The state corporation Roscosmos has denied accusations of cooperation with North Korea in the field of missile technology. It was stated that they do not cooperate with North Korea, because in the framework of their activities they “strictly observe the requirements of the legislation of the Russian Federation” and international arms control regimes, and comply with the requirements of the UN Security Council.
On August 14, the newspaper The New York Times published an article stating that the latest successes of North Korea in testing intercontinental ballistic missiles are related to the purchase of rocket engines on the black market, “probably from a Ukrainian plant that has historical links to the Russian missile program “.
In Ukraine, they said that they had not supplied any engines to North Korea, and that the Ukrainian anti-campaign had been provoked by Russian special services that supposedly covered up Russia’s participation in North Korean missile programs.
