding North Korean leadership.

Interviews with North Korean defectors to South Korea have suggested decreasing confidence in Supreme leader Kim Jong Un and his family since the beginning of the last decade.

Between 2011 and 2015, approximately 42.6% of escapees said they had a negative opinion of the Kim family. From 2016 to 2020, that number increased to approximately 55%, the report claims.

“Negative public sentiments toward the ‘Paektu bloodline’-based leadership system have been increasing, and this perception appears to be gaining traction since Kim Jong-un assumed power (in late 2011),” the report reads, according to Yonhap News Agency.

As Pyongyang continues to enhance its nuclear and missile programs while refusing to engage with Washington, analysts are divided on whether the U.S. should continue pursuing denuclearization or consider possible arms control options.

North Korea has been escalating tensions in the region with missile launches and threats to occupy South Korea if war breaks out.

Its latest launch came on Friday. The country test-fired what it called a new type of anti-aircraft missile and conducted “a cruise missile super-large warhead power test” off its west coast, according to state media KCNA.

It was the fourth cruise missile test of the year, after the launch of a hypersonic inter-range ballistic missile on Jan. 14.

Why do CO2 lag behind temperature?

71% of the earth is covered by ocean, water is a 1000 times denser than air and the mass of the oceans are 360 times that of the atmosphere, small temperature changes in the oceans doesn’t only modulate air temperature, but it also affect the CO2 level according to Henry’s Law.

The reason it is called “Law” is because it has been “proven”!

“.. scientific laws describe phenomena that the scientific community has found to be provably true ..”

That means, the graph proves CO2 do not control temperature, that again proves (Man Made) Global Warming, now called “Climate Change” due to lack of … Warming is – again – debunked!
