Oleksandr Turchynov: Ukrainian defense-industrial complex did not supply weapons and military technology to North Korea
Ukraine has always adhered to all its international commitments, therefore, Ukrainian defense and aerospace complex did not supply weapons and military technology to North Korea. This was stated by Secretary of the NSDC of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov in his comment.
According to him, some foreign media began to distribute false information regarding the transfer of missile technology to North Korea by "Yuzhmash".
"This information is not based on any grounds, provocative by its content, and most likely provoked by Russian secret services to cover their own crimes", - Mr. Turchynov said.
He stressed that Ukraine considers the regime of North Korea "totalitarian, dangerous and unpredictable, and supports all sanctions against this country". "As well as sanctions against the Russian Federation, the regime of which becomes increasingly similar to the North Korean", - Mr. Turchynov noted adding that since the outbreak of Russian aggression against our country in 2014, "Ukraine completely stopped supplying weapons, military equipment, and military technology to Russia".
"Ukraine has never supplied rocket engines and any missile technology to North Korea. We believe that this anti-Ukrainian campaign was triggered by Russian secret services to cover their participation in the North Korean nuclear and missile programs", - Secretary of the NSDC of Ukraine summarized.
