Secure Russian naval base processed alleged North Korean arms shipments: Imagery
NK Pro analysis also shows at least 2 other ships involved in operation, appearing to back up US claims of weapons sales
The Russian military is using a naval base that formerly helped transfer nuclear fuel to facilitate alleged weapons trade with North Korea, NK Pro analysis shows, after the U.S. presented its most explicit evidence to date of DPRK arms sales for use in Ukraine.
The U.S. announced on Friday that North Korea had sent over 1,000 shipping containers of military equipment from its northeast port of Rason to the Russian seaport of Dunay, before they were then transferred by train to a facility near the Ukrainian border.
