North Korea may increase the supply of artillery ammunition to Russia, but this is unlikely to have much significance for the course of the war against Ukraine.

Source: Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States; European Pravda with reference to The Guardian.

Details: Milley noted that the recent meeting in Russia between North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un and Russian President Vladimir Putin is likely to force North Korea to provide Moscow with Soviet-era 152mm artillery shells.

But he said it was not yet clear how much or how soon the ammunition would be provided.

"Would it make a huge difference? I’m sceptical of that," Milley said.

As he said, although he doesn't want to downplay the importance of the weapons assistance, "I doubt that it would be decisive."

Foreign governments and experts speculate that Kim is likely to supply ammunition to Russia in exchange for advanced weapons or technology.
