North Korea may send its soldiers to war in Ukraine - media
North Korea is ready to provide Russia with 100,000 "volunteers".
North Korea, whose leader Kim Jong-un has declared full support for Vladimir Putin in the war with Ukraine, may send its troops to participate in it. The New York Post writes about this with reference to Igor Korotchenko, a member of the public council under the Russian Ministry of Defense.
He said that such a possibility is being considered, and if such a step is approved, 100,000 "volunteers" could go to war with Ukraine.
If North Korea expresses a desire to fulfill its international duty to fight Ukrainian fascism, we must allow them to do so,” Korotchenko said.
He added that North Korean troops have good experience in "counter-battery warfare."
At the same time, the publication emphasizes that there is no other evidence of such an intention of the DPRK, except for Korotchenko's words.
