Russia threatens to send weapons to DPRK if South Korea arms Ukraine

Deputy chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev threatens South Korea after Seoul says it may provide weapons to Ukraine.

This was reported by Sky News, according to Ukrinform.

The former president and long-term ally of Vladimir Putin, wrote on Telegram: "There are new ones willing to help our enemies.

"South Korean president Yun Sok-yeol said that, in principle, the state is ready to supply weapons to the Kyiv regime. Until recently, the South Koreans ardently assured that the possibility of supplying lethal weapons to Kyiv was completely ruled out."

Apparently hinting Moscow could send weapons to North Korea in retaliation, he added: "I wonder what the inhabitants of this country will say when they see the latest designs of Russian weapons from their closest neighbours – our partners from the DPRK?”

As reported, in the event of an escalation of violence and a massive attack on civilians, South Korea may join Western countries in providing military assistance to Ukraine.
