Ukraine, Jan 10 — Russia has already used missiles from North Korea, said the Prosecutor General of Ukraine, Andriy Kostin, in the ether of Suspilne.Sprotyv. 

“As for North Korea, recently, we’ve received the first proof that the RF’s army uses missiles manufactured in this country. The results of preliminary scientific expertise confirm that the missile Russians shot at Kharkiv’s downtown on January 2 is a short-range missile developed by North Korea,” Kostin said. 

According to Kostin, the military experts from the interdepartmental work group under the General Prosecutor’s Office reached the same conclusion. They visited the location of a hit site and conducted a preliminary review and analysis of different parts of the missile. Currently, they’re working on a complex expertise that will re-confirm this fact.
