Kyiv condemns Pyongyang’s ballistic missile launch

Ukraine strongly condemns recent and already second in last month North Korea's ballistic missile launch.

This is said in the statement of the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine.

"This launch is yet another daring violation of the international law and the relevant UN Security Council resolutions on the North Korean missile program," the statement reads.

The Foreign Ministry has also noted that Ukraine joins all those countries that favored the imposition of additional sanctions in order to return North Korea to the international legal field.

As reported, on Friday, a Hwasong-14 missile was launched already for the second time in North Korea. It flew 998 miles in 47 minutes. The maximum altitude of the flight was about 3,725 km. The experts believe that the intercontinental ballistic missiles designed in North Korea can reach most of the continental US territory.
