NYT: Putin buys ammunition from Kim Jong Un

by

Due to Western sanctions, Moscow is turning to North Korea for military supplies.

Russia is buying millions of artillery shells and rockets from North Korea, a New York Times article said today, citing newly declassified US intelligence documents.

According to the newspaper, Moscow’s turn to North Korea is a sign that global sanctions have severely restricted Russia’s supply chains, forcing Putin to turn to rogue states for military supplies.

The Times’ disclosure comes days after Russia received Iranian-made drones, some of which had mechanical problems, according to US officials.
