The U.S. Department of Defense believes that the North Korean regime continues to illegally supply Russia with weapons that it uses in its war against Ukraine.

Deputy Pentagon Press Secretary Sabrina Singh said this at a briefing on Monday, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

"We do assess that the partnership continues to flourish, that North Korea does continue to provide [military] support to Russia," she said.

When asked to specify what weapons the North Korean regime supplies to Russia, Singh noted that the Pentagon had previously declassified some information to the public. According to her, the issue concerns the supply of various weapons.
