Ukraine could sell missile technology to North Korea for the sake of receiving a cash injection.

This was stated today at a press conference in Moscow, by an independent military expert, Vladimir Novikov, to the correspondent of “Politnavigator”.

“It is clear that Ukraine is extremely interested in obtaining financial resources, first of all, currency. Therefore, it is trying to expand its exports by all means. As part of the USSR, they created the most powerful missile delivery vehicles (the “Satan” rocket). If they sold it, then, most likely, it was a multi-step operation through third-fourth parties, ” Novikov said.

According to him, if Ukrainian technologies are in North Korea, this will help North Korea to create medium-range and longer-range missile delivery systems.

“Maybe even an intercontinental full range – about 9-11 thousand km. The question is, which part of the technology has North Korea obtained? The Koreans could quickly adapt it. In this I have no doubt, because the decades of development of their nuclear missile program have shown that Pyongyang conducts an extremely successful adaptation of the existing foreign technology, ” Novikov said.

The distance between Pyongyang and Washington is 11,048 km.
