North Korea is now the primary weapons supplier for Vladimir Putin and his war in Ukraine.

Ukraine’s spy chief Krylo Budanov told the Financial Times on Sunday that North Korea are using Ukraine as a “testing ground” for ballistic missiles which are capable of using nuclear warheads.

In the interview with the FT the Ukrainian spy chief said that North Korea has “transferred a significant amount of artillery ammunition” to Russia.

He added, “This allowed Russia to breathe a little bit. Without their help, the situation would have been catastrophic.”

Budanov said that Russia is using more weapons and ammunition than they are able to produce.

The Ukrainian spy chief said, “This is precisely what motivates Russia’s search for weapons in other countries.”

Putin totally dislikes using foreign countries for help as this is “considered beneath them, it’s an indignity,” especially as Moscow are losing for more men than they are able to recruit.

South Korea’s representative to the United Nations, Hwang Joon-kook, warned that Pyongyang are using Ukraine as a “testing ground” for their nuclear capable ballistic missiles.

Kim Jong-Un’ sister threatened there will be an “immediate” nuclear strike on their enemies even over the “slightest provocation.”

North Korea’s cabinet warned there will be an “immediate military strike” on the West as tensions reach an all-time high.

Kim Yo-Jong said in a warning, “I make myself clear once again that the safety catch of trigger of the Korean People’s Army (KPA) had already been slipped.

“As already declared, the KPA will launch an immediate military strike if the enemy makes even a slight provocation.”

Then on Wednesday North Korea tested an underwater nuclear drone to “deter” the naval exercises between Japan the US and South Korea.

Kim Jong-un has declared that the long-standing peaceful union with South Korea will be scrapped and the constitution will be re-written to define the south as their most “hostile” opponent.

The North’s Defense Ministry said in a statement, “Our army’s underwater nuke-based countering posture is being further rounded off and its various maritime and underwater responsive actions will continue to deter the hostile military manoeuvres of the navies of the US and its allies.”

“We strongly denounce the US and its followers for their reckless acts of seriously threatening the security of the DPRK from the outset of the year and sternly warn them of the catastrophic consequences to be entailed by them,” it said, using the initials of North Korea’s formal name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
