Russia wants to buy weapons from north korea to use against ukraine

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Russia Wants to Buy Weapons From North Korea to Use Against Ukraine” – below is their description.

Russia wants to buy millions of rockets and artillery shells from North Korea to use in its war against Ukraine, US officials said, in the latest sign that international sanctions are forcing Moscow to seek help from the nation’s smaller, impoverished neighbor.

The decision to buy the munitions indicated that Russia “continues to suffer from severe supply shortages in Ukraine due in part to export controls and sanctions,” State Department deputy spokesman Vedant Patel told reporters Tuesday.
