South Korea's military says North Korea fired at least one missile toward the sea
The military of South Korea claims that North Korea has launched at least one ballistic missile into its eastern coasts. The launch on Wednesday took place while North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was visiting Russia for a summit with President Vladimir Putin and amid international worries about a prospective arms sale that may support Moscow's military efforts in Ukraine. The Joint Chiefs of Staff of South Korea did not immediately reveal how far the weapon flew. The missile has likely landed, according to the Japan Coast Guard, quoting the Tokyo Defense Ministry, but it is still important for ships near the Japanese shores to keep an eye out for falling items.
In order to replenish depleting stocks and extend his invasion of Ukraine, Putin could use his meeting with Kim to get additional shipments of North Korean artillery and other weapons. According to experts, in exchange, Kim could ask for the urgently required financial assistance and cutting-edge military technologies to enhance his nuclear-weapons and missiles program.
